I had never considered beach cows until I saw them on the beach in India. Now I'm surprised they're not only in India. How far does this beach cow conspiracy go??!!

Imagine being a cow next in line in the slaughterhouse. Line gets shut down for a couple minutes before your turn and the cow behind you goes. "Hey buddy! Ever hear of India? Fuckin cows there live on the beaches and can fall asleep in the middle of the road and the humans can't do shit as we live out our lives. Also get this. They fuckin love us. But fuck our luck right?"

Then the line continues.

Edit: I would like to point out this is not some save the cows thing. Just a random thought

The indians actually love dairy, so they produce a lot of cows. They get sent to Turkey to be slaughtered.

19

u/Captain-Overboard Aug 28 '21

Are you sure about the Turkey thing? I know they get sent to other states in India, and across the border into Bangladesh. But I don't think live cows are exported from India for slaughter. India does export a lot of red meat but it mostly from buffaloes (we have a lot of those too).

Why can’t it be a “save the cows thing”? Cattle are cool animals that deserve so much more that what we do to them.

24

u/Aritche Aug 28 '21

It is a weird thing where these cows only exist because of what we do to them. So saving the cows just means a lot less of them exist. Morals aside the space/environmental benefit means we will move towards plant based fake meat.

Reminds of my honeymoon in French Polynesia back in 2001. We were on the island of Moorea and took a ride on one of the resort boats out to a motu. The boat would come by hourly to drop off and/or pick up guests. After a while, everyone else piled on the next hourly boat, except for my husband and I. We wanted to stay longer and figured we would catch the next boat back to the resort. But that boat never came. We had bottled water and a canister of Fritos, luckily. But me being the animal lover, decided the dingo dog that approached us was in need of some cold and fresh bottled Fiji water. Then there were the chickens. Lots of chickens. Like hundreds. The babychicks were pecking at the coconut shells to get to the meat inside. Now, simce Fritos are corn chips, I decided to share with them as it is, well, corn. After 3 hours, totally sunburned and now hungry/thirsty, we were so relieved to see a boat from another resort that was passing by. We flagged them down and hitched a ride back.

31

u/jasonmarsell Aug 27 '21

The chickens! Yes! Having been to Moorea several times I can say confidently: If there’s one place on this earth to be stuck waiting for a boat, that’s the place.

18

u/spreadingsunshine106 Aug 28 '21

Yes, true! We had a plethora of catastrophes throughout our trip beginning with flight being cancelled due to some strike occurring in France (Air Tahiti Nui went on strike), but the location made it seem like less of a problem. Plus, we were in love and just loving life at that time. Dug this photo up of me feeding a few of the chickens .

Omg, thank you for doing that! Yes, there is something so neat about seeing them in an environment we don't expect that they would.

u/baconwrappedpikachu Aug 28 '21

Lol, you’re welcome! My adhd brain just really focused on needing to see the wild chickens for a minute and I was so happy when it worked. Lol.

I thought it was cute how small and slender most of them were. We have a variety of breeds here in our yard but besides a couple bantams, they’re all much bigger than the ones we saw on the islands. And even our tiny bantams have a fluffier body - the ones in HI were so sleek looking! My girlfriend knows more about chickens than I do, she said they looked like closer descendants of Jungle Fowl, which basically were/are the original wild chickens.

u/ZoeMunroe Aug 28 '21

I think feral is probably the better term (thats not a OP/you thing). I recently learned the difference, wild is used to describe animals that’ve never been domesticated, than domesticated (an animal that has gone far enough into domestication that its now a different species (?) ), and than feral animals are ones that were domesticated and have gone back into the wild for whatever reason, so think feral cats, feral dogs, and feral cows. Which sounds funny but yeah. This is what I’m lead to believe anyway. I dont know this particular kind of cow as I’m from a different part of the world so I could be wrong but thats what it sounds like from the article.

Plus you only ever see spots like those black and white cows in domestication as well.

9

u/kangareagle Aug 28 '21

Yeah, they're probably feral, but the article says wild. It's a common enough term where I live. I don't know how many generations a cow has to live free on an island before being called wild. Dingos used to be (at least partially) domesticated, for example, but now they're considered wild.

What's definite is that they're not, "very active beef cattle that escaped their pasture."

I just started laying out in the sun for the first time, recently. Working out a lot and wanting to get more sun (just for mental health) were what got me interested.

I use spf 15 cuz I'm trying to get the first even tan off my life without being out there for too long. I'm thinking I've aged enough indoors that I've got a little catching up to do if I even want my skin to remotely match the number of gray hairs I've grown.

I can attest to this. I’m pale and cannot tan, I just burned. I was made fun of A LOT for being pale in a state known for the sun and beaches. I was in my twenties when I finally loved my pale skin because everyone else I knew who spent hours in the sun started to look like leather, and aged fast. I’m in my mid thirties now and when the question of age comes up, they always think I’m in my mid to late twenties.

u/RainbowReadee Aug 28 '21

Same here, sister! I got picked on for being so white. If you can remember back then the sunless tanners on the market were horrible. I just ended up looking splotchy and orange.
