Moo Tube

MooTube: Along with activities like chomping grass, flicking flies, mooing and hanging out at the watering hole, the cow-cams capture such fun-loving antics as stealing snacks from the human production crew to roaming the fields in search of the best siesta spot. With spring in the air, alert viewers may catch a glimpse of cattle locking horns in the heat of pixilated romance. Press Release Here

Wow, neat.

Although it occurs to me that's a lot of cuddliness when they're just going to kill it.

Worked fine for me in Firefox. Great link, too. I have a deep regard for cows. Their simple lifestyle and delicious flesh give me hope and strength in equal measure. Thanks, thisisdrew.

Gary Larson said it best: nice animals, on and off the dinner table.

Looks to be playing endless loops to me. Also, it appears to be daytime in Texas even at 8PM PST. I always thought it sounded like a weird State.

jdg: are there actual remote cameras involved, or is it a few minutes of looping footage?

Assuming the cameras are mounted on the cows' foreheads, all three currently featured cows seem to have their sights focused intensely on the grass at their feet. What a pleasant life it must be. A field of grass is the cows' Baskin Robbins, after all. As I sit at work at the end of a twelve hour shift, I find myself envious.

Of course, I probably won't be killed and eaten in the immediate future. It's a toss-up.
