Cows Get Photo IDs in India
You can't make this stuff up.
Authorities say crime syndicates find it easy to tamper with branding or tattooing of the cattle -- hence the idea for photo identity cards which should be difficult to falsify.
Valid for two years, each laminated cattle ID card displays the picture of the animal and its owner. It also carries vital information about the animal, such as its colour, height, sex and length of horns.
It carries the owner's name and address and sometimes other details about the animal -- like one "horn missing" or "half tail lost".
Does anyone really think this will improve security?
