If you can potty-train a child, you can potty-train a cow. At least, that was the theory a group of researchers in Germany decided to test, in a bid to find a solution to the environmental damage caused by livestock waste.

如果你可以訓練孩子自己上廁所,你也可以訓練乳牛進行如廁訓練。至少,這是一群德國研究員決定驗證的理論,目標是解決牲畜糞便危害環境的問題。

"It’s usually assumed that cattle are not capable of controlling defecation or urination," said Jan Langbein, co-author of a study published Monday in the journal Current Biology.

這項研究週一發表在《當代生物學》期刊上。該研究的合著作者揚‧朗本說:「人們通常認為,家畜無法控制大小便。」
