Genetics expert Nicolas Magnago told local media that the animal could have had a rare genetic mutation.

He said: “[A] mutation is a change in the DNA sequencing that was transferred to the cow’s offspring.

“It was a spontaneous mutation caused by the action of mutagens, physical, chemical or biological agents, which altered its genetic sequencing.”
