Last Look at Indian Cattle

Only one more week to go before I leave India, so I’m taking a last look at the cattle of Bangalore. First, a close-up of a bullock looking tired after pulling a cart.

Then a calf, well-looked after by a family in a small village, petted by the village children, and protected by this cow house. Its only problem appears to be flies, but in the same village a cow was stolen recently, carried off in an autorickshaw.

Back in the city, this is what the well dressed bullock is wearing.

At least he had time to say goodbye to Distant Drumlin readers.

    He looks like a Latvian chick dressed him. Poor bugger. 😉

      Yes they’ve really thrown everything at him, haven’t they.

    Beautiful photos. But it looks like they pierced the bullock’s septum to put a rope through it. So they can literally lead him by the nose! I guess it’s not all wine and roses being a sacred cow.
