Believe it or not, this Chinese beauty pageant is specifically for cows! However, female models in bikinis were brought in to add a human element to the event and also to give spectators something to look at.
On the way with my bike through the Defereggental (Defereggen-valley) to the "Staller Sattel", an Alpine pass from Eastern Tyrol, a part from Austria to Southern Tyrol, a part from Italy. But lot of kind of this "traffic" is common there... ;-)
The story took place in a supermarket in Puyallup, Washington. Shoppers were forced to let some place for the two cows that made a detour into the shop during their escape from an annual pre-rodeo cattle drive until a cowboy on a horse made them go out. Nobody was hurt but the cows made some damages in the shop. It must have been weird for the shop owners and for the clients to see cows coming calmly as if nothing was unusual…
It may seem strange, but tourists sunbathe on the beaches of Goa along with ... cows )) As cows are sacred animals, they have access to any beaches. Good informative photos, especially for those who wants to go there on vacation
