More cows on the Tube

An orange herd of cows invaded the London Underground a few days ago. It was to bring attention to '
Not In My Cuppa' a campaign by the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) against the establishment of a 'battery farm' for cows by Nocton Dairies in Nocton, Lincolnshire

This 'battery farm' would be the first of its kind in the UK, with over 8,000 Holstein cows being cooped up in tiny enclosures 24/7 for at least ten months of the year. Compare this to normal herds with just over 100 cows free to roam the fields. The Londoneer has more on this in his blog post.

Cows seem to be getting a raw deal at the moment if their number of Tube protests is anything to go by. Let me know if you spot any other strange animals on the underground.
