1/8 young people in the UK have never seen a cow

Quote:

One in eight young people in the UK have never seen a cow in real life, according to a survey.
While they may have spotted a cow on television, 12pc of 18 to 24-year-olds in the UK are so unfamiliar with the countryside they have never seen cattle in person. A fifth said they have never even left the city they live in (18pc).
The research also found a substantial lack of knowledge among young adults when it comes to basic fruit and vegetables.
More than half of those polled did not know strawberries are a summer fruit (54pc) and nine in ten do not know turnips are best grown in the winter.
Over half say it is more than a year since they climbed a tree (51pc), while for 29 per cent it is that long since they swam in a river.
Four in ten confess their knowledge of the countryside is 'poor' or 'extremely poor' (42pc).
Just two in ten believe their knowledge of the countryside is 'good' or 'excellent'.

Perhaps the apparent dismal results are soley due to the fact that they [and we all know who "they" are], when they do see a cow, they fail to recognize one for what they are.

It is inherently intuitively obvious that the UK needs an emergency level program for cows (and all the other barn yard animals) recognition program--something along the lines of the WWII enemy aircraft recognition program.

I would imagine they are also very confused about understanding the difference between a politician and a jackass, to include understanding that braying and a political speech is not one and the same thing, although that can be very difficult to notice the difference.

Thanks for that Jack, I always wondered how the cows got their pretty spots.
