If animals could talk, a few cows in Burlington County might ask state legislators to hurry up and outlaw bestiality. During a bizarre hearing there yesterday, a Superior Court judge dismissed animal-cruelty charges against a Moorestown police officer accused of sticking his penis into the mouths of five calves in rural Southampton in 2006, claiming a grand jury couldn't infer whether the cows had been "tormented" or "puzzled" by the situation or...

The Michael Vick dogfighting case, and all of the attention on dogfighting and its attendant practices, show one thing very clearly: As a society, we have no idea what we think about animals. We don't know how much we ought to take them into account, morally. We don't even know how to figure it out. I watched cable news recently, and almost every anchor interviewed an official of the Humane Society, and all expressed horror, especially that Vick's indictment had accused him and acquaintances of executing dogs in ways apparently designed to be as cruel as possible: drowning, strangling, electrocution.

Under a crisp March sky in the western portion of Lancaster County, where fertile fields awaited spring planting, a group of farmers gathered in a huge barn to wage a war on worldwide starvation. They did it by buying cows. "We never know how many we're going to buy," said David King, a Cochranville farmer who attended a cattle auction with his son, Marvin. "It depends on the price and the mood of the buyers. You play it by ear. If you've got the space, now is the time to buy. " The price and the mood were right for the Kings, who spent $9,300 on 13 cows at the 10th annual World Relief Heifer Sale at Melvin Kolb's Sale Barn in Lancaster this month.

The Academy of Natural Sciences is, you could say, cow-towing to bovines in a celebration titled "COWS! Fact & Fancy," beginning next Saturday. There'll be live cows, fossilized cows, cow tales, cow photos, cow videos, a milking machine, a walk-through model of a cow's stomach and more. Opening-weekend festivities will include demonstations of ice-cream making and butter making, and appearances by dairy princesses. The bovine bonanza will be capped by a Cow Roundup Festival, Nov. 18 and 19. The exhibit will run through Jan. 15. Events are free after paying the museum's admission fee. The Academy of Natural Sciences is at 19th Street and the Parkway.

Gateway Inc., the personal-computer company that is recalling one million little rubber cows that promote its corporate logo, said yesterday that other companies should withdraw similar advertising items to avoid harming children. "We bought these little cows off the shelf, and just added our corporate name," said John W. Spelich, director of corporate communications. "We are urging the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to track down [similar products] before someone gets hurt.

Disaster nearly struck a herd of about 100 cows Thursday after the wooden roof of a Richland Township barn collapsed under the weight of snow, according to officials. Luckily, the bovine escaped unharmed, said Keith Schroy, Richland Township Fire and Rescue Chief. He said all the animals had been moved to a second barn on the property by the time his crew arrived at around 1 p.m. No humans were injured, either, Schroy said. "It was fairly basic," he said, adding that the two barns were relatively close together, thus limiting the length of the impromptu cow migration.

Arsenic poisoning from an unknown source caused the deaths last week of 30 Angus cows on a Gloucester County farm, officials from the New Jersey Department of Agriculture said yesterday. State and county officials have been investigating the mysterious deaths of the cows, which died between March 22 and March 26 on a West Deptford Township farm operated by John F. Marple Jr.; his father, John Sr., and his brother. "The cause of death was arsenic toxicity, but the source has not been identified," said Dr. Janice Nicol of the Agriculture Department's Division of Animal Health.

While their cows napped and munched the afternoon away, eight teenagers from Montgomery County spent several hours last week stringing up green-and- white banners across their cows' stables at the Pennsylvania Farm Show. The students also draped wide strips of green satin with ornately penned nameplates over each cow's head. The nameplates introduced visitors to 11 dairy cows with names such as Lollipop, Primrose and Nutmeg. This year, unlike in previous years, the Montgomery County 4-H Club was determined to be noticed.

