Calf Born With Two Faces ‘Lucky’ To Be Alive
Stan McCubbin had to do a double take while walking his Taylor County, Kentucky farm. “From a distance, I thought I had twins lying together,” he remembers. “I saw two noses. I thought it was twins and then when I saw her, I was just completely blown away.” What he actually had? A two-faced calf.
Stan’s five-year-old daughter, Kenley, has named the critter Lucky – and she’s not wrong. Lucky has has two mouths, two noses, and four eyes. The animal can stand, but walks in circles before falling down. Lucky’s middle two eyes don’t work, and when one mouth moves, the other does too. All this aside, the calf is eating and seems to be otherwise healthy.
How long the McCubbins will have Lucky is unknown but for now, both Stan and his wife Brandy says she’s a “blessing.”
