    Does YOUR COW hold a grudge?

    Cows are capable of strong emotions such as pain, fear and even anxiety about the future. But if farmers provide the right conditions, they can also feel great happiness.
    The findings have emerged from studies of farm animals that have found similar traits in pigs, goats and chickens. They suggest such animals may be so emotionally similar to humans that welfare laws need to be reconsidered.

    I got it ... I got it ...
    Mr. Harold G. Hart, of Neillsville WI was only doing case study work when ahem bonkin' the calves to see if they'd hold grudges.

    Drop the charges, really, he was only doing research!

    I don't care I am still eating steak!
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
