Blog Guelph: Wading Cow


Wading Cow, originally uploaded by corbeau_du_nord.

Thanks to the prominence of the University of Guelph and its focus on agricultural studies, Guelph is sometimes referred to as Cow town.

Here we have a Guelph area cow skinny-dipping in a stream. As the photographer corbeau du nord points out in their notes on this photos Flickr homepage, cows wading in streams may seem quaint but in fact are nasty polluting machines. When they've 'gotta go, go they do'. Upstream folks do not suffer the consequence. But the downstream crowds get an unfortunate reduction in water quality.

I trust you get the picture.
