Featured Animal Action

There were two scenes that featured a cow in a pasture. The cow grazes and looks around as Pootie talks to it. A fence surrounded the field in case the cow decided to wander. Two trainers accompanied the cow wearing a tether that the cow was conditioned to and comfortable wearing. One trainer placed the cow on a mark and a second trainer held the tether out of camera range using hand signals to get the cow to look in various directions.
