Rare Two-Headed Calf Born in Baker County, Florida

Baker County, Florida - A family of farmers are shocked after their cow gave birth to a two-headed calf.

The calf's name is Annabel and she was born Monday in the middle of a field on the Crews family farm.

Carolyn Crews says she comes out to feed the two-headed calf at least four times a day.

"It was just like a surprise because no one has even seen anything like this around here," said Crews.

Or really anywhere, for that matter. A birth like this happens every one in 400 million times.

Annabel has four eyes, two mouths, two noses and two ears and two heads.

"I don't think it was meant to be for something like this to live. You know, I don't think she's going to make it," said Crews.

She says they've reached out to a veterinarian, but the doctor said there is nothing he can do.

"She might have pneumonia...I mean there is no telling," said Crews.

Her heavy breaths are worrisome and her head is too heavy for her body. She cannot walk, which means she cannot feed from mother. However, she is unique, something the Crews family and many in Baker county say they won't forget.

"I never dreamed of such a thing happening. It'll be something that we probably never seen in our lifetime," said Crews.
