Seven Legged Calf


Neatorama.com | May, 25 2009 | A seven-legged calf was born in Steamboat Springs, Colorado on Thursday.
Veterinarian Lee Meyring delivered the animal and called its condition a birth anomaly.

“I’ve been in practice for 14 years, and I’ve only seen one other calf with a fifth leg,” Meyring said. “And so this one’s definitely the most bizarre I’ve seen. It’s just a twinning process that had an incomplete splitting of the embryo, then the fetus.”

The mother seemed to be OK, Lynn said. The calf lived only 10 minutes, she said. One of the seven legs had two hooves. The calf had two spines but just one head. The veterinarians don’t plan to examine its organs.
