A NEW movement is hoping to raise awareness of the importance of the industries which keeps the rural parts of Spain alive. 

Paso de Vaca is an initiative by the Casa Grande de Xanceda to see as many zebra crossings in Spain replaced with cow print versions.

The goal is to remind city dwellers of the importance of rural Spain, which relies on cows, livestock and the agricultural and dairy industries.

“Paso de Vaca hopes to make the rural visible in the city,” the movement’s website reads.

“We love zebras, but we owe cows a lot more! Therefore, our proposal is to change the stripes of the zebras for the typical spots of the cows.”

At the moment there are only four cow crossings with one being officially granted permanent status in Galicia.

If you want your town to have a cow crossing, visit the website here where you can declare an interest.
