Farmer hails 'miracle' birth of two-headed calf

A cow has given birth to a two-headed calf in a “divine miracle”, a farmer in northern Egypt said today.

Sobhy Ganzoury said it took two hours and much pulling to deliver the rare calf. He said the difficult birth has weakened the calf’s legs.

Mr Ganzoury said the veterinarian informed him that the calf, which was born this week, is now in a stable condition and is expected to survive.

He said he intends to keep the animal as a reminder that “God is able to do anything”.

The calf still cannot stand up because of its heavy heads and weak legs, and is being fed her mother’s milk with a baby bottle.
