Cows are an enigma of the animal kingdom. From the outside they don't ever appear to be doing much, they just stand in a field and eat grass.
The only useful or vaguely interesting thing that cows actually do is lie down because it means it's going to rain and you can bring your washing in from the line.
That was until today.
A video released online has revealed another incredible skill, even more impressive than their meteorological clairvoyance; 'king-fu'.
Yes, according to this shocking footage one deceptively agile cow charges across a road, leaps into the air and heel kicks an unsuspecting rider off their bike, sending them flying into the dirt at the side of the road.
And to add insult to injury, the milky bastard does a runner.
The bizarre incident took place in a rural area of Capiata in the central western Paraguayan region of Departamento Central and slightly less surprising has gone viral since the clip was shared.
In the video footage, a herd of cows is seen crossing a road as two motorbikes pass in both directions, nothing too strange, a fairly mild affair. However, things quickly take a turn for the worse when a rogue cow suddenly quickens its pace and ends up making a beeline for one of the bikers.
As the cow draws level with the motorcycle, it springs into the air, ballet dancer-esque, twists its huge frame and kung fu kicks the biker from behind with its hind legs.
The female motorcyclist is sent crashing onto the grass verge while the brazen cow makes his escape, running off into the distance.
A male biker does stop to check on the injured woman, lying on the ground without a helmet on, but according to local media the woman wasn't seriously inured and didn't need to be taken to hospital.

An anonymous user added: "The cow did not attack the biker, it tried to jump over her to avoid bumping into the motorcycle."
And Gustavo Salas said: "I think the cow was spooked by the bike and reacted by kicking her."
