This is a sad incident happened in Chennai, India. A cow scared of an injection and ran on the road, hit by a speeding vehicle and died, in spite of all the attempts by the Blue cross to save its life. The cruel part is the man who tried to give the injection was a milkman, who used “Oxytocin” to force the cow to produce more milk. (Read more below) May the soul rest in peace!
The Blue Cross of India performs numerous rescues on a daily basis, but sometimes, we come across stories that seem to punch us in the gut and face the shocking truth of humanity’s inhumanity towards other sentient beings. This is one such story:
On the 10th of February 2014, a lady walking on Marina beach called the BCI, stating that a cow had collapsed from her injuries in a accident, and was oozing copious quantities of milk and moaning constantly, obviously in great pain.
One young cricketer on the beach informed us that a milkman came in the morning and poked the cow with an injection. He was about to poke the next cow when the cow in the picture was hit by a speeding car, on the head. The cow fell down, before dragging herself to the pavement and collapsing there.
The injection that had been given was oxytocin, used in the dairy industry to force cows to produce massive amounts of milk; far beyond what their bodies are designed by nature to produce. This, when given by an unskilled and untrained person, as was the case in this matter, can be extremely dangerous to the health and well-being of the person injected.
Milk really was oozing from all her nipples, but the owner of the cow, the charlatan who had injected her in so unskilled a manner, had escaped from the scene. The cow herself had obviously received a debilitating blow to her head as her nose was bleeding quite hard and she seemed to be concussed. She died soon after she was rescued, but the milk from her nipples continued to ooze out for over an hour afterwards.
The very simple fact of the matter is that when we, as consumers, provide a demand for milk and dairy, unscrupulous business people will do their utmost to exploit whatever means necessary to cater to that demand, which includes cruelly poisoning animals in order to force their bodies to go beyond the limits of nature. The only way to prevent such heinous barbarism is to boycott the products such scoundrels sell.
