Chinese Farmer Raises Calves on Balcony
Chinese Farmer Raises Calves on Balcony: A Chinese farmer, who had recently moved from a rural area to an urban apartment building in Sichuan Province, shocked his new neighbors by raising seven calves on his balcony. This was a surprising experience for the hundreds of people living in the complex, who woke up one morning to the sound of mooing and the smell of manure.
The farmer had brought the seven bovine calves, weighing between 10 and 20 kilograms, with him to raise as pets. However, many residents were annoyed by the constant mooing and foul smell, and reported the farmer to the authorities, resulting in the animals being forcefully removed from the apartment on their first day.
Videos of the calves on the balcony have been shared on Douyin, the Chinese version of TikTok, and while most reactions have been humorous, some users pointed out that many residents of this particular apartment complex had spent their whole lives in rural areas, where growing vegetables and raising animals is a way of life.
One person commented, “People there have spent their life living in the countryside, and were used to keeping poultry and planting vegetables in their yards.”
Interestingly, in January, some residents of the same apartment complex had complained about noisy chickens being raised in apartments, causing discomfort for their neighbors.
Local news outlets report that the farmer has repeatedly attempted to sneak the cattle back into his 5th-floor apartment, and as a result, property management and security guards are on high alert.
It seems unlikely that the farmer will be able to keep his calves in the apartment building, as the authorities have already forcefully removed them once and the property management and security guards are on high alert.
Additionally, it is not suitable or safe to raise livestock in urban apartment buildings, as it can pose health and safety risks to both the animals and the residents. The farmer may need to find a more appropriate location to raise his calves.
