A 'cownicorn' has been born on a farm in Uzbekistan.

The cow has the usual two horns, but also a third horn extending out of its forehead.

A video was posted online showing a group of people examining the rare mutation.

The farmer who owns the animal told local media he had initially been worried the animal would be rejected by the herd, but it the extra horn has given the calf an advantage, enabling it to push other calves out of the way. 

Since the video was posted online viewers have questioned whether it is a product of pollution.
