A cow has been heavily featured on the news feeds in recent days, for having an extra limb hanging from it’s back, as reported by the dailymail.
The animal was born in China approximately 7 months ago and is said to be living a happy, prosperous life without health problems. The extraordinary footage, courtesy of the Daily Mail, shows the cow grazing happily in the shed. A man then approaches the cow and pulls the cows fifth leg in an effort to prove it is real.
Some have called it a hoax, though the video seems to prove the validity of the fifth leg. The disease is called polymelia, meaning extra limbs. It is estimated that one of every 100,000 cattle born in the world suffer from the affliction.
The cow in question is from the Zhanjiang area of China and the footage was taken on September 24th. Is it real or a hoax? You decide!
