News.com Australia is reporting this:

«ONCE they were a byword for mindless docility. But cows have a complex mental life in which they bear grudges, nurture friendships and become excited by intellectual challenges, researchers have found.

Cows are capable of strong emotions such as pain, fear and even anxiety about the future. But if farmers provide the right conditions, they can also feel great happiness.»

Next time you pass by a field of cows, bare in mind that they are dreaming of tipping you.
