For whatever reason, sometimes Nature or God, however you want to look at it, delivers some unexpected results. Anybody who works on a ranch long enough will see an example - calves born conjoined together somewhere, or with a partially absorbed twin's legs sticking out somewhere. But the deformity on display here is particularly rare, in that they still don't know much about it. According to the Canadian Veterinary Journal, there have only been 118 cases documented at this time.
Here's one of them.
This heifer was born on a farm in Townsend, MT, and those present could immediately tell that something was wrong. There was a lump in his throat like something out of a horror movie. And it was pulsing. Well, it became pretty obvious pretty fast that the thing was pulsing because it was beating; the lump was the heifer's heart.
