Street Cows

Since I grew up on a farm, it's been nice to see a cow or two on the street. From what I understand, Bangalore doesn't have nearly as many cattle as other cities and towns. But it still has enough to be noticeable, especially once you leave the busiest main streets. The cows are all tame -- a lot less inclined than I am to be spooked by the honking horns and crowds. And judging by their size and the size of the fertilizer they leave behind, most seem to get plenty to eat. I think they eat mainly garbage and scraps, although I did see a couple autorickshaw drivers putting some hay down for a couple.
