Crossing borders without required documents can be considered a serious offence – for humans, at least. While humans can take care of themselves and not stray into unknown areas without knowledge, animals happen to be an exception to this. Would animals be punished too if they strayed beyond borders?

A pregnant cow called Penka has been awarded a death sentence for wandering and crossing over to the European border. Penka had walked away from the herd near the Bulgarian village of Kopilovtsi and crossed the border into Serbia, a non-EU country.
