Here’s a video of a cow eating a live bird

I’m a vegetarian. I view it as a personal choice, and I never tell anyone else what to eat or not eat.

When I see a live bird, I don’t think of it as being food. A dog or a cat does see it as food, which is why they they chase them, kill them, and eat them.

But cows – I always thought cows were vegetarians. And I still think they are. But I guess the label isn’t always 100% accurate.

Driver wants deer crossing signs moved to areas with less traffic

“I wanted to voice my opinion on something that’s been bothering me for a really long time. I tried writing the newspaper and contacting TV stations but nobody seems to want to stick with this so I’m calling you guys. Over the past few years I’ve been involved in three separate car accidents involving deer. Each of these incidents occurred shortly after I saw a deer crossing sign on the highway.”

I don’t know what this reminds me of more – an old prison movie, or a children’s fairy tale

Associated Press reports:

Kangaroo escapes with help of fox and boar

German wildlife zoo staff search for kangaroo after animals from neighbouring woods dig holes under park fences

A kangaroo is on the run in Germany after breaking out of a wildlife park, with a fox and a wild boar as his suspected accomplices.

Michael Hoffmann, assistant head of the Hochwildschutzpark Hunsrück west of Frankfurt, said on Monday the male kangaroo was one of three that escaped overnight on Saturday with the inadvertent help of the menagerie that lives in the local woods.

Hoffmann said the kangaroos got out of their enclosure after a young fox snuck into the park and dug a hole next to the cage’s fencing. Two of the three were then able to escape the park entirely through another hole dug by a wild boar under the exterior fence.

“We’ve got two of them back; now we’re just looking for the third.”
