A bull with two heads is about to "meat" its maker after being sold to a slaughterhouse.
The sales yard described the bull as an “interesting bullock” to potential buyers and pointed out the second face "has an eye, one tooth and working nostrils,” according to the Cairns Post.
Although the two-faced bull is able to chew its food easily, the additional exposed areas on its faces attract flies.
Despite that, Mareeba Salesyards chairman Gerry Collins insists the animal is otherwise fine.
"There's nothing wrong with it as far as the animal is concerned," Collins told the Sydney Morning Herald. "Sometimes the genetic engineering doesn't quite work according to plan."
Collins said cattle born with two faces or extra limbs are unusual but not uncommon.
"There was a fair bit of curiosity and interest but I don't know whether there was a lot of interest in a commercial sense," he said, according to the Brisbane Times.
Despite Collins' misgivings, the two-faced bull did sell to an unnamed slaughterhouse, the Irish Mirror reports.
