With six legs and two heads, the birth of conjoined twin buffalo calves to a landlord in the Shaheenabad areas of Sargodha caused a stir in the locale.
As reported on Express News, large crowds visited the landlord’s property to catch a glimpse of the new arrivals.
Many locals termed the birth a bad omen, and possibly a sign of the “end times.” Still others termed the conjoined calves the by-product of “black magic.”
In contrast, the local vet termed the birth “absolutely natural” although he said he had never seen such a birth before.
The calves were unable to stand without assistance. Given their condition, their owner opted to feed milk to both heads using a baby bottle, rather than relying on the calves’ mother to feed her young.
The landlord initially refused to sell the calves despite numerous offers ranging from Rs30-40,000, but eventually settled on handing them over to an interested party from Islamabad.
