Calf Eats Chicken
I always thought the world was screwy, but if this is true, it just got screwier.
A family in India who raised chickens couldn't figure out why they were vanishing. Theft? Preditors? The mystery was solved when someone caught their pet calf eating them.
Supposedly he sneaks into the chicken coop and snatches them up with "the precission of a jungle cat." Huh? What kind of cow confuses live poultry with the lawn? That's nuttier than a Snickers bar.
If he was my pet, I'd be afraid. As a calf he's chomping chickens. What happens when he's a full grown bull? How do I know he won't sneak into my house and eat me?
Lucky for him, he's in India, where eating a cow is as unthinkable as eating a horse is to Americans. It's probably just as well that nobody eats him. With his diet, he'd probably taste like chicken.
