A deformed calf born with just one huge eye is being worshipped as a “Miracle of God” in West Bengal in India.
- Newborn cow was born only with one huge eye and no nose.
- The poor calf was rejected by its mother and found care in local who adopted the animal
- The deformed creature suffers from cyclopia which is a rare congenital disorder that occurs in both humans and animals when a sole eye is located where the nose would normally be
The newborn cow with a single large eye and no nose is said to be rejected by its mother but then adopted by locals who are now caring for it.
The cyclops calf is seen in the video to be gasping for breath but still some questioned the authenticity of the malformed animal.
Despite that doubt, locals believed it was “sent from God” and started worshipping the creature.
A source said: “Ever since the calf was born, the people have crowded to see the bizarre calf. They are now considering it to be a miracle of God and have started worshipping it.
‘The cow had been discarded by its mother and the women are feeding the cow. The people think that worshipping the cow is going to bring luck and prosperity to the family of whoever worships it.”
Watch the video
The calf actually suffers from cyclopia which is a rare congenital disorder that occurs in both humans and animals when a sole eye is located where the nose would normally be.
It develops in the womb when the left and right hemispheres of the brain do not separate as they are meant to early in the pregnancy.
However, animals with the condition are normally stillborn or die shortly after due to chronic breathing and brain problems.
