This week, Chinese officials reported the birth of a two-headed calf in the Linshui county of Sichuan province in southwest China on February 14, 2016. 81-year-old Wen Fangqing told reporters:
“A calf with two heads, if I hadn’t seen it myself, I would never have believed it.”
The owner of the calf says he heard noises from the shed two days earlier and knew the cow was about to give birth. When the calf was born the next day, the owner was surprised to find it had two heads. The owner says the calf appeared perfectly healthy but unfortunately, died shortly after birth. The mother, who had given birth to three healthy calves prior to this one, is doing fine.
