According to a snippet article in today’s Indian Express, cows outnumber humans in New Zealand! A record 5.8 million cows were counted by June 2009 against a New Zealand statistics count of 4.3 million citizens!
New Zealanders have long endured jokes about being outnumbered 20-1 when it came to sheep. However in 2009 that count was at a 8-1. Still, I am surprised that a beautiful country like New Zealand has only 4.3 million humans. That’s the population of one of the cities in the US, the UK or Germany.
