The Tomb of the Unknown Animals.

Build the tomb and I will visit it to pay homage to all the wonderful animals who made the ultimate sacrifice so that I could enjoy a delectable meal.  Both the Jews and Muslims see the dispatching of the animal as a spiritual event and have special rituals which are performed when dispaching the animal. In the Bible, animals were killed and burned as sacrifice to God.  Jesus multiplied both the fishes and the loaves of bread. Most Bhudists and Hindus, however, are vegetarians although they do steal the baby's milk from the cows. (My uncle would always thank the beast for its sacrifice when he said the blessing before the meal.)   ----    Stephen
