Pregnant Cow Sparked A Two-Day Rescue Operation After Falling Off A Cliff.

Cows seem pretty docile and content, grazing the fields. In reality, these animals have complex emotions that go beyond eating and lying around all day long. Krista McLennan studied cows for her PhD at Northampton University in England. She discovered cows are actually quite social creatures who bond with others and become visibly stressed when they are separated from their friends.

One cow in Polzeath in Cornwall, England must have had a rough day at the farm when she wondered off and found herself in a lot of trouble.

A pregnant cow got too close to a cliff when she fell over 100 feet down.

The animal was part of a herd near the cliff but wandered off from the group. It is believed she lost her footing at one point, resulting in the fall.
