Cows are one of the few animals that can cry, as a man, and a cow and bull on the nose have a unique pattern (like fingerprints in humans). Moreover, they are observant, they are also well trained on the mistakes of the relatives. For example, if one representative of the herd will be electrocuted when she touches the fence, no one from her family to this place not even fit. Many of us believe that animals can produce only the sound of "Moo!", actually scientists have proven that this sound has 11 types of intonations. And yet, the bulls and cows absolutely do not distinguish colors. In bullfighting red cloth is used exclusively in order to attract the attention of the viewer and the animals are rife only what is in front of them waving some strange cloth. The UN has calculated that cows cause the Earth's environment more damage than cars or airplanes. The explanation is: they directly or indirectly relate to the allocation of 18% of all greenhouse gases in the world. Only cow manure and gases form a third of the greenhouse gas methane, which heats the Earth 20 times faster than carbon dioxide.
