Holy Cow!

Whilst out and about in Bangalore, you see many cows roaming the streets and roads. Because they are considered sacred they are allowed to roam freely. On my trip into town today we were stuck in a traffic for much longer than usual. The problem was a cow, standing in the middle of a very busy road without a care in the world. I also saw a cow today plonk itself down in a very decorative plant display outside a hotel. I had no time to get the shot unfortunately, instead below are cows rummaging through a rare green area where rubbish has been dumped. Cows succumb to stomach problems or even die because they have digested plastic bags. It is a very sad to see dogs, cows and goats looking for food in the piles of rubbish around the street.


  1. Hi Laura! Just thought I'd check to see if you got your blog back.
    So glad that you are still here.

    I can surely imagine the issue of a cow in the middle of the road, but I think it would be nice to see them roam free too.


  2. Holy Cow is right...can't believe they just wander and yes, it is sad that they end up eating things that eventually kill them. Hope things are well with you!!

  3. I don't think I could cope with that! great shot though

  4. Well, that is sad. I'm afraid if cows held up traffic here, someone would take to shooting them and taking them home for supper.
