The earth is one, we are all part of the one. The one is becoming sick and needs to change. We all feel it.

I do feel, and experience what you speak of. I also agree on the point of oneness..
However, I do not believe that's what is responsible for some cows getting spooked by a thunderstorm and possibly falling off a cliff.

you would think that by the 6th or so cow the farmer would invest in a Fence...

This happened in the space of a three day period though. I too would have not made a connection except it is happening with too many different animals and due to the fact that these cows did not do this all at once.

Something is not quite right.

Are these cows of the Lemming Cow family? Maybe there were some people that drove these cows off the cliffs so they could then harvest the meat and bones and skins, like my ancestors did?

Maybe Walt Disney drove the cows off a cliff for a movie? Or maybe they tossed them off the cliff and over the camera to get better shots.

These cows were probably bunched up in a group as cows do in the rain when a thunderbolt struck, they all stampeded in the wrong direction where there was a cliff. Typical unfortunate cow behavior.

I've seen this happen. I used to work as a vet in SE Minnesota where there were cliffs and deep ravines. I was asked to do autopsies on 3 cows lying dead at the bottom of a cliff. The cows had broken legs and bones. There had been a violent thunderstorm the night before so the cows probably stampeded and ran off the cliff en mass.

The farmer was hoping I would find evidence of lightning strike so he could file for insurance. None was found. Cows can't survive a a 50 ft. dive onto solid ground!

The article didn't mention anything about a veterinarian doing autopsies but that would have been helpful rather than just guessing about the cause. Looked like 10 or 12 Jersey cows to me.

My suspicion is that these animals are being driven over the cliffs by the two legged variety for the lulz.

My first reaction to this story was that maybe the herd was attacked/stalked by, wolf, bear...who knows.

A smart hunter would back their prey into a place they cannot escape from.

Unfortunately it was a cliff, and the "meal" was a little out of reach after they all took a tumble.

I certainly don't think this is a mass suicide but something a little more (very) down to earth.

I wonder if it was an insurance job by another skint farmer?

Could it be some drunk english cowboys cliff tipping the cows? Good sport, and a good mystery to boot. Sounds like the plausible explanation to me.

what's the farmers deal?

why hasn't he put a giant trampoline under the cliff yet?

see farmer brown is like... well that saves me 500 man hours of slaughter...

we see what you did there farmer brown.

Interesting to see the different responses comparing Switzerland to the US. After 10 days the cows in the American incident are still on the ground rotting while people try and decide who's responsible to clean them up.

I can imagine stuff like this happens from time to time, but why would it continue for three days? Thats the part that needs answering.

Neither storms nor predators would be at it that long.

Life imitating art, you are exactly right, and I was hoping someone else would notice this.

This is from the Wikipedia page on the South Park episode called Cow Days:

"Meanwhile, all the cows in the town discover the festival's symbol, a giant cow-shaped clock which moos every hour, and carry it off to start their own cult, where they begin to worship it as a god. The visitors from the game show are accused of stealing the cows and the clock and are thrown in jail.

The leaders of the town find the cows and confront them, telling them to go back to their proper places in society. Instead, the cows commit mass suicide in a cult-like fashion; powerless to stop them, the people of the town mourn the cows' sad action."

Keep in mind that these cows also killed themselves by throwing themselves off a cliff. Very strange. I wonder where Matt and Trey got the idea for the episode? Perhaps they hold the key to this riddle.

If it was either predators or storms this would be happening more often long term than this. This is new and unique and something is amiss.

My suspicion is that lightning had found a place near the cow that it was attracted to. The resulting shock sent the cows running. or maybe it was some cow-tipping fairies?

That would be my immediate suspicion as well. I've been around cattle much of my life. They're stupid, but not stupid enough to go cliff diving of their own accord. They all landed in the same pile, which tells me they probably weren't running, as if frightened by a very close lightning strike (they usually aren't too frightened by thunderstorms themselves). A strike that close probably would've left some evidence in the form of a dead cow or three at the top of the cliff, anyway.

My guess? Someone walked them off that cliff by walking them closer and closer to the edge until they lost their footing or were pushed over. Wouldn't be that hard to do.

Maybe you should really consider this website:
Its in french, the owner is from canada. I can assure u that he figured out what is going on. He can predict earthquake and "suicidal, criminal" waves. In short, it comes from something everywhere in universe called "ether" or "astroether".

This story reminds me of this:

Maybe people or some predators are chasing these cows. I'd find it hard to believe that the cows would just wander off a cliff unless they were in serious danger or had their perceptions altered somehow. (hallucinogenic plants, brain damage, blindness/darkness, etc)

You'd think they could just set up a video camera and catch the next time this happens. Then they'd know if it was thunderstorms or predators or some punk kids having 'fun' chasing the cows off the cliff, or whatever it is that's happening.

Deeply misinformed. Bovines exhibit all characteristics of intelligence, feeling and sensitivity. Studies on the subject are amazing.

If people only knew the intelligence of cows, they wouldn't be eating them, they would be asking them where are key spots on earth for good overall health and vitality.

I eat meat but I have encountered otherworldy intelligence in them, awareness through telepathy. They are just like us.

Except they feel somewhat superior by knowing the enviroments around them.

Maybe they fed them Rye grain, and it was infected with ergot, *snip* they could fly.
Would not be first time of ergot posioning.
