Goats on a plane

Yesterday I had no immediate plans to fly on Nepal Airlines. Today I have no plans to fly with them, ever:

Nepal’s state-run airline has confirmed that it sacrificed two goats to appease a Hindu god, following technical problems with one of its aircraft.

What, no chickens? The radio news ran this as an amusing ‘and finally’, but it’s not particularly funny for a) the goats b) the passengers.
