The tears are real.
While we normally think of cows as food, not as individuals, cows are actually extremely emotional creatures. They have special bonds with their families, especially their children.
Emma The Cow was being taken away in a trailer. She noticed that when this normally happened to her friends, they were taken to be slaughtered.
While she was in the trailer, she became terrified and started crying.
In an unexpected turn of events, Emma was released into a pasture of other cows, who welcomed her with a warm embrace. The people at Kuhrettung farm animal sanctuary in Germany took it upon themselves to help Emma get a happy ending.
Emma has never lived with a herd before, so it will take some getting used to, but for the most part, she seems extremely happy and we don't think she will shed more tears anytime soon.
