When his chickens started disappearing a few weeks ago, a farmer in eastern India figured dogs or jackals were to blame — until he discovered his calf making a meal of his poultry.Moloy, who uses only one name, and his 1-year-old calf have since become local celebrities, with the carnivorous cow appearing on television in India’s West Bengal state and hundreds of people flocking to see them in Chandipur, a village 145 miles southwest of Calcutta, the state capital.

“To catch the culprit, Moloy got up very early … and to his disbelief found that it was his calf which came out from the cow shed and was eating the chickens alive,” Debjyoti Chatterjee, a local resident who filmed the calf eating a chicken, said Thursday.

Yes, you read that right. The typically grass, goat and hay eating creature had developed a taste for chickens. The owner of the missing chickens caught the calf gobbling up baby chicks at night. He decided to stay up and catch the culprit after he’d lost four 48 chicks in one month. A local veterinarian says the calf’s behavior is abnormal because of deficiencies in it’s diet. The cow is a sacred animal for Hindus.
