Sacred cows…should be everywhere?

I really like the sacred cows in India. Because they wander wherever they want, the docile look in their eyes starts to look more like wisdom. The also bring a lovely sense of chaos and the presence of nature into the cities – like a reminder that nature is always there and can not be ignored.

So it got me wondering, what if all nature was treated like sacred cows?

What would our cities look like if all animals and living things were left to do as they wish, and we drove/walked/worked around them all. What if, in Australia, the cultural expectation was that you were cursed if you hit and killed a bird or kangaroo….I wonder how would this change things, and should it be that way?

Perhaps this reverence for life will return once we start to realise how much our biodiversity is actually worth?
