putting rope through cow nose piercing (india)


putting rope through cow nose piercing (india), cattle market, leash, people, west bengal

I took this photo at a cattle market I stumbled upon on the road in West Bengal (India).­

All the local farmers were there to buy and sell livestock.­

This young farmer was pulling a small rope through the piercing in the nose of his cow (a common technique to hold the animal on a leash).­
