Newborn calf with two limbs undergoes surgery in Turkey
A calf born with two additional limbs on its back underwent surgery Monday in Turkey.
The newborn calf’s additional limbs were surgically removed by a veterinarian in the central province of Konya.
The condition is a rare disorder called polymelia, which affects fewer than four out of every 100,000 cattle births worldwide.
A cow owned by Ismail Atmaca, a farmer in central Konya, gave birth to the calf a month ago.
Atmaca asked veterinarian Emre Yilmaz to treat the calf.
