Meet Blinky the double-headed cow.

Poor old Blinkey was born on a dairy farm in Tulare, California with four eyes, two noses and two mouths, but only two ears and one neck.

“We call her Blinky because all four eyes blink at the same time,” said Greg Hamstra, the farm’s owner.

The cow was born earlier this week, but had to be euthanased after one its lungs collapsed.

Hamstra said he is not sure what will happen to Blinky’s remains. He said he would consider donating her body to a legitimate scientific organization for study. 

Poor old blinky….

Sheep 1- Fox 0. Flock fights back as yellow bellied fox ends up in tree!

When a German fox wondered into a meadow looking for a nice meal, he got a hell of a lot more than he bargained for…

With a juicy young lamb in his sights, Mr. Fox thought he was home sailing, but one of the rams in the field that day had other ideas.

The aggressive sheep, not interested in having one of the flock’s younger members doing a disappearing act, unexpectedly charged at the stunned fox, and hunter became hunted.

The fox took flight, literally, scuttling up a nearby tree where it remained for quite some time, before making a quick dash back to the den.

They don’t make them as tough as they used to be.

The Crazy News: Shot of the Week

sevenlambap_468x340.jpg

A leg for every day of the week.

When farmer Dave Callaghan was walking the green pastures of his farm near the town of Ashburton on New Zealand’s south island, he got the shock of a lifetime when he realized that one of his little lambs had 3 more legs than usual.

“I have never seen anything like that,” said Dave in a deep Kiwi accent.

Vets believe the lambs condition is a result of an error during embryo formation, which meant he was born a polydactyl – or with many legs, and occurs in one in every few million.

The animal is also a hermaphrodite and missing some of its bowel, and it will have to be put down.

A wee lamb

“To keep it alive is probably inhumane really,” was a vets assesment.

“It’s quite a happy bright wee lamb, he’s just slowly going downhill really,”

Poor fella.

See the original article HERE.

Note: I see now that CNN has picked up this story, I was trying to think of a creative headline for this one for some time, but this takes the cake…

“Lamb with 7 legs faces the chop”

Oh CNN, your so funny….

Speaking of New Zealanders and meat… Have you read the story about Vegans refusing to have sexual relations with meat eaters?
