Injured baby calf’s mother refuses to leave his side

 In Blog, Hurt to Healed

We got a call on our helpline reporting an injured calf. When our ambulance reached we found the newborn baby lying listlessly with a crushed foot that had been run over by a bike or car and his mother standing close by. She panicked when she thought her baby was being taken away from her and began frantically pacing back and forth. But she didn’t need to worry because there was no way we were going to leave Mama behind, she was coming to Animal Aid too!

The bond between mother cows and their children is profound and universal and incredibly sweet. But mother cows and their babies are separated almost immediately after giving birth as a matter of course in the dairy and beef industry.

This video shares the story of rescue and healing but it also shares that precious bond that we have the power to protect. All we have to do to keep mothers and their babies together is to stop supporting their captivity, abuse and slaughter. Every time we eat meat or consume a dairy product we are sponsoring the heartbreak of animals who deserve to live and to love just like every mother and baby do.

Thank you for believing in street animal rescue and in the liberation of all animals, no matter their species.

    AAU staff are unique, if everyone of us also cared in some small way to help animals throughout our own lives, this world would be totally different place, and every one of us would feel a more complete human being for doing so.
