A cow named 'Doris' has gone viral on social media after she pretended to be asleep to get out of being milked.

The animal, which lives as part of a 200-strong herd on an Isle of Wight dairy farm, was branded "stubborn" by the farmer John Brodie.

In the video, which was shared online by John's wife Laura, Doris was seen "pretending" to be asleep to get out of being milked.

John was heard trying to coax an unimpressed-looking Doris outside on a cold morning two weeks ago prompting the bloke to say she is was "more person than cow".

In the video, John said: "This is what a stubborn dairy cow looks like. Look, everyone's out. Everyone's getting ready for milking except for Doris.

"Doris is actually pretending to be asleep. She isn't really asleep."

He then told her that she could see her eye peaking at him and her ears moving at the sound of her name.

The video has since attracted sympathy from across the globe after she was featured on a US news broadcast and attracted more than 1.5 million views on TikTok.

Viewers rushed to the comments, claiming they would be doing the same if they were a cow.

One user said: "I think I've found my spirit animal. Leave Doris alone."

Another commented: "Let's start a petition for Doris to have a lay-in. She's a tired puppy!!"

To which, the farmers replied: "She'd definitely sign that."

A third wrote: "Note to self: Do not move ears when pretending to be asleep to avoid getting up. Thanks Doris!"

"She deserves to lay in, leave her be," a fourth added.
