In latest quirky Swiss poll, voters asked to save cow horns.
In this April 13, 2014 file photo two cows fight during the traditional “Combats de Reines” (“Battle of the Queens”), a cow fight in Bussy-Chardonney, western Switzerland. During the combat the cows simply push forehead against forehead. They also use their horns in different ways. Swiss will decide on Sunday whether to ban farmers from removing cow horns.

The real question is if a farmer has a cow born without horns, will he have to a plastic surgeon in Sweden and have horns surgically implanted to keep up with stereotype or the symbol of Swiss identity?
Some say that the horns are nature’s radiators in the summer time and help to keep the cow cool.
Voters will “butt heads” over the issue and some say it will be a “neck-and-neck” race at the polls.
