Back to the wild

A Dutch cow, Her­mien, was on the news because she escaped from a trans­port to a slaugh­ter­house six weeks ago, and has been liv­ing in the woods ever since. Anoth­er news item was about a cow in Poland who escaped and joined a herd of wild bison.

The Par­ty for the Ani­mals is rais­ing mon­ey to take Her­mien to a rest home for cows. I think it’s a nice cam­paign. Her­mien reminds us that cows can make up their own minds and deserve to be free.
