My concern would be, if the two extra legs are not removed, will they become heavy on the back of this poor animal as it matures ? Animals are not dumb, this poor calf probably feels something is not right on it's body. I hope the legs can be removed, and not left on because it's an oddity to the owner or a conversation piece for the news media. I hope the owner has compassion on this poor creature and can remove the legs if possible. Compassion begets compassion. What goes around comes around.

If the calf is not bother by the extra limbs, they should stay on. All this extra attention will keep him from being killed for it's beef.

The extra limbs doesn't necessary mean an undeveloped twin, could just mean mixed up DNA. Possibly from our pollution. Or the food we feed the cattle. Or the steroids we give them. Or maybe it's just nature gone wild.

I find it hard to believe that so many folks would make sick and ruthless jokes about something that this poor calf had no control over. I don't think any of you would appreciate this type of comment if your child was born with an extra part. I hope he lives a long and healthy life, 6 legs and all!!!!

It is so disheartening to read that some people can not think beyond their stomachs. Their comments are not funny. Have some compassion for this creature, and do not think of food when the conversation is about his specialness and his life.

How sad this sick comment is in regard to the discussion of this little animal. Must you think only with your stomach?

That was my first thought also. I wonder if there are any other 'parts' for another calf inside this one?

I wonder if there might be a Vet. out there who might be kind enough to help this poor calf out and amputate the two useless legs, so that it may have a normal life. Poor Baby.
