Fascinating video has captured a grieve stricken female cow attempting to stomp the life out of an anaconda which killed its calf.
The video shot on the border between the South American countries of Brazil and Paraguay shows three farm-workers attempting to drag the approximately five-meter predator away from the scene.
However, confronted with its young calf’s killer the grief-stricken cow attempts to stomp on the snake with its hooves and also repeated headbutts.
The snake is also seen not going down without a fight as it repeatedly tries to bite the angry cows head.
When the original footage of the scene surfaced online the farm-workers were criticised by some viewers saying they had exacerbated the confrontation between the animals.
