Montserrat Cox was at a safari park with her boyfriend, and they were feeding giraffes.
As her boyfriend pulled out the ring one of the giraffes nudged Cox on the elbow wanting more food. The jealous animal wasn’t happy that her boyfriend took all the attention away from him and proceeded to headbutt Cox.
Cox said that the impact was so hard she had sprained her neck and had to wear a neck brace the next day.
“Had to wear a neck brace for the next few days, but still the best proposal ever,” Cox wrote.
A follow-up video posted by Cox shows just how hard the animal hit her and the whiplash she got from the impact. The video has gone viral, but people commenting aren’t sure Cox made the right decision.
“I would have taken that as a sign to say no,” one user wrote.
Another commented, “I don’t know personally I would take that as a sign from above quite literally.”
Other commentators thought the post was funny.
“[G]iraffe was like: you can do the ring part, but [I] ’m doing the kissing part,” one user wrote.
“She was like ‘GIRL LET ME SEE THE RING!!’ bridesmaid perhaps,” another user said about the giraffe.
“I think the Giraffe wanted your man and was trying to take you out,” someone joked.
Another user wrote, “If I don’t get knocked out by a giraffe during a proposal I don’t want it.”
“No friends; It’s not a sign of anything. We have been very happy together for 7 years,” Cox wrote in response to such comments.
