Old and sick animals….I am not curios to see. But we had guests and Shirley really wanted to visit this place. Well we all had our concerns about animals and hospital, blood imagination and  painful screams in white tiled halls. A bit scary.

It turned out to be different. This hospital is more an old folks home and keeps mostly male cows which are not wanted in India because they do not provide anything for daily needs. The animals are keep in open enclosures freely. The female cows are in stalls and provide milk for commercial use. A lot of young male cows running around searching for a glimpse of milk. But as soon as they had a nip on a cow they get chased away still hungry. This is very sad.

It doesn’t really sound like sightseeing but it is one of our best memories in Mysore.
