Perhaps they are a larger specie of lemming that just happens to resemble a cow. Lemming suicide = complete myth, mostly created with the film White Wilderness. Everyone thank Disney.

OMGness, thats just like the South Park episode. LOL If you live near a cliff, complacentcy or fear will eventually get the better of you.

It could be parasites. There are many 'mind controlling' parasites that get inside other living creatures and force them to do things, including kill themselves. Like there is a parasite that gets inside grasshoppers and then makes the grasshopper go to water and drown itself, so maybe these cows are infected with parasites?!!?

It's a conspiracy perpetrated by the federal government to hide the truth about extra terrestrials.

Lemming suicide = complete myth, mostly created with the film White Wilderness. Everyone thank Disney. the lemming suicide isn't a complete myth. lemmings won't follow one another over a cliff. but when it is time to spread out for more room some have been known to actually run off cliffs or into the ocean

Though I suppose to humans we can look at said body of water and estimate our chance of making it. Which would make swimming across some seem like suicide.

Which would make swimming across some seem like suicide. as i said it isn't a complete myth. as with most myths it is based on truth.

I think most people just doesn't realise how stressful it is being a cow.
