Weighing about 10 kilograms upon its birth, eight months later, the cow since reached the weight of about 100 kilograms.
A bizarre-looking cow suffering from an apparent birth defect, with an extra leg sprouting from the animal’s back, has caused quite a stir among the residents of a village in Shaanxi, China, where it was born, the Daily Mail reports.
The story about the malformed creature was broadcast on local television, with the cow’s owner, Mr Zhao, confessing that he was troubled by the animal’s birth after some neighbors regarded it as “unlucky”.
He also noted that the cow’s “extra” leg “had grown with the animal and could even move when he touched it”, the newspaper adds.
