Daily Cute: Happy Cows Dance into a Meadow After a Long Winter

Daily Cute: Happy Cows Dance into a Meadow After a Long Winter

In Overath near Cologne, Germany, these cows were about to be sent to the slaughterhouse. The farmer could no longer afford to keep them, and there was nowhere else for them to go. Anke Heublein, who saw them on the farm all the time, decided she couldn’t stand back and let that happen. She started a foundation to save the cows and allow them to live out their lives playing in the pasture and running through the grass.

Watch how happy these cows are as they leap for joy when they go out to pasture for the first time after a long winter spent indoors.

Any cattle, pig, chicken "farmers" involved in the slaughter "industry" all deserve only one thing, to be forced in to bankruptcy. I hope they go homeless as well and end up floating face down in a polluted river.

It's great that they've been able to provide a sanctuary/ retirement home for these cows - avoiding their being "thrown away" once no longer economically viable. Glad the throw-away society has its opposition groups - kudos to this family & its supporters!
