This video is much more than spilt milk. According to the Daily Mail U.K., a clip of cows tumbling out of an overturned truck in Russia has become a YouTube sensation, with some viewers calling the video a hoax.



The viral video, which has gathered over three million views, was filmed by the dashboard camera of a Russian driver. Footage shows the oncoming truck traveling in front of the camera trying to swerve to avoid another vehicle. The truck takes the move too far and flips over, spilling live cows onto the road. Luckily, the animals are shown getting to their feet without issue after recovering from the shock of the accident. Reports say that all of the cows and the truck's driver left the crash unharmed.



This shocking sight has many viewers calling the video a cruel hoax. So far, however, all evidence points to the clip being genuine. Dashboard cameras are becoming more popular in Russia, with drivers attempting to capture accidents for insurance purposes.

This clip is one of many popping up on the Internet showcasing Russia's dangerous roads. Now that dashboard cameras are more common, people outside the country have a chance to see the poor and scary conditions drivers have to cope with there.

The truck carrying the cows was hit by an on-coming vehicle..this is clearly seen at second 10 at the start of the video and no, no cow comes out of the cab, that was debris from the top of the cab. Play the video back bit my bit and you will see. Poor cows, but very funny too. Hope the driver was OK.

It's just a mooovie people. Don't cry over spilled milk. It behooves me to believe that people think this is real. It's much like teats on a boar. Quit swishing your tails people. I know you think you're right but you probably believe cows have four stomachs too. Hats off to "cow tipping" "Luckily they were wearing leather" and "talk about ground beef!". Now THOSE were funny! (I know, mine was lame)

LOL...so gullible! If you look closely...a cow comes flying out of the cab. So...was it the cow's lousy driving that caused the truck to tip over?

OMG! Those poor cows! It looks real to me. It looks like they got back up on their feet. I hope they were all ok.
