The bizarre animal appeared to have an extra “unicorn” horn. It was captured on camera in Uganda, and the video has now been seen millions of times.
A strange three-horned cow was purportedly filmed in Uganda in a perplexing clip.
The video, which has been viewed over 3.5 million times, shows the strange animal munching in a field.
Nothing seems out of the ordinary at first glance, but as the animal moves, it becomes clear that it has three horns.
The two horns on either side of the cow’s head appear to be the same size and thickness as those observed on ankole-watusi cattle.
But in the middle of the cow’s forehead, another horn protrudes out much like a unicorn horn.
When the animal moves its head, it appears lopsided.
It bends to one side with the right side of its head hanging lower than the other.
Cattle keeper Rubabinda uploaded the video to Twitter only days ago, with hoards of being left confused.
One person said: “Wow, this is amazing.”
“This cow shouldn’t be sold or slaughtered ever. If anything, it should be worshipped,” another suggested.
A seemingly unimpressed viewer said: “Just one of those freaks of nature where you have incomplete separation of twin embryo.”
One viewer suggested the middle horn be “cut off” believing it will “reduce the heavy weight on its head and providing at least an easier style of life”.
However, several questioned whether the footage was genuine or fabricated.
It comes after a mutant calf born with a “human face” was filmed in Argentina.
The calf, who was born with a small nose and mouth and a human face, was born in the Santa Fe community of Villa Ana.
However, the mutant cow is thought to have only lived for a couple of hours.
