there's a difference between british cows and canadian cows.
british cows think that cows are people. or possibly that people are cows.
public footpaths run through their fields and they hardly notice their two-footed visitors anymore. you can walk right up and pet them on the nose. they don't mind.
canadian cows don't see people very often. especially in the backwoods. they huddle together to discuss your potential danger or edibility.
then they walk right up and pet you on the nose.
