I spotted these tails "hanging out" at a local butchers the other day! The shopkeepers thought it very amusing that I should be taking a photo of them! Apparently they are not for eating, but for assuring customers that the meat on sale is from dairy-type cattle and not the gristly water buffalo that you tend to get more in the countryside. I'd have thought a simple sign would have sufficed but I guess, come the Summer, you'd find it harder to keep the flies off the meat with a sign, right?
