A mother’s love is everlasting. In the animal kingdom, this testament also holds true, especially among cows. Bovines share incredibly strong relationships with their young. Calves stay with their mothers for two years, suckling five to eight times a day for the first few weeks. Mother cows have been known to fiercely protect their babies from ranchers and will cry out for weeks on end when their babies are taken away. That’s why it’s not surprising to see the mother cow in this video grieving for the loss of her poor calf, who was killed by a bus driver four years ago.
According to a post on Facebook, this heartbroken mother spends her days at the spot where her baby lost his life and has been following the driver ever since her calf’s death. It’s written that the bus owner even tried to change the color of the vehicle to stop her from escorting him, but that couldn’t fool her.
We can’t help but feel for this cow. Seeing the love she has for her calf inspires us to treat all animals with the respect and kindness they deserve. After all, it seems they’re not so different from us after all.
