BURLINGTON (AP) – A rare two-headed calf born at a farm in Racine County, then euthanized, will be mounted and displayed at a local high school.
The calf was born at Kevin Whitley Farms, in Dover, on Feb. 12. Kevin Whitley’s son, Kellon, says the calf was born backwards and the head was the last to emerge. Kellon says when he, his father and two others at the birth saw the double head, they looked at each other and couldn’t believe what they were seeing. The calf had trouble lifting its head and was euthanized within hours of its birth.
The Journal Times says the calf’s body was brought to Burlington High School and studied by biology students. It’s being mounted at a taxidermist and will be displayed at the school.
