Those look like they'd be really cuddly with some A1 sauce and a side of mashed potatoes.

Walker: One shake of its head and that horn is going thru your neck dude.


Usually, if a cow has horns, it's a show animal or a pet, and so more human-habituated and less likely to attack.  Dairy cows often have their horn buds removed when they're calves to prevent them from injuring other cows.  Also, you don't get much milk out of a bloody horn.

Cuddly, but not actually a cow.

Farce-Side: Cows kill more people every year than sharks and wolves.


To be fair, people don't usually handle large herds of sharks and wolves or try to maneuver them into pens or milking machines.  I mean, sharks don't give milk, and there's just not a big market for wolf milk these days, ya know?

Welp, didn't take long for this to turn into one of those threads...

Fine, here's my contribution:

Jesus Christ people!  Get a dog or volunteer at a shelter. Don't pay $75/hour to annoy a cow.

Isn't too much proximity to animals how we got into this quarantine mess in the first place?  Won't people ever learn?

You want a cuddly friend?  Get a cat, dog, bunny, ferret, guinea pig or hamster.  Maybe even a "fancy" rat.  That's it.  Those are your choices.  Chinchillas don't like contact and everything else - sugar gliders, lemurs, and the like - aren't domesticated and don't belong with people.

Cows & pigs are meat, sheep are wool-factories, and horses - while I have seen how much they enjoy human attention - are working animals.  Unless it's your job to produce steak, pork chops, sweaters, or... whatever we use horses for in the 21st century, stay the heck away.

And for pete's sake, if you ever find yourself in front of a deer or a bison or something, don't try to pet the damned thing.  I thinks you're trying to hurt it and it will kill you immediately.  And in the case of the deer, it will apparently then rip the bones from your carcass and devour them...  Deer got issues, apparently.

Hubby's Family has a small dairy (eldest brother & his son own 50%, remainder owned by rest of Family until they buy us investors out). Hubby thinks cows are "cute" & occasionally mentions having one as a pet. I remind him he kvetches when he goes gathering poop from our 20 lb Jackhound (Jack Russell/Dachshund mix, adopted from shelter after being abandoned in the country @6 mos old when the new wore off) in the designated, small and fenced "dogyard" we've set aside for him. That shuts him up for a while.

Our annual interest on the loan to BiL includes 3% interest (he's family, it was in a period when 7-8% was the norm) & a half-cow & a half-pig in the freezer. Everybody's happy with the terms.

Pet cow, my tuchus. Go to the dairy & hug dinner.

Cow cuddling sounds kind of dangerous. Shouldn't you get out of there as soon as your done lest the farmer catch you?

Nice, use the cow for emotional support then eat her distant cousins on the way home.


Yes, I know most meat comes from steer.
