Once you’ve left the facility and have the full map available to you, you’ll be able to seek out the animals. Each one is relatively easy to get to, so if you like to collect all the achievements or trophies in a game it’s a nice trophy to be able to chalk off early. Because once you have spoken to each of the dead animals below, you’ll receive the Beast Friend achievement.

To find the talking dead cow, you’re going to need to be on the opposite side of the lake from the Boat Station in Testing Ground 6. The cow is in the middle of the field there, southwest across the lake from it (map marker 2 above).
