It's a well known pic among herbivory researchers. I edited the OP to use a bigger version I just located.

Veggies tend to have higher iq's so we know that since we don't eat beef we won't be having rabbit with the beef either :bounce:

"you see, the reason us Hare Krishnas don't eat chicken is because they've got egg in them." :D

22. From my experience with you, I'd say
your IQ is definitely in the high three digits range and probably higher than the average genius, if there is such a thing. Hey, billy. :hi: :hug:

23. No, it isn't
It's three digits, but not so high, I think. :hi:

5. I don't believe that.
Cows don't eat rabbits. Can you even imagine a cow chasing a rabbit? :rofl:

21. I knew that....
I have a Ph.D. in... science!

Mark Hunter at the University of Georgia uses that pic to start his seminars. He studies interactions between plants and herbivores.

16. I'm seeing a cow who adopted a rabbit and is carrying it by the...
scruff of the...ass... to a safe place.

Don't you dare tell me anything else!

18. What's to consider, exactly?
If the photo is real, what is the intent of the cow with that rabbit?

I don't get it.

20. the cow is actually eating the rabbit...
Edited on Sun Dec-17-06 12:02 AM by mike_c
...or at least chewing on it. Lots of large herbivores are facultative omnivores. The picture is real-- it's fairly well known among folks who do research on herbivory.

I've seen squirrels eat road kill as well.

BTW, I'm not really trying to make a point about vegetarianism-- it's just a cool pic that illustrates that even animals we think of as obligate vegans have a little wiggle room.
