No bull!

Written by  The Hound

OPINION: Your canine crusader has had a wee bit of feedback about the new gender and sexual identity change being included in the next census, which was mentioned in the last column.

One astute southern farmer contacted yours truly to say that before submitting his stock numbers to his accountant, the IRD and Stats NZ this year, he thought he'd better survey his livestock to see if any of his cows had under gone a gender change to become bulls or any of his bulls were about to calve and be ready for milking.

However, he reports that none of his livestock reported any change to either their sexual or gender identity this year.

"It appears only humans are silly enough to embrace such Woke-driven ridiculous stupidity," the man on the land advises.
