Ever wondered what happy cow really looks like? Um … this is it, folks! Check out this cow who is literally getting his dance on after being sprung from the meat industry. Who wouldn’t get down and bust a move?!

After being tethered in a narrow stable for most of his life, Bandit performs his freedom-dance showing his gratitude to his rescuers from Gut Aiderbichl Sanctuary (home to 500 rescued cows, bulls, and calves).

Measuring emotions in animals is very important because it helps us better understand them, their needs, and wants. As Bandit shows, a major need (and want) is run free and have the chance to get down and funky once in a while.

He was one of millions destined for life in a factory farm – but this video proves that with moo-ves like that, you never become accustomed to a life of being chained. So if you ever wondered what happy cow looks like (OK — a REALLY happy cow), Bandit is your guy. Go, Bandit! Go, Bandit!

How happy that cow looks! I\'ll never believe cows don\'t know or don\'t understand the sufferings and the death that await them.

Um, that\'s a bull, not a cow. At least I\'ve never seen a cow with such a mighty set of cojones. But what do I know, I\'m a city boy.

I\'m so happy for that cow that was rescued but what about his other friends who wanted to be free and go to a good, decent and caring Sanctuary like their cow friend went to. The video made me happy and sad of the other cows that didn\'t go along with their cow friend. I\'m sure it would have really made their day for freedom from the meat industry. GOD BLESS ALL ANIMALS!!!!

My thoughts exactly!!! Diane Armstrong, I also was wondering about all the other cows. I am hoping that they made this video of just the one cow to show us how excited they get, then they will release the others. God, I hope so.

Yes it does matter! Getting that wrong just makes the whole movement look stupid and devalues the message and the messenger.

There's a huge field that I pass going to and from work and sometimes the cows are out. I've seem the cutest calves following their mamas and juveniles playing and chasing each other around. They really are beautiful animals. It makes me sad because I know they're not beingkept as pets.
