'Mutant cow' with two faces and FOUR eyes stuns Chinese farmers


A COW in China has given birth a four-eyed calf with two faces.

Villager Feng Wenhong shared images online of the animal, which is suspected to have experienced some sort of genetic mutation while still inside its mum’s uterus.

The resident of Donggou village in China’s Qindu district said the cow had given birth to four healthy calves in the past.

She said: “All the other calves were very normal. They brought our family around £700 in income.”

Images of the mutant calf show it with two large heads, two ears, two mouths and an incredible four eyes.

2 HEADS: The cow is suspected to have experienced some sort of genetic mutation


“I didn’t notice it at first. I thought the calf’s head was just bigger than usual, but as I walked closer I realised it had two heads.”

But it is still unable to stand up, Feng said.

The villager added: “I didn’t notice it at first. I thought the calf’s head was just bigger than usual, but as I walked closer I realised it had two heads.

“It can drink from both mouths and seems to be quite stable, but the poor thing can’t stand.

The six-year-old cow’s latest calf has unsurprisingly become something of a must-see for nearby villagers, who have all come to Feng’s farm to view the animal first-hand.

Wu Wei, who is deputy head of the Qindu District Forestry Station, said the cow’s condition was almost certainly caused by a gene mutation during its developmental phase.

Animals like this do not tend to live long, he noted.