"Ze cheesemaker iss married wis an American," the man at the neighboring table told my friends and me at a cafe in Lauterbrunnen, gateway to the Jungfrau region of Switzerland. The region draws visitors from around the world. They board red railcars to the 11,333-foot Jungfraujoch. En route, movie fans gaze out the window - cut through solid rock - that Clint Eastwood clambered into in The Eiger Sanction. Nearby, the Alps' longest cable car rises to the Schilthorn, whose summit restaurant starred as the lair of villainous Ernst Stavro Blofeld in the James Bond film On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

HARRISBURG - While Punxsutawney Phil's appearance is a harbinger of spring (or not), January's weather prognosticator is the annual Pennsylvania Farm Show. The event's arrival, regulars will tell you, often ushers in deep winter's harshest week, with snow and frigid temperatures. But fear not, Farm Show fans and first-timers, all the action - from baby-duck races to pulling contests by giant draft horses - takes place under the roof of Harrisburg's sprawling Farm Show Complex & Expo Center.

HARRY CARAY was a man about town. A guy who liked to stop in a local taproom and hoist a few with friends. And, oh, what friends. Chicago Sun-Times columnist Neil Steinberg was recently given access to one of the late broadcaster's diaries in which Caray detailed a stretch during 1972 in which he went barhopping for 288 straight days. Naturally, he wasn't alone. Wilt Chamberlain, Jack Benny, Don Drysdale, Gale Sayers and Jack Dempsey were among his drinking buddies.

It was December 2013 when my plane dropped from the sky. We collectively clenched, wondering if our seat cushions really floated, and slammed down onto what I hoped was the runway. The pilot's voice filled the cabin. "We made it!" The woman next to me squeezed my hand and I thought, "Were we not supposed to?" When we passed several goats penned alongside the runway, I realized this was just how one landed on the tiny island of Grenada. Grenada is in the southeastern Caribbean Sea, about 90 miles off the coast of Venezuela.

With a turn of her head, Doris Thorn can look out across 127 acres of farm fields, and nearly 84 years of memories. "I'm told there's a bald eagle out there," she said recently in Chesterfield, Burlington County, glancing toward the snow-cloaked irrigation pond where her great-grandchildren flock on hot summer days. Her son's house is over there. That's her grandson's house back there. And those fields and barns outside her window are reminders, too, of her childhood on a dairy farm: of rounding up cows on horseback with her brother, squirting milk from an udder into a kitten's mouth, and their father nursing a sickly newborn lamb to health, warming it in the oven and feeding it with a milk bottle.

The disappearing bog turtle, newly distinguished among endangered species, has found a friend in the lowly cows that graze on marshy New Jersey farmlands. The unlikely relationship between the two creatures is being nurtured under the year-old federal Working Lands for Wildlife program, which identifies seven critically endangered and threatened species across the country for special attention. The bog turtle, one of America's tiniest turtles and a native of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, joins several birds, a tortoise, and a rare rabbit whose survival has become a priority.

David A. Levitsky, 89, a South Jersey businessman who learned the entrepreneurial ropes on his father's cattle farm and used that acumen to grow a large medical-supplies distributorship, died of complications from surgery Friday, April 12, at Virtua Marlton Hospital. Since 1996 he had lived in Moorestown. Two of his life's focal points, however, lay to the south, in Bridgeton. One was Leon Stotter Inc., the company he shepherded for 27 years. The other was the Cohanzick Zoo, whose hundred denizens - from white tiger Ganesha to Stabby Cuddles, the porcupine - he adored.

What is it? Cheese curds in Philly? Yes, whey! The classic, Midwest county-fair staple has come to the big city. Bite-sized chunks of fresh cheddar shipped in from Wisconsin are deep fried in a light crust for a gooey, crunchy finger food not unlike a miniature mozzarella stick. Unlike your average stick, though, these morsels are bursting with flavor. Go East, young man: The Cow and the Curd was the brainchild of Rob Mitchell, a former English teacher from Shenandoah, Schuylkill County (home of Mrs. T's Pierogies)
