Remember the California Milk Commission commercials about happy cows and happy milk?
Anyway, I know a lot of vegan, animal lovers, animal rights types and they're always telling me about how intelligent animals are, almost always comparing animal intelligence to human intelligence. Having grown up in a small rural town, having worked on farms, and being an avid hiker backpacker who has seen plenty of animals up close, I always point out that we are all intelligent in the way we need to be to survive, and it's foolish to compare people and, let's say cattle. Still, I can't help but wonder, is the one cow saying to the other, "I hate being all penned up in a zoo. Ah, to run free." While the other replies, "Well, we're not being eaten here, so stop complaining."
Another contact print with glass negative from Toronto. Perhaps the Toronto Zoo.
