Off Topic – Bad Cow Disease

When Cows go Bad

So the dog ate the chooks right?

One of best friends, Karthik, recently sent me an article from his local newspaper in Tamil Nadu, India.

It seems that a local farmer was distraught that his chickens were going missing – 48 in one month!

Fido, of course, was right at the top of the suspect list.

Wolf in Cow’s Clothing?

So Ajit Gosh and his family dutifully stood guard at the cow shed (which also served as a hen coop) one night, and watched in horror as the family’s sacred cow unwittingly spared rex from becoming the family’s next dodgy vindaloo –

“Instead of the dogs, we watched in horror as the calf, whom we had fondly named Lal, snuck to the coop, grabbed the little ones with the precision of a jungle cat and gobbled them up,” Gour Ghosh, his brother, said.

An Udder-ly Senseless Waste!

They might look cute, but this, if anything, goes to prove that the saying ‘the eyes are the window to the soul’ is not at all true. Behind those dulcet eyes lies a sophisticated and deadly predator.

Don’t believe me? The photo above was taken in Far North Queensland, Australia, an area populated with venomous snakes, spiders and other deadly hunters like the crocodile. But these folks aren’t so worried bout the crocs – nope, they know a real killer when they see one 🙂

    I don’t know what’s funnier. The cow-monster or the ad for innovative chicken coops — a coop that would surely outsmart the cow. And let’s not miss out on that cow ringtone. Google is pure genius.

    I’ve got an ad for cowshed spa products (?!?!) – I’ve heard of the wagu cattle they feed beer and otherwise pamper in Japan, but Cow Spas? Thats a stretch 🙂
