Gerard McGovern posted a series of images of this bovine fetus - with a crown-rump length of 20cms (approximately 97 days of pregnant) – which he discovered during a routine abbatoir post-mortem examination.

The Cavan-based veterinary practitioner explained that photos one and two show the fetus inside the amniotic sac and surrounded by the chorioallantoic membrane. “The incised uterus with maternal caruncles is on the left.” he outlined.

Image three shows the fetus outside the membranes.

The fourth image is that of a female fetus, with an umbilical cord.

McGovern shares the “adventures of a large animal vet” on his Instagram which has in excess of 26,500 followers.

He graduated from University College Dublin (UCD) in 1977 with a degree in Veterinary Medicine.

Gerard runs a mixed practice – approximately 75% large animal and 25% small animal; his father – Gregory – started the practice in 1949.
