JAMIESON, Ore., Sept. 19 (UPI) -- An Oregon family said a two-headed calf was born on their farm, but did not live long after the birth.

Heidi Kirschbaum said she received a phone call Monday from her sister-in-law, Charlan, saying the family's pregnant cow had given birth at their Jamieson farm, and the calf had emerged with two heads, KBOI-TV, Boise, Idaho, reported Thursday.

"It wasn't alive when we saw it," Kirschbaum said. "But it had one neck, two ears and four eyes."

Kirschbaum said the family is keeping the calf's body frozen until they figure out what to do with it.

"We know it doesn't happen very often, but it happened to us," she said.
