World Animal Day is celebrated globally each year on October 4th. It started in Florence, Italy in 1931, at a convention of ecologists. On this day, animal life in all its forms are celebrated, and special events are planned in locations all over the world. Srila Prabhupada revealed Krishna’s love for animals, especially the cow: “The community in which Krishna preferred to belong was Vaisya community, because Nanda Maharaja happened to be a Vaisya king, or landholder, and his main business was cow protection. It is understood that he had 900,000 cows and Krishna and Balaram used to take charge of them, along with His many cowherd boy friends, and every day, in the morning He used to go out with His friends and cows into the pasturing grounds.” (Srila Prabhupada letter to Hayagriva – Montreal 14 June, 1968)
