Villagers in Peru are currently debating whether a two headed calf is a gift from God or a bad omen of impending doom.
The unique calf was born in the north west community of Vista Alegre with two fully formed heads. It has two noses, two sets of eyes and two mouths.
Some believe that the calf is a mythical birth which is a good omen. Others, however, are of the opinion that the calf was sent by the almighty as a warning of all the evil in the world. The less superstitious have claimed the mutant is the result of environmental pollution because of mining in the region.
Vet Rolando Ballena Chumioque has calmed villagers’ fears, however, pointing out that the birth defect is more likely to have been caused by the use of antibiotics during the gestation period or by a simple congenital defect during pregnancy, although that definitely seems less likely than the whole spawn of Satan thing, to be honest.
Despite its fascinating appearance, the poor animal is unable to feed itself because its two heads are so heavy, the calf is unable to lift them and stand up. Instead, it is being bottle fed by farmer Edward Villegas Rubio.
Sadly, the calf is not expected to live for very long so, if God is responsible for this one, he’s done a p*ss poor job!
