Owl Rescue at Lost Creek Country Club

This video shows Craig Loving saving a Great Horned Owl near the 1st Tee Box. The owl had been sitting in that location all night and into the day, when two of our employees, Devin and Dora, realized the owl was caught on fishing line. No wildlife rescue professionals were available, so Craig saved the day. Lost Creek Country Club cares about Wildlife, and we are so thankful this owl was saved! Great job, Craig!

Cows Investigate A Turtle

Cows investigate a turtle

Posted by Life on Earth on Saturday, January 28, 2017

Cows are descended from as few as 80 animals that were domesticated from wild ox in the Near East some 10,500 years ago, according to a new genetic study.

Temperament and Emotions

Exploration – Shyness-boldness – Avoidance – Activity – Aggressiveness – Sociability

Fun Facts

Cows can learn to press a panel to open a gate for access to a food reward, and studies have shown that cows may react emotionally to their own learning improvement.

In scientific studies the ear postures of cows have been shown to be indicators of emotional state and overall animal welfare. Cows are not great at hiding stress… they unwilling communicate stress to the herd through substances excreted in their urine.

Cows negative emotional states are associated with:

  • Hot-iron disbudding (dehorning)
  • Postoperative dehorning pain in calves
  • Short-term isolation resulting in severe psychological stress causing an increase in vocalizations, heart rate, and plasma cortisol concentrations.
