At The End Of The Day, Cows And Dogs Really Aren’t That Different

Cows, along with other farm animals, get an undeserved reputation for being dumb and void of emotion, not to mention stinky.

Sure, they may not smell the best all the time, but they are certainly not stupid, and they are very curious and caring creatures.

Cows love to cuddle up with each other and show affection. They are social animals who have shown emotional intelligence in more than one study. According to research, they exhibit signs of anxiety when kept in isolation and can solve puzzles.

These following photos show that cows are, in fact, not all that different from the canine companions we treat with so much respect.

Perhaps it is time to really take action in making conditions for our farm animals across the world much more humane. They are living creatures who feel pain and suffering, too!

Have you ever snuggled up with a sweet, sleepy cow? Do you think you’ll look at a cow differently next time you see one?
