On January 25, at 10:00 a.m. a two-headed calf was born in Sotk village, Gegharkunik region of Armenia in the cowhouse of Hakob and Alina Avetyans. Hakob is an electrician and his spouse is a housewife. The couple has been living together for 25 years and has been engaged in livestock breeding for 20 years.
According to Avetyans, the cow gave birth to a calf with a difficulty. The calf is fed artificially 3 times a day. According to local veterinarians, if the calf lives three days, there will not be life threats. They stressed the animal has gender characteristics of both sexes.
The villagers are shocked, as they have never seen a two-headed calf, a photojournalist Gagik Shamshyan told Armenian News-NEWS.am.
