Bullying with a fatal end

Bullying is not just a human thing, it happens with cows, too. And there isn’t even a bull involved. “We had a cow that just didn’t have a lot of personality or confidence”, says Adrian Riebli from Alp J√§nzimatt. “She always was pushed around by the others.”
In order to help her they milked her first. Then they gave her a louder bell, which indeed raised her confidence and self-esteem.
However she was missing yesterday morning when it was time to get milked. They found her on the meadows in great pain. She had a dislocated limb. “Obviously the other cows had bothered her again”, says Riebli. There was no other solution than to euthanize her.

Even a louder bell didn’t help in the end.
