Six-Legged Calf Born in Switzerland - as part of the news and politics series by GeoBeats.
Switzerland is now home to an adorable six legged calf!
Veterinarians first believed the baby cow would not and could not survive. The seven week old cow, named ‘Lilli’ is warming hearts in her home town of Weissenburg, few miles outside of Bern. Her owner mentioned that despite the vet's predictions he could not euthanize her because she was ‘so full of life’.
‘Lilli’ has a curve in her spine which will most likely prevent her from becoming a regular milk cow. However, her owner says as long as she stays healthy and active, she will be able to go along with her cow siblings to Alpine pastures during the summer.
Thus far, ‘Lilli’ is eating, drinking and walking around the fields, seemingly oblivious to her disability.
'Lilli' is one of the many animals to have overcome formidable odds.
Faith is a female dog that was born with 3 legs; two hind legs and 1 deformed front leg which was later amputated. Now Faith makes appearances all over in order to motivate people.
