Three-eyed cow in Wales, a deity, has been bought by a Hindu charity for £5,000

A three-eyed car born at a beef farm in Brynmawr, North Wales has been bought for £5,000 by a Hindu charity and named Mahadev. This is another name for the three-eyed deity Shiva or it is a slight derivative according to Wikipedia (Mahadeva). The calf will live in Leicester at the Jain Animal Sanctuary which said, “It’s an honour and privilege to be given the opportunity to provide love and care to Mahadev.”

There were questions on Facebook as to whether the eye is functioning. It doesn’t look like it is but it is dead centre which I guess is exactly how Hindus like it. In fact, I’d be very surprised if it does function. The calf’s third eye was seen by vet Malan Hughes while doing a routine TB test.

I am adding a photograph of the calf below just in case the embedded post from Facebook disappears as they tend to do over time.

Shiva is one of the principal deities of Hinduism. He is the Supreme Being in Shaivism, one of the major traditions within Hinduism.
