“God has taken birth from the body of a local cow. We came here to seek his blessings. Religiously, it is an avatar of Vishnu. We believe it’s a similar character mentioned in Bhagavata Puran, a Hindu religious text,” local businessman Mahesh Kathuria told the outlet.
However Ajay Deshmukh, of Wildlife SOS, explained to NaiDunia that the bizarre creature was not a miracle, but rather a victim of birth defects.
“Sometimes in the womb, some organs of the body… are not fully developed, due to which they are born with a strange appearance or face,” Deshmukh said.
