A calf in Gorontalo captured the internet’s attention over the weekend for bearing an unnerving resemblance to a human, netizens claimed.

“The calf was born on Friday afternoon in Imana Atinggola square, in North Gorontalo regency,” Gorontalo Police spokesperson Adj. Sr.Comr. Wahyu Tri Cahyono told The Jakarta Post on Saturday.

Sadly, the calf, which came from a cow owned by a local police officer, died not long after it was born.

It reportedly had a round head and a front-facing pair of eyes, instead of at the sides.

The calf’s body was straight, making its front limbs look like a pair of hands.

A photograph of the unusual bovine was uploaded to a local Facebook group, Portal Gorontalo, which has some 474,000 members. The picture has gained more than 2,000 likes and hundreds of shares. (gis)
