The cow and calf are said to be in good condition. the calf is also suckling well but facing difficulties in standing upright.
According to K24 Digital, the locals said. “We usually hear of such cases being broadcast on radio. However, we don’t think this is some sort of witchcraft as we do not have witches in our area,”
Area Chief Aggrey Oyalo was among those who witnessed the mysterious calf and said such might be as a result of poor breading
“I call upon veterinary experts to visit this homestead in order to rescue the calf. I also urge locals to consult vets before, during and after livestock mating,” he said.
“Such cases might occur when a farmer administers drugs to a cow at early stages of pregnancy without a veterinary officer’s direction,” Rajab said.
