RANDTS will last a thousand years.

Something is very, very wrong with some animals. We had the predatory squirrels, now we have a sadistic cow calf. This report from India details about a cow named Lal, which eats chickens. This bizarre case started of when Lal's owner, Ghosh noticed his chickens going missing suspecting that they were taken by cows.

"We were shocked to see our calf eating chickens alive," Ghosh told Reuters by phone from Chandpur village, about 240 kilometers (150 miles) northwest of Kolkata.

The family decided to stand guard at night on Monday at the cow shed which also served as a hen coop, after 48 chickens went missing in a month.

"Instead of the dogs, we watched in horror as the calf, whom we had fondly named Lal, sneak to the coop and grab the little ones with the precision of a jungle cat," Gour Ghosh, his brother, said.

Local television pictures showed the cow grabbing and eating a chicken in seconds and a vet confirmed the case.

About 55 million years ago hoofed (ungulate) predators started to appear. They ran after their prey like today's horses and killed them with their jaws. These creatures are now extinct. Maybe Lal is the start of a new species of predatory ungulates. Some people however suspect he was a tiger in his past life. However, I would argue he was a human in his previous life. Well, humans surely enjoy eating chickens more than tigers.

Holy cow!
