i think I've seen a study where dogs barks have accents... I'll see if I can dig it up.

Yes, studies were done comparing rooster crows around the world. They're different.

I noticed a whole herd of cows saying mayyyyyyyyyyyiii{little squeek at the end} when I was in New Brunswick. It was very noticable, so much so, that I commented on the accent to my host, who being Canadian, claimed it was I who moo'ed funny.

Are you sure the farmers haven't just been out in the sun too long? I wonder if it's due to local breeding selecting different "voices."

And whales too.

As compared to northern cows, the cows in the south say something more like mooooo y'all.
