Graphic Photo: Two-Headed Calf Born In Brier Hill


Warning: the photo below is graphic. Some people might find it disturbing.

Here's something you don't see every day - a two-headed calf.

David Stout, a dairy farmer in Brier Hill in St. Lawrence County, confirmed that the calf was born Tuesday at his farm on Sand Street.

He said veterinarian Dr. Jack Zeh delivered the animal after the mother had difficulty giving birth.

Stout said he has never seen anything like this in his 47 years as a farmer.

Dr. Zeh said it's exciting and extremely rare for a two-headed calf to be born alive.

He said this is the first time he has seen something like this in his 33 years as a veterinarian.

Dr. Zeh said the plan is to see if the animal will take nourishment despite its deformity.

If it fails to feed, Dr. Zeh said the calf will be euthanized.

The Stout farm is home to 400 head of cattle.
