Nippy cows wear bras in Russia

The freezing winter weather in Russia at the moment is so extreme farmers in Oimyakon have been forced to make their cows wear protection.

Local civic leader Rustam Krivoshapkin said: "All the cows in the village wear them.

"The bra protects them from getting their udders completely frozen up.

"They all seem to like it because it can't be nice to have such cold teats.

"They come in all sorts of different colours and they are all made of very warm thermal warm material, like fleeces," he added.

In the depths of winter, the temperature in Oimyakon often plunges to -64C.
