Everyone knows how playful our pet dogs can be, with parks around the world full of owners playing fetch with man’s best friend.

But most people don’t realise that farmyard animals take just as much joy in having fun and playing with humans as cats and dogs do.

One viral video is clear proof that cows love playing too. It shows an excitable cow bounding through a field after a ball, and bringing it back to its human friend.

The video has now been viewed 5 million times on YouTube, while it resurfaced on Reddit titled ‘What a happy cow’ this month, and has been upvoted 30 thousand times.

Videos such as this are vital in showing the world the truth about animals which many people view as meat.

They’re sentient, feel pain and have emotions, just like me, you, my dog and your cat.

“Cows are basically dogs,” the original poster commented on Reddit. “I want one,” another added.

And the video made some people rethink their lifestyles.

“I’m no vegan nor vegetarian, but whenever I watch these videos I just feel so hypocritical,” one viewer admitted.

“Man cows are cute, i think i’m going to stop eating meat…..” another added.

And, of course, a vegan was on hand to give some guidance.

Share this video to show the world that cows love to play, too!
