National News // May 8, 2019

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.
