It’s kinda freaky when animals are born without all the right features, but it’s even freakier when people started worshipping them as gods because of these deformities.

This is exactly what’s happening over in West Bengal, India where a weird mutant cow with one eye has been born and is now being worshipped as a god. Here’s what a local source said about the situation, after revealing that the cow was abandoned by his mother by farmers have banded together to look after it:
Ever since the calf was born, the people have crowded to see the bizarre calf.
They are now considering it to be a miracle of God and have started worshipping it.
The cow had been discarded by its mother and the women are feeding the cow.
The people think that worshipping the cow is going to bring luck and prosperity to the family of whoever worships it.
I mean that’s logical isn’t it? In actual reality the animal was probably born with cyclopia which can occur in both animals and humans. This happens when the left and right hemispheres in the brain aren’t separated and so a signal cavity with one eye is created instead.
Usually sufferers of this condition die fairly soon after birth or are stillborn as it’s very difficult to breathe, but sometimes they manage to get out and stay alive for a bit. This is clearly what has happened here, although the villagers have chosen to interpret it in a different way. Hope they don’t take it too hard when the cow dies fairly soon.
