Her children are very sure their mother can sense the spirit of their father inside the cow. The woman also allows the cow to sleep on her late husband’s pillow. This is the second phase of love for the ‘couple’. Here’s the story.
A woman in Cambodia has married a cow after it kissed her, saying she was convinced that the animal was actually her dead husband reincarnated.
A bizarre video shows Khim Hang, 74, living in ‘marital bliss’ with her bovine bride at her home in the northeast Kratie province of Cambodia.
Khim is convinced that this cow has the “same character” as her dead spouse.
While the video did not feature the wedding, several villagers claimed to have attended it, the Sun reports.
The cow currently lives in Hang’s one-storey house where she gives it a proper bath and lets it sleep on the same pillows as her departed husband, Tol Khut, who died the previous year used to sleep with.
Khim reckons that her husband’s spirit resided in this calf when it started to lick her hair and neck and then kissed her like her late husband used to.
The widow was convinced that it was her husband reborn.
She told Reuters: “I believe that the calf is my husband because whatever he does… is in exactly the same way as my husband did when he was alive.”
“I believe that the calf is my husband because whatever he does … is in exactly the same way as my husband did when he was alive.”
Khim’s son said that he believes his mother and can “sense his father’s spirit within the animal”. This is why he vigilantly makes sure that the bovine does not wander off by accident.
The woman has ordered her children to look after the cow after her death and insisted that they should treat it as they would her own father.
Khim’s kids are forbidden from selling the cow or maltreating the cow and have been ordered to have the same funeral rites as a human.
