Wild cows are considered to be a real local attraction! The fact is that there were no mammals on Providenciales before the colonists appeared on the island in the 16th century. But the Europeans who arrived here built many farms where they were engaged in the production of cotton and brought all kinds of cattle here. Alas, over time, the income here has become less, slaves were not going to work forever for the owners and they started a riot.
