Officials warn against 'cow kissing' challenge

Authorities in Austria have warned social media users not to participate in this bizarre new fundraising craze.
As if dunking a bucket full of freezing water over your head wasn't strange enough, a Swiss app called 'Castl' has recently launched an even weirder fundraising stunt - the Cow Kiss Challenge.

Participants in Switzerland and other German-speaking countries have been tasked with snogging cattle "with or without tongues" to help raise money for charity.

Authorities however have branded the phenomenon a "dangerous nuisance" due to the potential for cows to become aggressive when approached, especially during calving season.

"Pastures and meadows are not petting zoos - actions like these could have serious consequences," said Austrian Agriculture Minister Elisabeth Koestinger.

Suffice to say, this is one social media craze you definitely don't want to be taking part in.

Yes, l would like to walk up to one of these people and shake their hand then ask them, is stupid your hobby or is it full time? I would find some mad cows and do a marathon with cash bonus, should reduce the human gene pool.

We need to "get a life" is all we can think of to do is make up challenges like this one.

I think that is awesome, Just to do something like that for charity is amazing in itself. Because I know most people here wouldnt even get near a cow let alone kiss it LOL. Congrats to those people.

Why not do something actually worthwhile for charity? Something that actually has a defined purpose aside from annoying animals. This whole cow kissing thing is just pointing out the exceptionally idiotic people from the norm and really shows how far society has fallen in some areas.  I mean seriously, it's just people wanting any kind of attention even if it labels them as not being particularly intelligent. Pitiful really.

Yes, we should leave the charity drives, to Footballers or Flat Earthers, they are the professionals.
