As presented on CBC News, a dairy farm in Virginia is looking for volunteers to come cuddle all their baby goats. At first glance I thought “Awwwww.” But then it hit me like a ton of bricks… Why are there baby goats that need the affection of humans? Oh yeah, it’s because humans want to drink their moms breast milk instead and then turn it into cheese.
These babies unfortunately don’t get to live a normal life where they spend it with their mothers like nature intended. They need comfort from humans while their moms spend their lives in an enclosed space, where many don’t get to see the light of the day, and are hooked up to pumps for humans own pleasures.
