Calf born with ‘human face’ hailed as Hindu GOD by hundreds of villagers in India (PHOTOS)

A COW born with ‘human features’ in India has been worshipped by villagers who believe it is an avatar of a Hindu God.
Locals believe the calf’s ‘human-like’ facial features suggest is is an avatar of Hindu God Lord Vishnu
The calf was born with eyes, nose and ears resembling those of a human in an animal shelter in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh, northern India.
Sadly, it died within an hour of its birth on Thursday – but locals from nearby villages still gathered to seek its blessing, believing it to be an avatar of Hindu God Lord Vishnu.


Video footage shows people offering flowers and bowing before the dead calf, which has been kept inside a glass box since it died.
Hundreds of locals from surrounding villages have gathered to pay their respects to the calf
Now, locals plan to build a temple for the animal.
Mahesh Kathuria, 50, a local businessman, said: “God has taken birth from the body of a local cow. We came here to seek his blessings. Religiously, it is an avatar of Vishnu.
Locals believe it is similar to a character mentioned in Bhagavata Puran, a Hindu religious text
“We believe it’s a similar character mentioned in Bhagavata Puran, a Hindu religious text.”
Raja Bhaiya Mishra, 55, the manager of the cow shelter, added: “It’s a miracle that the calf was born in this shelter. Thousands of people have been here to see it. We will be cremating him in three days and a temple will be built for him. This avatar has most definitely created a devotion feeling amongst the people.”

He explained the mother was rescued from a butcher and brought to the shelter six months ago.
However, animal health experts have rubbished any superstitions surrounding the calf.
There are now plans to build a temple for the dead animal
Dr Ajay Deshmukh, a senior veterinary doctor at Wildlife SOS in India, said: “This is a case of an anatomical anomaly. If a gene didn’t develop properly or there was a fault, it causes multiple structural deformities, and such anomalies happen.

“It has got only scientific reasons and explanations, there’s no superstitions here.”

I strongly believe that this is the doing of a human with the animal's mother...if only they can get DNA tests
