Now that winter has officially started and temperatures are dropping, we all must remember to take extra precautions when it comes to letting our animal companions outside. As with humans, extreme weather can harm animals, and adequate shelter must be provided for them at all times.

Unfortunately, a farmer in Torbay, Newfoundland does not believe animals should be given shelter during extreme weather, as numerous people have seen a cow at the farm tied to a short rope outside during a blizzard. Covered in a thick layer of snow and freezing, the poor cow had no choice but to endure the icy temperatures. Authorities were contacted, but they did nothing to help the cow. Several complaints about the farmer have previously been made, including reports of neglect of three horses, one of whom died.

A petition has been set up on Care2 to demand justice and remove the cow to adequate shelter, charge the farmer with animal neglect, and prevent him from having animals in the future. Please take a moment to sign the petition here.

Animals in freezing temperatures can be a very dangerous thing, leading to frostbite, loss of limbs, or even death. For winter safety tips for keeping your animal companions warm and out of harm’s way, read this. And for ideas on how to keep your animals happy indoors during the winter months, check this out.

And please remember to share this with your friends and family as a reminder to keep animals safe and out of the cold this season!

As a rancher’s daughter, there is no excuse. Good ranchers put in loafing sheds or dense tree stands. Cattle are tough but I’ve seen rotten frostbit ears on many.... people are lazy...

It's a 2500lbs animal as long as it has enough food to eat and water to drink he'll be just fine. An animal that size creates so much heat, it's not cold. Please educate yourselves people.

This world doesn't have enough 'humane' beings'. My heart aches for the poor creatures who fall prey to the inhumanity. I pray for the very same inhumanity to be suffered by those who inflict it!

Are you serious? God has prepared his animals very well to live in the elements...

He didn't prepare mankind to live in the elements. Luckily mankind had the freedom to protect himself. This animal in the photo doesn't have that freedom. Show some mercy.

If god would had wanted a cow to stand a blizzard, god would had put cows to the arctis and north pole! ---- This animal is not in its element. It has to stand 4 different seasons. Cows are also not born into heat areas like here in Australia.

Nature is truly marvelous! And these animals are perfectly capable of existing in all four seasons in almost all regions of the world. God has a beautiful way of preparing the animals for the different seasons. I will never excuse abuse to animal or human but standing or sleeping out in the snow or elements is very natural and healthy. Nature has a way of weeding out the sick and old so that the strong survive and can breed and carry-on. Nature was here long before any of us and it will be here long after..... ❤️

Brenda Doneth. Nature is not truly marvellous in a positive way, nature is damn well cruel most of the time and no true God would have created such a system.

Susan Kulka It appears you are much smarter than the creator and much smarter than all the people that actually own and breed these animals.... i'm sure they'll be contacting you soon for your advice.....

Brenda Doneth These cows are bred... original they are from the middle east as far as I know. But anyway. When humans breed animals, they should take care of them and not leave them in a blizzard. The modern breed is not that capable of seasons like their wild parts. And when you look at africa, there are plenty of ox herds... related to the new age cow,... and they do not have to go through snow and the cold. Anyway ...

Brenda Doneth And the once who breed animals, ... hm,... are also smarter than god! Why otherwise would they overtake his job! Specially the once who experience in a lab! And each cow, pig or whatever animal was bred by human hand ... what do you think god feels about, when his children get pregnant again and again, the un-natural way? Beeing forced with the sperm from a bull they didn't choose (like they would in nature) and injected by either locked into a crate they can't escape from the bull, or, by human hand! Talking about god ... do you really think god created it this way? NO he didn't. God made everything perfect. Even human kind ... until the day they choose to do evil things. What humans do ... is playing god! And I think this is exactly, where Susan for sure is smarter than any breeder!
