As you can see from the link below, EU rules in Eire could result in any animals that accidently cross the border are going to be put down.
Is it not time the EU got its house in order and started getting real with the British people about the border and make compromises that are acceptable and workable instead of making a border in the Irish sea which is never going to happen.

When I saw the thread title I thought you were talking about Mary Lou.

The natural border is in the Irish sea. It is time the British, for the first time in history, done the right thing by the Irish and put it where it belongs.

a bit harder for senarios like cow wandering across border if border was placed in the irish sea.

You wouldn't be up to them moo cows. Mind you I suppose the calf will be qualified to play for the Republic at least in the next Euro qualifiers so there's always that.

Goalkeeper role I reckon. May grow into it.

When we build the wall,
the only one that will get across is the one that could jump over the moon.

But seriously issues like this will arise all the time so the EU are going to relax their rules and make allowances.

You could connect it up to Donald Trump's wall, across the atlantic to Greenland, over to the west coast and vancouver and then link up with the Trumpster's anti-wetback wall from Portland on down to run across north east of Tijuana.

Want some damp-coursing for the first stage,like. And loads of little crash helmets for the cod stocks to keep the environmentalists happy.

Sorry DOG, that's not how international law works.

This story gives us a very concrete example of why the border should be put in the Irish Sea. The impracticality of having the EU border where the Irish border is should be obvious given that there are farmers who have land on both sides of the border.

The op has unwittingly demonstrated why Brexit is such a ridiculous idea.

Before rushing to judgement on the fate of the cow we first need to know if she is a feminist.:roll:

Relax what rules and make what allowances?

The pregnant cow is still pregnant and is still alive- when Brexit delivers its sea border baby with England we can all celebrate by wetting that baby’s head-

Legally speaking they might be able to question the cow-foetus as well as pending future legislation it probably has all the rights of the pregnant cow.

Lads this could get serious. We could have an 'M' case on our hands. Someone alert the Sucream- erl 'Supreme Court'.
