"CCTV captures moment a cow creeps up and attacks a man in the street - for no apparent reason"

Tweeted in by James Higham and JuliaM, from The Daily Mail:

This moody cow decided to take some frustration out on an innocent bystander while it was having a stroll down an alleyway. The footage, shot in Pakistan, shows a man stood [sic] talking on his mobile phone next to a wall.

Wandering the streets of its own accord, the cow is seen heading down the same alleyway, seemingly minding its own business. However, it clearly takes a disliking to something the man is doing, and pauses behind him.

After a couple of seconds of consideration, the cow instigates its vicious attack by digging its horns into him and catching the man, who has his back turned, completely unawares.

The animal pins him up against the wall and then then sends him flying through the air with an almighty flip of its head. He does a complete somersault in the air before crashing down with a painful-looking landing on his side.


Ouch!

I am so disappointed. When I read the headline, I assumed Cherie Blair had gone on a mugging spree!

The Daily Mail is notorious for using the word stood instead of standing and sat instead of sitting. I don't know why the editor, if he/she exists, lets this occur. They also life stories from US authors/publications without altering any spellings. The standards applied on-line are simply awful. The side bar of shame though is what is truly offensive.

PS, what are the chances?

DrE, indeed. The key is to minimise the window a bit and drag it over to the right so that you can't see the side bar of shame at all.
