French super-market chain, Carrefour, finally opened it's new store in Salalah off of Robat Road just before the weekend last week. Local Dhofari blogger, Dhofar Eco Bug, covered the opening on their blog, which I'm basically re-blogging here because it just blows me away that this would even happen.
In an apparent marketing strategy to indicate just how fresh their cuts of meat are at Carrefour Salalah, some bright spark thought it'd be a great idea to get a cow in on the act. A real, live, terrified cow. Locked in a cage, and wheeled around the fresh meat section of the supermarket.
What. The. Fuck?
Aside from the fact that this would have been totally terrifying for the cow, what exactly did the management think would happen when the cow inevitably shat itself? So, come to Carrefour, and smell poop and buy possibly contaminated meat.
I robbed the pictures from Dofar Eco Bug's blog, and the pictures were taken by S Anil Kumar - thanks for sharing them!
