Bovine friends forever
The border was no barrier for rescuers uniting two blind cows.
TWO blind, ageing cows were 350 miles (650km) apart, distressed and facing a dark future.
What happened next is a love story starring, not cows, but rescuers who worked across international borders for nearly a month to bring the bovines together.
It started when Sweety, an eightyear-old Canadian cow with a hoof infection, was rescued from the slaughterhouse by a horse sanctuary in Ontario.

Two blind cows: When the Farm Sanctuary shelter in New york, the united States, tried to help Tricia (left) who has been blind since birth, a Canadian animal welfare group sent Sweety over from Ontario, via special transport. They have since become best female friends and are inseparable.
