Just being themselves....

This video is from Animal Place Sanctuary, a rescue and sanctuary organization. Their mission statement, in part, reads:
Founded in 1989, Animal Place fills a much-needed niche of farm animal rescue, sanctuary and adoption with its two facilities. The mission of Animal Place is to extend compassion to all life with a special emphasis on farmed animals.....
Nothing dramatic or anything in the video, just some innocent animals that in most circumstances would be facing a death sentence....because someone thought they could make a profit from them. The animal folks are just being themselves, about a minute into the video a pretty jersey cow gives out a moo. Take a look:

Some folks greatly enjoy human animal people watching, I greatly enjoy watching fur, feather and fin animal people. I especially like watching these because I know they are all in a safe place and are not being "useful", they are just being themselves. You can watch some Animal Place chickens, or other animals at their you tube channel.

The next video is one that I first encountered on Facebook. I shared it with a couple of folks I know that are involved in rescue operations and they both felt there was much truth (humorous and dismaying and frustrating) in the video.

Having worked for several decades in the human animal "helping" professions, I do know that human animals often approach others for assistance when it is too late to assist and after they have done little or nothing themselves to re-mediate the situation. The video indicates that if nothing else, we tend to be a consistent group of animals, whether problems involve our own lives or the lives of others.

Thanks Christina and dirtyduck for commenting. I also like seeing different kinds of animal folks together, and hearing them and experiencing their curiosity.
