You can't tip a cow

Cow-tipping myth hasn't got a leg to stand on
Cow tipIT IS the kind of story you hear from a friend of a friend — how, after a long night in a rural hostelry and at a loss for entertainment in the countryside, they head out into a nearby field.

There, according to the second-hand accounts, they sneak up on an unsuspecting cow and turn the poor animal hoof over udder.

Not so, says Margo Lillie, a doctor of zoology at the University of British Columbia

Here’s a report on the study.
