The Püntas in ''Gearing Up'' have a tradition to this effect as well, to the degree that the yak-like animals walk up to them for slaughter before dying of old age.

* In one chapter of the ''KeroroGunsou'' manga, Natsumi is called in to deal with one of Keroro's invasion schemes that involved exploiting Earthlings' dependency on cattle, which somehow lead to Giroro being turned into a minotaur-esque half-cow, half-Keronian monster and going on a rampage in the Keronian base. When Mom brings home hamburgers for dinner later that day, Natsumi feels inspired to do this trope.
