Cow asks man to rescue her newborn calf

68098 ratings | 5458016 views
Flo is a cow who lives on a beautiful farm near Millbrook, Ontario. She spends her days in a lush, green pasture that borders on a country road. The cows have access to a nice pond for drinking and for cooling off in. She shares this pasture with a herd of cows and some newborn calves. Flo delivered a calf herself but it was born on a slope between the pond and the fence. It slid down and under the fence, becoming trapped outside the field. It's not clear how long the calf was lying there, but the fresh umbilical cord showed that it had been born that day. It was also dry, which suggested that it had been lying in the sun for a little while. The calf may have tried to get back to its mother but the electric fence made this impossible. Dave was passing by on the road when he saw the cows enjoying a dip in the pond to get out of the heat. He stopped to video tape the cows as they did so. He noticed a cow to his left that was acting agitated. Dave doesn't know a lot about cows but he knew it was unusual for a female to scrape the dirt and make so much noise. He set his camera on the fence post and watched, confused by what was going on. He could see that her ear tag said "Flo". He eventually noticed that she was looking through the fence and then back at him. She seemed a little frantic as she mooed and he walked closer with his camera to see what she was doing. It became obvious that she had been asking for help. Dave saw her newborn calf in the long grass but he wasn't sure if her behavior had been a cry for help or a warning to stay away from her baby. The calf needed to get milk from the mother and he could also wander out on the road if something wasn't done. There was no gate nearby and Dave didn't want to try moving the calf far away from Flo. Dave decided that the best way to help was to lift the wires and pushh the calf under the fence. The calf seemed to tired to help and there was no way to avoid contact with the fence. Flo seemed to understand that her calf was being moved toward her, but Dave was very aware that only a flimsy fence would be between them if she became upset with what was happening. Dave was getting shocked and the calf was too. He hoped it would not cry out in pain before he could get the job done. Eventually, the calf was on the other side of the fence and reunited with his mom. The two immediately sniffed each other and began walking out into the pasture together. Dave spoke with the farmer and his wife, who did not realize that she had calved. They invited Dave to join them as they tagged the calf's ear and treated the umbilical cord with iodine. They checked the calf and found that it was healthy and unharmed. Dave took his camera along and filmed the two as they mingled with the herd. The calf wandered up to Dave for a curious sniff, as did Flo, seemingly recognizing him. They both wandered off and Flo's little calf was soon happily nursing as if nothing had happened. Although Dave was slow to catch on, Flo was obviously distressed and was aware that Dave could help her. She looked at him expectantly as she paced between him and her baby in a very clear attempt to communicate. We often underestimate an animal's intelligence and capacity for emotion. Flo showed a healthy amount of both in this case. You can't deny the love she felt for her newborn calf.

Nobody is making any jokes about the fact that this happened in Canada and his name was "Dave"? 🙈

bless that man for helping that calf.

These cows seem rightfully timid around the human. I would be too if mankind enslaved, stole my babies, killed my boys, raped, and murdered me for an unnecessary meal.

Thank you for helping the baby. Sad to see those things in their ears...sigh, you could see all of the flies drawn to the one on the baby. I wonder what this person keeps the cows for?

Animals have more feelings and more sense than people give them credit for. I really think they can talk, they just don't want to bother talking to us.

Roshan Tiwari (2 months ago)
it takes my heart out when people kill these emotional creatures. Cows give a lot for humans milk and whole dairy line. I grew up with many of them and although i am a meat eater I stick to chicken and fish, somehow i cant bring myself to eat a cow.

Beautiful things happen to grateful animals. I have seen so many humans full of them selves so entitled so narcissistic I better deal with animals that have no human brains
Efrain Mcshell (2 months ago)
This is another lesson on gratitude.

It’s a beautiful thing to save the life of an innocent animal, but sad that both the mother, baby, and the rest of the cows will all be killed within a few years. Whether this is a dairy or meat farm, these cows will be killed. If we think it’s a beautiful, compassion thing what this guy did rescuing a cow, then be compassionate and kind then go vegan. Veganism is about not contributing to the suffering of animals.

How many volts do those fences have? It said in the video both the calf and the man were getting shocked but really couldn't tell if they were or not.
WildCreatures (2 months ago)
Jessi Soto Thank you. Adrenaline helped, lol
Jessi Soto (2 months ago)
+WildCreatures That's understanding. I just thought you were dealing with some high voltage. Thanks for replying and helping :).
WildCreatures (2 months ago)
Jessi Soto It’s set low. But I wasn’t going to jump or shout because I was more worried about the mother reacting.

Clickbait title: the cow DIDN'T ask man to help her, she just stared at the calf, trying to figure out how to help him avoiding the electric wires.

In india protecting cows from flesh traders who kidnap them,kill eat,leather etc is termed as an act of right wing extremism by commies! What u do when armed robbers attack u,shoot them!

I have had this exact experience many times. Calves need rescue from this or that several times per year, sometimes only minutes from dying

She invited him over for a cold glass of milk.
JillM1000 (3 months ago)
Rescued for a veal crate.  Rescued for slaughter.  Rescued so the mother can panic when they drag the calf away.  She probably wanted Dave to take her calf which she birthed in secret because she probably had 10 before that ripped from her.  The dairy industry is cruel beyond belief.
WildCreatures (3 months ago)
JillM1000 You didn’t read the narrative and you’re completely wrong. It’s a beef farm, and they refuse to raise veal. Aside from the inevitable slaughter, the life they lead is ideal. The whole point of this video is that cows and all animals deserve better treatment. People can go vegan, or they can buy from ethical farmers like this one. Anything at all is better than buying from factory farms.
