Another Close EnCOWnter at the Zoo

Nothing like a little cow-luring to brighten one's day.

DOOD! I read about this in a fictional book, but it was written by a science-chick, so I assumed it was correct. A guy's job was to check out the cows in X field (where those cows did not know him), so he hopped the fence, then lay down in the field, and, like you describe, cows stopped grazing and came on over. From that position he could count them and check their markings, etc. Lickety split, he's done.

I NEED TO DO THIS!! ('cept for the hopping the fence thing) K. So right now I am VOWING this is on my Summer Bucket List. Cow luring with camera. Thanks!!! =)

My pleasure! I was kind of astonished to discover how well it works. I should say, though, that there's no *guarantee* that the cow won't be too busy chewing cud or grazing or doing whatever else it is cows do to come over--but being low-lying does increase your chances. :)
