The Seven-Legged Cow

Posted on 15. Dec, 2008 by in Biology & Animals

This week, a cow with seven legs was born in the village of Rondonópolis in Mato Grosso, and has become an attraction in a very rural area of Brazil. According to a vet who examined the animal, the problem is congenital, and could have been caused by exposure to radiation or toxic chemicals, or the excess or deficiency of a certain vitamin. He recommended surgery to remove the extra three legs so the cow can live a normal life.
