Mother cows are pregnant for nine months before giving birth. After their baby is born, their baby is taken from her. EVERY baby this Mother cow will ever have, will be taken from her.
With a simple change in lifestyle, you can take a stand against #animalcruelty, help the #environment, and feel the #healthbenefits#tellitlikeitreallyis this #FebruDairy— #Herbiⓥore 🌱 (@herbivore_club) February 21, 2018

Cows would naturally suckle their calves for 9-12 months, dairy calves are taken away from their mothers almost immediately. Healthy young calves are very energetic and love to play and socialise with other calves.#tellitlikeitis this #FebruDairy pic.twitter.com/llIQfhHshK— #Herbiⓥore 🌱 (@herbivore_club) February 19, 2018
#Februdairy fact: once a cow has given birth, she and her calf are immediately separated so we can have all her milk. She reacts as any mother would: trying to get her baby back, grieving, lashing out. Cows and calves have been known to cry for weeks. pic.twitter.com/4HfI497U02— #Herbiⓥore 🌱 (@herbivore_club) February 18, 2018
Tail docking is a mutilation performed daily at dairy factory farms. Inflicted without anesthesia and under filthy conditions, this cruel act often results in infection. pic.twitter.com/NNyyKVEwMl— Mercy For Animals (@MercyForAnimals) February 21, 2018

On the slaughter line, watching, hearing & smelling what's happening ahead. Dairy kills calves. Reach across the grocery isle & choose delicious #vegan & dairy alternatives instead of putting babies through this.

The following video reveals that Mother cows want to protect their calves from dairy farmers, because they know what will happen next. The Mother cow knows the farmer will take her baby away (like every previous baby she has had). Cows are not "dumb" animals; they love their babies and are trying to save them.
"Can any dairy farmers explain this video? I thought dairy cows lacked maternal instincts and didn't care about their calves, so what would be the need to warn farmers about the safety risks of interfering with newborns?"- @Jabronisout#Februdairy pic.twitter.com/SsN0COpDPl— #Herbiⓥore 🌱 (@herbivore_club) February 24, 2018
Cows have to be pregnant to produce #milk. Calves are considered waste products to the #dairy industry. They suckle their tongues or try to suckle the fingers of slaughterhouse workers before being murdered. #ThingsPeopleShouldKnow #DitchDairy #Govegan pic.twitter.com/4qUkyscYNu— FARM Animal Rights (@FARMUSA) February 26, 2018
Beware very graphic dairy video below.
GRAPHIC: Male calves are the hidden victims of the meat and dairy industry. Taken from their mothers, and slaughtered for veal at just a few months old. 💔 pic.twitter.com/nPKzuEPjfb— The Humane League (@TheHumaneLeague) February 25, 2018

The dairy industry will say cows & calves are indifferent to each other as their business depends on separating them. It's distressing for both mother & baby.#Februdairy #ShoutAboutDairy pic.twitter.com/ZcvJQLQRjM
John Webster, Emeritus professor of animal husbandry at Bristol University’s Clinical Veterinary Science Department, considered the world’s leading authority on dairy cows, states that the removal of her calf is the single worst incident in the life of a dairy cow. #Februdairy pic.twitter.com/OlnHry6ljm— Rebecca Ⓥ🔻 (@Beccaasauruss) February 27, 2018

(Personally I love the old and new versions and cannot wait to check out the new film!)

In this thought-provoking documentary, see how octopuses behave in the wild and how they deal with abstract concepts and challenges.
"The octopus uses cognitive reasoning to make deductions and understand its environment. It can shape shift, change colour and texture on the fly to blend in with its surroundings to become either predator or defend itself from becoming prey.
In one experiment we see an octopus wrap its tentacles around a screw-top jar that has a crab inside it. In slow but determined fashion, the octopus successfully opens the jar to get to its prey. The jar is unlike anything it would encounter in the wild - the octopus has used cognitive reasoning, not instinct, to catch its well-deserved lunch.
The octopus has lived side-by-side with humankind from our earliest days. But it's only now that we're beginning to unravel the animal's secrets, and the extent of its formidable brain-power.
Watch as an octopus slips out of its tank and slithers casually across a concrete floor. Is it making a break for freedom? Not at all. It knows that its prey is just a short distance away in another tank.
As we learn, the octopus can move on land as well as underwater and the little round trip it has taken is not just to get from point A to point B. It's also taking this little detour because it's curious about the world it is living in.
It's hard to believe that this animal is simply a mollusk. As far as his family tree goes, the octopus is more closely related to an oyster or a snail than to any other species of animal.
And yet, as octopuses behave like shape shifters, moving in and out of tiny openings to get their reward, they are working out solutions the way humans do.
Amazingly, with all its high intellect and amazing traits, the octopus has never become king of the sea. Researchers think that it's because of the female's short life span. They give up everything, including their life, for their eggs.
Just how has an animal that is so different from humans become so intelligent?"
From Spain to Vancouver Island and finally to Capri, Italy, follow scientists as they try to understand how the octopus has evolved to have such intelligence, even by our standards.
