The desperation that a pregnant woman goes through when she sees that the time has come to give birth in unfavorable conditions, is indescribable. That happens to every mother, even a vulnerable cow.
A society that respects life, regardless of the species to which it belongs, will by far be a civilized society. That’s why we’re happy to know that in many parts of the world people are able to do their best to save creatures in need.
On this occasion the citizens of Valparaiso in Chile demonstrated their humanity by helping a poor mother who was having a complicated birth in the middle of the road.
The protagonist of this story is a beautiful cow who was
It turns out that when nature calls nothing can stop it and this was what happened to the bovid that had to lie on the asphalt to bring its calf into the world.
The incident took place specifically in the central bandejón of Baden Powell Street, in the sector of El Bello, in Quilpué.
After enduring the pains on the sidewalk, he threw himself into the street.
Upon seeing the scene, the strangers began to approach and reported it to the authorities. A group of officers appeared to organize road traffic and avoid any kind of accident, in addition, two veterinarians also intervened to help.
Together they finally got the cow to give birth.
But the matter did not end with the birth, because after this it was necessary to support the cow that was extremely upset by the situation. The lights of the vehicles and the uproar from the traffic around increased their stress.
However, veterinarians remained with her at all times and managed to reassure her, while officers continued to monitor the scene.
A joint work that gave the best results.
Although the matter went well, we must not stop thinking about how dangerous that unexpected moment was for the Bovida and for the citizens. In addition, the cow was not alone, but other quadrupeds came to accompany her at that special moment.
As surreal as the matter sounds, it seems that the animals understood everything that was happening very well.
The whole family arrived to accompany her in the birth.
This unexpected moment captured everyone’s attention and Deputy Diego Ibáñez did not hold back his opinion on the matter.
«Here there is also a problem of responsible management of small cattle, which we know has always existed in Quilpué. But already with the growth of the city, of automobiles, it is unsustainable. Danger to vaquitas and passers-by. We will be monitoring,» the politician said.
The owner of the cow could be fined for this situation and, although everything went well with the mother and her calf, perhaps the sanction will serve as a lesson to other farmers in the area. Humans are responsible for their pets and other creatures in their care, so they must not only ensure their food but their protection.
We hope that from now on the poor cow will not have to face such a situation, these innocent animals deserve to bring their young into the world in tranquility and not under the stress and carelessness of their managers.
We are glad that this mommy was finally able to give birth without complications in a case where it was shown that union is strength. Luckily even her family came to support her.
