Widowed mother in Cambodia marries a calf

74-year-old Khim Hang married the animal believing it to be the reincarnation of her deceased husband.

Heartbroken due to the loss of her husband last year, Khim Hang first became convinced that his soul had returned to be with her when a young calf started to show her a surprising amount of attention.

The animal would follow her around and lick her face, actions which both Khim Hang and her children interpreted as an indication that the calf was none other than her late husband, Tol Khut.

Her new bovine companion is now living at their home and sleeps in a bed with the same pillow and bedsheets that Tol Khut once used.

Khim Hang says she intends to look after the animal until the day she dies.
