This video tells the story of "Flo", a wonderful cow with a beautiful disposition, as she encountered serious difficulty soon after giving birth to her baby. On a very hot, spring day in Millbrook, Ontario, Flo was near the pond in the meadow that she called home. She and the rest of the herd live on a gorgeous farm where the cows wander freely and graze as they wish. It's life as close as possible to what nature intended for these sweet creatures. For whatever reason, Flo found herself beside the pond and up against the electric fence when it was time for her baby to be born. This fence is there to keep the cows from wandering on the highway and to keep predators out. The voltage is actually dialed down to a low setting. But her calf must have been slippery enough that it slid down the small slope and under the wires. It would have been difficult, if not impossible for the calf to get back under the fence, and Flo could not get to her newborn. The sun was beating down and the baby was supposed to be nursing, getting that first crucial dose of antibodies in his mother's collostrum. (First milk) Dave, a passing motorist who lived nearby had stopped with his GoPro camera because he wanted to film the other cows splashing and bathing in the pond. Their behaviour seemed interesting enough that he wanted to get some video. He stood by the fence with one camera in his hand and another on the fence post. He saw Flo acting annoyed to his left but he thought maybe she was just trying to express displeasure that he was near the fence. Dave knew very little about cattle and he had no idea that her unusual display was actually a request for help. Still not catching on, Dave began to film Flo as she pawed at the ground and paced back and forth. She looked at him and mooed as she did so. Even the other cows knew something was wrong and they came over to look. Flo was looking at the same spot outside the fence, and at Dave alternately. Dave decided he better investigate and he took his camera with him. He saw a small, newborn calf on the outside of the fence. It was lying still and appeared to be either dead or paralyzed with fear. When Dave got closer, he could see that it was OK but that it wasn't able to help itself. Dave knew the wires between him and the mother were not solid enough to hold her back if she objected to him going near the calf but he was now starting to understand that this is what she was asking him for. Cautiously, he moved over to the calf and used a stick to lift the lower wires. He could see the name "Flo" on her ear tag and he spoke to her as he worked to get the calf back into the meadow. The calf's umbilical cord was very fresh, showing that he was just born. Flo relaxed visibly as she saw what Dave was doing. Her agitation decreased and even the sound of her bellows had changed. She made no sign that she was angry as he shoved and wiggled the calf under the wires. The calf and Dave both touched the wire and got a few shocks in the process but Dave was relieved that the calf didn't cry out, as this could alarm Flo. An angry mama cow can sometimes be protective if they sense their babies are being hurt. The calf was eventually reunited with his mother and she promptly licked him and checked him over. As Dave walked away from the fence, she gave him a long look that seems to convey understanding and relief that this stranger had helped her baby. She led him off into the meadow and he was able to nurse right away. The farmers, who had been on an errand while this was happening arrived as she was leading the calf away. Dave offered to help them catch the calf so it could treat the umbilical cord with iodine and give it a checkup. They also had to tag the calf ("F20"). Dave filmed the two as they grazed with the herd. Unbelievably, the little calf saw Dave and wandered up to him curiously, seeming to recognize him from earlier in the afternoon. Flo also seemed to remember Dave and she gave him a long look before wandering off behind her baby. Dave was surprised by Flo's ability to communicate her need for help, as well as her patience with his inability to understand. She persisted until he finally got the message. What was also impressive was the depth of emotion that she showed for her calf, despite the widespread claims that animals are not capable of profound emotion. And one more thing about this encounter struck Dave as remarkable. Flo and her calf seemed to be able to remember that Dave had helped them. Dave created a video about this experience to demonstrate Flo's capacity for emotion, as well as he.

One of my best friends who grew up on his parents small cattle farm was of the definite view that cattle are a hell of a lot smarter than we give them credit for and in pretending that they are dumb sort of unwrites our intentions to eat them in good conscience. My God Its such a terribly sad world we live in.

That is why we Hindus revere the Cow and don’t gulp them down as food! Anyone who has had a cow in his farm house knows that they are very intelligent, caring and loving animals. They are like dogs pretty much.

