A five–month–old calf has become a social media sensation after convincing a Cambodian villager that he was the reincarnation of her dead husband.
‘I believe that the calf is my husband because whatever he does…is in exactly the same way as my husband did when he was alive,’ say Khim Hang, 74.
Khim Hang believes she has been reunited with her deceased husband again, as she thinks he has been reincarnated as a calf. She is so certain that she even married the bovine and now shares a bed with it.
The 74-year-old lady was heartbroken after her husband Tol Khut’s sudden demise over a year ago in Cambodia’s northeastern Kratie Province. “When I went to see a medium, his soul came in and said ‘I am your husband’.
Then I noted that he (the calf) licked my hair, then my neck, then kissed me so that really made me believe that he is my husband,” she told Reuters.
But she is not the only crazy one, her children too believe that the five-month-old calf is their deceased father.
Tol Vandy, her son explained that the calf only licks the arms of his relatives. Even her Lim Rith highlights that the animal “loves his children” and its behaviour with them is enough to prove that he is none other than Tol Khut.
The young cow was born in March and has become a local celebrity thanks to the claims.
