A civilized society values life, regardless of the species to which it belongs. As a result, we are relieved to hear that in many parts of the world, people are willing to go to any length to help animals in distress.
On this day, the people of Valparaso, Chile, demonstrated compassion by assisting a poor woman who was giving birth on the side of the road.
Nothing can stop nature from calling, as the bovid discovered when it had to lie down on the asphalt to deliver its young. The event took place in Quilpué’s El Bello neighborhood, on the middle bandejón of Baden Powell street.
After witnessing the situation, strangers began approaching and reporting to authorities. A number of cops appeared to manage traffic and avoid any collisions; two veterans also intervened to help. Working together, they were able to coax the cow into giving birth.
The crisis, however, did not end with the birth because it was necessary to console the cow who was distressed by the occurrence. The commotion of the surrounding traffic, as well as the headlights of the cars, added to her anxiety.
However, the vets stayed with her at all times and were able to calm her down, while the cops kept an eye on the situation.
Despite how strange the situation appears to be, the animals appear to understand what was going on. This unexpected occurrence piqued everyone’s interest, and Congressman Diego Ibáez did not hold back his thoughts.
“Then there’s the issue of proper cattle management, which we know has always existed in Quilpué.” However, with the rise of cities and automobiles, it is already unsustainable. Vaquitas and bystanders are in danger. “We’ll keep an eye on everything,” the legislator said.
While the mother and her calf were unharmed, the punishment could serve as a warning to other farmers in the area. Humans are responsible for their pets and other creatures in their care, so they must not only feed them but also protect them.
