An urban legend created around 1970 about cows being easy to push over. It started when people watched certain movies with cow tipping in it. The stories then spread like telephone. It was believed that a cow had weak legs and joints and were thus, easier to push over. But, this is false as they weigh more than a human and in reality are impossible to tip over.
a humorous or horrific story or piece of information circulated as though true, especially one purporting to involve someone vaguely related or known to the teller.
This was an urban legend created around 1995 when a reported sighting of dead goats with three holes in their necks arose. After this incident many in Puerto Rico began to claim spotting a short lizard-like creature around the island. The legend then spread to South America and India.
