Residents of Nanjekho village in Busia county are living in fear and bewilderment after being visited by a strange cow that behaves like human beings.
The cow is said to be well behaved and always visits the toilet for a long call just like human beings do.
The dark brown domestic animal which is standing at the heart of the remote village in Matayos sub-county is said to be well behaved and always visits the toilet for a long call just like human beings do.
According to locals who spoke to the local media on Friday, February 5, the strange cow has no known owner and they do not understand how it made it to the village.
“I have never seen a cow that visits the toilet and behaves exactly like human beings while inside,” said Shaban Wandera, a resident of Matayos. Other than its unique toilet manners, residents of Nanjekho suspected the bull could also be having the ability to listen and hear what people are saying.
“It is like it has the ability to hear and discern what you are discussing despite being some distance away, it is totally strange and unfathomable,” added Wandera.
The cow which is roaming in the village undeterred is also said to be violent especially on men. The bull, according to villagers, has the ability to attack and cause harm even from far.
“It unleashed a kick on one of us who was 50 metres away and it broke his rib,” recalled Wandera. Jackline Masiga said the cow is totally unapproachable, making it impossible to tie and contain it at one point.
Nanjekho residents are now reeling in great fear and panic as some advance superstitious stories about the domestic animal. “We think this is a demon. Maybe this cow was stolen and the owner decides to perform some magics so that it behaves the way it is doing,” said another resident.
Locals called on the government to step in and save them from the glaring ‘demon’ that has put the village under siege. “This cow attacked and injured my neighbour who is still recuperating in the hospital. He sustained injuries on the shoulder,” said Priscilla Naliaka.
