Newborn calf with six limbs undergoes surgery in Turkey
Rare disorder called polymelia affects fewer than four out of every 100,000 cattle births worldwide

KONYA, Turkey (AA) - A calf born with two additional limbs on its back underwent surgery Monday in Turkey.

The newborn calf's additional limbs were surgically removed by a veterinarian in the central province of Konya.


The condition is a rare disorder called polymelia, which affects fewer than four out of every 100,000 cattle births worldwide.

A cow owned by Ismail Atmaca, a farmer in central Konya, gave birth to the calf a month ago.

Atmaca asked veterinarian Emre Yilmaz to treat the calf.
