    Less interesting for the beaver interaction, than for the YT related videos, all the cattle fascinated with accordion polka, dixie jazz, and trombone renditions of Lorde’s “Royals”. And then the elephants swaying to Beethoven.

    We mammals all value some novelty. Its how our ancestors tried new food sources, migrated to better environs, or found mates. Its unfortunate (and morally, criminal) that modern animal agriculture views animals as machines or process reactors to turn plants into more profitable human foods, without regard for the animal’s experience.

    It’s probably possible to offer animals used tor food engaging if short lives, even in industrial settings. Mozart piped into the feedlots. That won’t change the purchasing decisions of those that believe sentient creatures, and their desire to freely explore their world, merit consideration, but it will salve the conscience of the folks buying “free-range” eggs, etc. This is why presenting the health and environmental arguments for eliminating (or reducing) animal consumption, as Bix does, is so important.

      I like how you said this:

      “… modern animal agriculture views animals as machines or process reactors to turn plants into more profitable human foods.”

    The cows’ curiosity was something else, also how they acted in unison. It wasn’t just one or two, it was a herd mentality. I mean, the ones in the back probably didn’t even know there was a beaver there.
