A Cambodian woman marries a calf who she believes is her husband Tol Khut brought back to life. The heartbroken lady who lost her husband a year back said that her husband’s soul came to her followed by the calf licking her hair, neck and then kissing her which was enough to convince Khim Hang that it’s her husband.
Khim Hang says that the five-month-old calf does everything including going upstairs in the house just like her husband did.
But it’s not just her, her children too believe that the five-month-old calf is their deceased father. Tol Vandy, her son explained that the calf only licks the arms of his relatives. Even her Lim Rith highlights that the animal “loves his children” and its behaviour with them is enough to prove that he is none other than Tol Khut.
The family tucks the calf in bed and it sleeps with Tol Khut’s favourite pillow as Khim Hang has vowed to care for it till her death and asked her children to care for the calf after her death. People from all over the country have been flocking to their house to see how the calf stays with the family.
