Thousands of people flock to the farm to see a new celebrity in Bangladesh – a dwarf cow named Rani.
This Bhutanese cow is about 2 years old, but it is only 51 cm long and weighs 28 kg.
Despite the coronavirus quarantine in the country, more than 15,000 people visited the queen at a farm in Charigram near the capital Dhaka.
Farm owner Hassan Khowladar has applied for the Guinness Book of Records: He says the queen is the world’s smallest cow.
Visitor Reena Begum told BBC Bangla: “I’ve never seen anything like this in my life.”
Last year, Mr. Khowladar had bought Rani at another farm in the north-west district of Naugaon.
He says that she walks badly and is afraid of the other cows in the field, so she is kept separate from the rest of the herd.
Mr. Khowladar says, “She eats small amounts of bran and chaff twice a day. She loves to walk on the street and is happy when we hold her in our arms.”
Mr Howladar told the BBC that representatives from the Guinness Book of World Records would visit his farm this year to see if the Queen would take the crown.
With only a few weeks left for the Islamic festival of Eid al-Adha, speculations are rife whether the queen will be sacrificed. But the farm’s owners have said they do not plan to part ways.
