Cow couer

Written by Kenny Ausubel

Convincing courts is a far cry from convincing animals.  Cows put into fields of genetically modified (GM) corn stubble wouldn't touch the stuff.  One farmer said his cows just waltzed right the large fields f Monsanto's Roundup Ready corn to break through a fence to eat some good old conventional corn.  An Iowa farmer swore that rabbits, squirrels, and mice won't go near GM corn even when he left it in an open barn in the barn.  Ravenously omnivorous raccoons gave the cold shoulder to warm fields of GM corn and trucked down the road a piece to feast on that premium-priced organic corn.  Maybe animal testing isn't such a bad ideal after all.
