It is being said in the viral message that this video and message have been found on WhatsApp. When we investigated, we also got that WhatsApp message easily. But on the WhatsApp account on which this message was received, it had also been forwarded. which had no verifiable basis.
In the next episode of the investigation, we key-framing the video and searched it on Google reverse image tool. So we found the same video on YouTube channel of Mexican news channel Imagen Television, where this video was uploaded on 28th July 2020.
Apart from this, the Spanish website La Teja published an article regarding the video. In whose description this incident was told of Nayarit’s zealotry. According to reports, the Perez Geledon area of Nayarit was flooded after heavy rains. After which the dairy built on the banks of Ei Kankal river was flooded and the animals of the dairy got washed away with the flood. This report revealed that most of the cows trapped in the flood had survived.
Thus, in our investigation, the claim being made with the viral video has been proved wrong. The viral video is from Mexico and not from Tirupati in Andhra Pradesh.
