Cow dies after eating drinks can
A farmer in canton Fribourg is appealing to motorists not to throw rubbish from their cars after a 9-year-old dairy cow died after eating an aluminum drink can.
The can had already been torn apart by a haymaking machine and the cow ate the splinters.
The farmer says the vet tried everything to save Dola – but nothing worked and the cow continued to lose weight. It was eventually euthanized.
A post-mortem found the metal in the stomach.
