This is the moment a dirty cow makes a huge splash as it jumps into a hotel’s swimming pool to cool itself off on a hot day, interrupting the children who were playing in the pool.
It then swims over to the pool’s steps and walks out like any other guest leaving a cloud of mud and dirt behind it where it had jumped in.
Alexandra Stasiuk, who recorded the incident, uploaded the footage which she told local media was captured at a hotel in the Carpathians, in western Ukraine, to her Facebook page last Wednesday (11th August).
It captured the cow on the edge of the pool at first just putting its trotters in as if to test the water and then throwing itself directly in at the deep end, leaving muddy water in its wake as the dirt caked on its body washes away.
The cow appears to have enough after a few seconds in the water and attempts to climb back out, but finds itself unable to do so and begins to swim in circles whilst the children swim out of its way.
In the following video, the cow successfully leaves the pool by swimming over to the steps of the pool and climbing them like any other guest.
Having successfully cooled down and washed off the dirt, the cow wanders out of the hotel whilst guests look on in astonishment.
The cow appeared to have at least temporarily ruined the pool as the water turned brown from the dirt that was washed off the animal that is left behind in a brown cloud.
One Netizen named ‘Lina Bogoroditskaya’ reacted to the video: “The water became so dirty after the cow jumped in.”
The video’s uploader, Alexandra Stasiuk, answered saying: “Yes, you’re right. But the hotel workers cleaned the pool right away.”
According to local news sites, no one was hurt during the incident, and the cow disappeared after leaving the pool.
