ANIMAL FORTEANA


In the beginning of things men were animals and animals men. ~ Algonquin saying

"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons." ~ The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy

poorrichard's blog: Police armed with sub-machine guns stalk streets hunting for a runaway COW

I saw this story a few days ago but chose not to post about it because I try to stay away from animal cruelty or gratuitous content. But, as "poor richard" writes, it is an over the top reaction by humans to a sad situation. All the more sad since, if it weren't for the desire within so many humans to eat beef, the incident wouldn't have happened in the first place. This story is a reminder that animals are extremely cognizant of the slaughter is going on around them, and, that they themselves are about to endure.

I also suspect that, while on the surface, the police in this story act like Keystone cops, their "over the top" get up and response is intentional. In a gestalt context, it's all about control, show of force, and fear. poorrichard's blog: Police armed with sub-machine guns stalk streets hunting for a runaway COW
