ABOUT ANIMALS AND BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 20 February 1903
ABOUT ANIMALS AND BIRDS. Animals follow their noses with unerring instinct. A. dog identifies his master by smelling him. A goat. picks her' kid from an inclosure of hundreds with, her nose.. After her separation . a cow is never satisfied with her calf until she has thorough ly smelled it; 'The feathered family are sb deficient as to smell and taste that they go'anywhere and cat any tlhing. Birds are seen contentedly brooding about slaughter-houses and sower discharges where the air is so contaminated that a horse would turn up its nose, draw its lips back Irom its teeth and groan. T'he birds eat unspeakable things.
