Baby buffalo dying or already starving, alone and far from their mothers. Because they are not needed, not being able to produce milk. Because they are too expensive to maintain. On the other hand the milk should only be used to make mozzarella it cannot be wasted on feeding them, which represent only an unnecessary burden. We might as well make them perish slowly, without them not even take the "inconvenience" of suppressing them.
