OMEN: Plagues & Pestilences - Two-Headed Calf Born Near Blyth, Canada And Cow Born With Two Heads In Albania?!

The 2 headed calf born on local beef farmer Les Cladwell's farm, examined at the University of Guelph.

March 31, 2016 - EARTH - A two-headed baby cow has been born in a Albanian village leaving hundreds of villagers baffled. Meanwhile, a cow in Blyth, Canada gave birth to a calf with two heads.

They say two heads are better than one.

But that wasn't the case when local beef farmer Les Caldwell's cow gave birth to a two-headed calf.

Caldwell says he was shocked by the discovery, and after consulting a local vet, determined that the best course of action was to euthanize the animal, who couldn't even stand.

"It couldn't stand or function properly, so the most humane thing to do, unfortunately, was put it down. I don't want to see an animal, or anything for that matter, suffer," says Caldwell.

After the animal was euthanized, it was sent to the University of Guelph, and after a post mortem, it was determined that the rest of the animal seemed completely normal after the head. It had four legs, a tail, and two ears. However, the animal was born with four eyes, two noses, two esophagus and even two separate brains.

This type of occurrence is rare, with some studies suggesting that Caldwell would have had a better chance of winning the lottery 14 times. Caldwell says a friend mentioned this to him, and he thought maybe it was a sign.

"I thought I maybe should grab some lottery tickets if that's the case! If it is as rare as they suggest, maybe I should try my luck," he says.

Those studies also suggest it was more likely to be struck by lightning 500 times, or be eaten by a shark 35 times, saying this type of birth irregularity is very rare, particularly in North America. - BBN.

A two-headed baby cow has been born in a village leaving hundreds of villagers baffled.

The calf, who has yet to be named, left locals stunned after it was cut out of its mother's stomach at a farm in the village of Bulo in southern Albania's Gjirokaster County.

Because of the calf's size and deformity, the mother cow died in labour.

And when the owner cut open her stomach he was dumbfounded to find the two-headed calf looking up at him.

Villagers say they have never seen anything like it and cannot begin to explain how it happened.

But local media has speculated that it could be the result of poor nutrition or genetically modified foods.

The birth follows that of another two-headed calf born in Peru last year.

In August 2015, villagers in the remote north-western village of Vista Alegre were left divided over the birth of the animal, with some seeing it as bringing good luck, and others saying it was a bad omen.

Some believed that the calf, born in the north west Albania, had been sent by God as a warning about all the evils in the world.

But others believed it was a mythical birth or that the cow must may have gone through a swamp when she was in season.

The Albanian calf is still alive and is currently being looked after by its owners who are feeding it with milk from a bottle. - Star.
