Cows...yes cows...have the ability to remember, make decisions, and feel...emotionally...a mother milk cow chooses between her twin calves in order to try to keep one with her. This is an amazing account from a vet who has yet to be able to explain how a cow could be capable of this action...and yet, it was. Dairy comes from somewhere...keep in mind the LIVING cost to have butter/cheese/milk in your fridge. Another reason why I'm proud to be a vegan.
TOUCHING TALE) A dairy cow made the tough choice to hide one of her calves after giving birth to twins. As her fifth birth, the cow remembered her previous agony and knew that both of her babies would be taken away, unless she tried to save one. The intelligence and care displayed by this mothering cow is both heartbreaking and breathtaking. Read this touching tale, told by a veterinarian, about an amazing display of motherly love that proves animals love and feel. — Global Animal
World's Cutest Baby Wild Animals Credit: DreamstimeThough they are cuddly creatures when young, polar bear babies grow up to be ferocious predators. They are controversial zoo inhabitants, as many conservationists argue that it's unnatural to breed these violent bears in zoos, rather than in their natural habitat. However, that habitat is swiftly disappearing as the polar bear's home –the arctic ice – is diminishing rapidly due to climate change.
The wild population of bonobos, a promiscuous species of ape that shares more genes with humans than any other animal, is falling so dramatically that scientists have classified them as endangered. They live exclusively in the jungles of the Democratic Republic of Congo in central Africa. The problem stems from a combination of low fertility in the species, the animals being hunted for their meat and people stealing their babies to keep as pets.

The piglet is one day old and crippled. The mother had more babies than nipples to feed them. The farmer talked about putting this one out of its misery but decided to let some Swazi orphan children take care of it and feed it with a bottle instead. Now the little pig has grown big and strong! —Caption by Amanda Kopp
There's a paint horse farm near our home and each Spring, the little paints are born and it's wonderful to park and watch the interactions of the new moms and their babies....
Now that my English Bulldog is soon to be 4, I'm thinking it's time for another one. They're the biggest, most loveable babies on earth.

Couldn't decide if these little babies ought to go in animals or books. Sigh. Love this site www.zooborns.com/
