Farm Animals Vie for Attention

At an animal sanctuary in Chile, a pig, cow, dog and cat fight for a caretaker’s affection.

by Dani Yokhna

At Santuario Igualdad Interspecie, a Chilean animal sanctuary, the farm animals have developed a special bond with one of the caretakers, Ariel. Miguel the pig and Hope the cow sit down next to Ariel and vie for his attention, snuggling with him and practically sitting in his lap. Bella the dog seems to want in on the action, wagging her tail and playfully interrupting the interaction between Miguel, Hope and Ariel. The cow prevails, resting her head in Miguel’s lap. Aleli the cat tries to gain attention, as well, but quickly gives up. Perhaps she knows the pig and cow will win?