Why ruin the video with a lie like "The fence is giving them both shocks but the calf doesn't cry"? That's obviously not an electric fence. The bare wire directly touches metal poles instead of insulators. Yes, I've put up a few.

I recon most vertebrate could tap into collective wisdom of its species overtime. For domesticate animals, they look at human and they feel comfort. If a human approaches a horse that doesn't know it, the horse doesn't attack unless the human interacts with it in the wrong way. If a bear or a hippo approaches a horse out of curiosity, the horse may avoid contact or attack. One would think that is a result of socialisation. But I think that memory pass down from ancestor plays a role in its behaviour. A human that approaches wild animals isn't as lucky - walk into the animal turf and suffer for its wrath. Walk to a bull and pet it on the shoulder, and it lets you. Must be memory from its previous generations. Experiment on rat shows that children of the mother rat which had come to associate a certain smell with pain, they also know the same smell being dangerous and should be avoid. A lot of us suffer from phobic for spider, snake and scorpion etc, it's probably caused by memory passed down to them from their ancestors. It is likely not a result of chemical composition in the DNA molecule.

Flo wouldn't do that with a dog, a cat, a horse, only with a human. Animals know we are the only species that can help if it wants to. They know why we showed up on this planet. Nothing is on this planet for no purpose. We just don't know why we are here.

While I definitely think the cow was agitated around the problem of the calf being out of reach and looking for "help" in some way, I think it's too easy to project detailed evidence of human-type thought to the cow, based on looks it gives or activity it does around the time of the rescue. I think we tend to pick and choose the behavior that supports the idea that cow is thinking certain things and not count when it doesn't work right. For instance, it says at the end that "They seem to recognize him." Maybe, but just as likely in their world they equate humans with having food, the primary instinct of all animals. Once the calf sees an empty hand, it wanders away. That's not to say cows aren't friendly. I'm just saying there are alternative explanations that aren't so Disneyesque.
WildCreatures 7 дней назад
scribe570 I’m pretty sure four hour old calves that are nursing don’t look to humans for food. I was the first human it ever saw. Then the farmers. Then me again. It never received food. As for the pacing and mooing...maybe that was all just random? The cow knows humans can help. It wanted something done. It really doesn’t make sense any other way.

Ummm, for those of you who are around cows, recognize the pawing of the earth as a warning of "come closer and I'll try to put you in the dirt". Most of it is a bluff but sometimes this is quite real. She was protecting her calf. Attributing a dialogue seems sweet, and I feel animals have intelligence and often communicate, but this narrative, while sweet is CaCa. When a cow calves, they can be extra protective. Use caution and be alert if you see this 'communication'. Most of the time it means, "Stay clear, I'm concerned and serious!"
WildCreatures 14 дней назад
Jared Bartel that’s exactly right. Which is why I approached so cautiously, even with the fence between us. But then you can see that she relaxed. She definitely wanted help, even though she was also wary.

thats totally fabricated. that camera is 'locked off' fixed on a tripod in wierd shot that no camera man would make use of. theres no reason to frame a shot like that unless you specifically wanted to make that exact video. so he just hanging around fields with a video camera and a tripod and that just randomly happened?? no mate.
WildCreatures 17 дней назад
nobby styles The description explains it. The camera was running already, because I wanted footage of the cows in the pond. I had another camera in my hand but I hung it in the tree when I got the stick. It was mostly because I expected the cow might charge through the fence and trample me and I figured I might as well record it. It was not until I looked at the footage later from the fence post that I realized what an amazing story. It’s about a cow that can feel emotions for her baby, and who can communicate need to a human. This video is not really about rescuing a calf. It’s about a cow’s emotional capacity and intellect. Why not post the story and try to change the minds of people who are OK with cruelty in the farming industry. And why not try to promote farms like this one, where cows are treated much better. There was a lot to accomplish here, but I assure you that making a self-serving video was not one of them. Promoting ethical farming as an easy and logical choice was my intent.
