Cow Attacks British Backpacker For Singing Black Eyed Peas Tune

Cow Attacks British Backpacker For Singing Black Eyed Peas Tune

A British backpacker was beaten up by a grumpy cow that sent her 'flying into the air' after it caught her mockingly singing Black Eyed Peas hit 'Humps'.

UK backpacker Melissa Meville has been travelling around India since November last year, but came a cropper in Rajasthan recently on her way back to her hotel. Noticing a cow in the street which had a huge hump, she did the only logical thing possible and sang 'My Humps' at the beast.

Unfortunately, the cow didn't like the Black Eyed Peas - they famously don't - and got angry, attacking the 25-year-old from the Isle of Wight, where the Black Eyed Peas are popular with humans.

Speaking to The Daily Mail, Melissa said: "I saw this huge cow with a big hump so I stupidly started singing this song.

"As I was walking past the cow it suddenly lunged at me and head butted me.

"The impact of the hit was so strong that I went flying in the air before landing on the ground and injuring my knees. My face and shoulder was badly cut."

Melissa ended up with a bloodied nose and severely bruised eyes, and also damaged her shoulders and knees.

She continued: "I never expected a cow could hurt me so badly. I guess she was in a really bad mood. There was so much blood on me.

"It was quite a funny experience. I'm in pain and it's quite annoying but still quite funny."

Unfortunately, Melissa's bovine nightmare has left her reeling with a fear of cows.

"I was never afraid of cows but this incident has left me pretty terrified of them now. Do not underestimate them," she added.

"I never walk past a cow now and try to avoid them. I used to find them very cute but I'm going to be weary of them forever now I guess.

"My face is still black and my body aches a lot. I hope to recover soon."

Fortunately, Melissa is on the mend, and is making her way to Nepal after her Indian adventures.

A report in 2015 revealed reported that there had been 74 human deaths from cow 'attacks' since 2000. Most of these were farmers, though some were walkers in country areas. Conversely, humans probably killed quite a large number of cows during that period, albeit for burgers and steak purposes.

I don't fear cows myself, but I do get upset by the way that one of them laughs in my face every time I'm buying my favourite triangle-shaped cheese.
