Pictured: The cow that was zapped by lightening - and survived

It has certainly been flame grilled but this extraordinary cow is still standing.

The poor creature was struck by lightening and left with blistering burns. You would expect it to have been cooked alive.

But the cow miraculously survived, apparently unperturbed by the ordeal, and is already back roaming the meadows.


Flame grilled: This poor cow was struck by lightning but, in a rare freak of nature, lives to the tell the tale

Professor of Physical Geography, Jon Nott of James Cook University, said the event was rare but entirely feasible.

He said: 'Cows are susceptible to lightning strikes because both sets of legs are on the ground.

'But, more often than not, they die from it.'

He added: 'The electricity from a lightning strike would enter the front set of legs and exit out the back legs so, based on the picture, it is possible it happened.

'While I can't explain the knee wounds, the ankle wounds would be consistent with those of lightning.'

The cow is believed to have been struck by the bolt in Gladstone, Queensland, Australia, last month.

But if it wasn't for its horrific wounds, you could hardly tell the animal had suffered.

Perhaps it has drawn comfort from the old wive's tale. After all, we are all told that lightning never strikes in the same place twice.

wow, the cow is lucky to survive but I'm sure it must be very painful. Better die then suffer from the pain..

It must have really hurt and it has such a strong willpower! Able to survive a lightning strike is not easy

Wow. Amazing cow, painful marks. But I guess if it hasn't been disturbed by the incident, then it's fine for itself.

Re: Pictured: The cow that was zapped by lightening - and survived

I guess in the animals' world, they only care about 2 things: Survival and continuation of their species. So they prolly wouldn't choose death over relief from pain bah? Aye, sometimes animals have stronger willpower than humans eh? At least they don't think, "I'm so sick of being a cow!! I wanna die!!" And then commit suicide or what.

Maybe it's God's way of reminding us to have faith that miracles do happen and we should remain strong when we face difficulties.. =)

Aww.. I wanna hug the cow! ^^
