This is the unimportant story of an unimportant cow and her unimportant baby.
This cow, who cared about no one, once gave birth to a baby that didn’t seem much more interesting.
What was of interest was the poor cow’s milk, because it brings profit – “white gold”, so to speak.
But to do this, the unimportant calf had to get away from its unimportant mother.
Men came and dragged the unimportant baby from its unimportant mother onto a truck.
The unimportant cow reacted like any mother by trying to save her beloved child.
She screamed like mad with grief and suffering, tried to get to her unimportant child, but the men denied her this wish and prevented her from doing it.
The truck with the unimportant baby animal onboard started relentlessly and started moving.
The unimportant mother cow instinctively ran after the truck.
(This video is chosen symbolically and does not depict the death of the cow in Italy)
The distance between the unimportant animal and its unimportant offspring grew larger, but she ran, and ran, and ran with pain and profound despair.
She ran, and ran, and ran as fast as she could.
But then the unimportant cow lost her strength.
They could no longer carry their legs.
She collapsed helplessly, her strong mother-heart was at the end and failed any further heartbeat of the unimportant cow.
Life slowly but surely escaped the unimportant body of the unimportant mother while her unimportant child drove away in fear, panic, and cries for help.
The unimportant cow died of heart failure.
Soon the ruthless men would come back and remove the unimportant cow from the side of the road.
And no one will ever remember this unimportant story of an unimportant cow and her unimportant baby, for this is the fate of innumerable animals whose lives, in view of the beckoning profit, mean nothing to many wicked men and women.
But is this story that happened in Italy really unimportant?
Does the life of a living thing really not matter just because it was born in the body of a species exploited by mankind?
Is the world really so cold and dull that the fate of the two of them and that of billions of other pain-sensitive creatures is nothing but unimportant and does all of this leave us cold?
She doesn’t leave me indifferent.
Their lives are just as precious as those of any other species.
Their fate is just as tragic as that of all other animals in the world that are exploited, abused, tortured, and killed by society.
Nothing gives a person the right to categorize the life of these tortured animal souls as unimportant, absolutely nothing.
For me, this mother and her child is not something, but SOMEONE whose story touches me.
It is in our hands that such unimportant stories gain weight and initiate a global rethink.
And for this initiation, I want to be the catalyst.
If you think the same way, then I ask you to share this “unimportant” story of the “unimportant” cow and her “unimportant” baby, because the poor animal and all those who met and unfortunately will, have met the same fate it deserves their story to go around the world.
Rest in peace, important cow, and rest in peace for all you animal souls, exploited and murdered by humans

And I mean… A New Zealand animal welfare organization posted this video on their Facebook page with a comment: “There are millions of reasons to go without milk. Here is one of them”.
To see this as a reason, one has to evaluate animals as individuals and not as things.
With the right to their freedom, life, happiness.
If, after a long period of blindness and denial, you have managed to turn your back on this fascist system and eat and live vegan, then it is barely tolerable to endure the suffering of animals, and even more tolerable is the fact that the most people don’t even give a shit about this suffering.
My best regards to all, Venus
