SPARTANBURG, SC — A dairy farmer in Spartanburg County is seeing double after he had his two-headed calf preserved.
Farm owner James Anderson said it was a rarity that the two-headed calf was born at his farm where he keeps dairy cows and grows strawberries.
The animal died shortly after being born and Anderson decided to send it to a taxidermy shop to have it stuffed.
The taxidermist said it’s unlike anything he’s ever seen.
“When Mr. Anderson called and inquired about having this done, Mr. Anderson put a resume on my plate for two-headed calf. It is the craziest thing I’ve ever done,” said Grover Bearden, of Southland Taxidermy Studio.
Bearden said the calf required an extra mold to ensure it would last.
