London, Jun 18 : Daisy the cow has become an internet sensation after she was filmed opening the bolts on her stable gate - with her tongue.
Daisy lives on Tom Grant's farm, in South Armagh, Northern Ireland.
Grant discovered her remarkable gift when he installed a surveillance camera to film the nightly going-ons at his farmstead.
He told British broadcaster Sky News that he took the unusual move after his cattle kept showing up outside - even though he had locked them in for the night.
“I thought maybe there was a bit of rustling in the area and I thought maybe there was boys about during the night, maybe trying to steal one of them,” he said.
Imagine his surprise when the camera captured Daisy's “udderly” amazing trick - she used her tongue to open the bolts on the stable gate before leading the herd to freedom.
“I was amazed. I never saw anything like it before and I thought maybe here is a cow with unusual intelligence,” Grant's brother, Vincent, told Sky. AP
