'How do we get consent?...', Netizens react to Cow Hug Day on Feb 14
Valentine's Day is celebrated on February 14 every year.
The Animal Welfare Board of India has appealed to people to celebrate ‘Cow Hug Day’ on February 14 to spread positive energy and encourage collective happiness, said officials on Wednesday. The board has issued a notice in this regard under the Department of Animal Husbandry and Dairying.
Another user commented, "Valentine's day celebrated at "Cow Hug Day" in our country....Hugging animals instead of humans. What thinking but can understand that poor cows also need affection. PS: whoever is planning on doing this act on the 14th Feb make sure the cow doesn't kick you. Just warning."
“Cow after listening #CowHugDay is trending…," one more wrote on the microblogging site while sharing the video of a cow.
“Terrified by the thought of our cowboys on the Cow Hug Day (Feb. 14)," a user added, while another wrote, “How do we get consent?"
“The world is going to be a much safer place for Indian women on Feb 14th with the Bhakt armies going to hug cows. One good move. Also you go cow!" another user appreciated the government's decision.
