A boy in Cambodia has apparently started suckling from a cow for milk every day, various reports say.
The boy named Tha Sophat reportedly started doing this in July after his parents left their small town to look for work, the boy’s grandfather, Um Oeung, says.
The 20-month-old boy apparently saw a calf being nursed by the cow, and started doing this because he had no breast milk given that his mom was away.
The grandfather has also been criticized for letting his grandchild suckle from a cow. However, he says that the boy is healthy.
Nonetheless, he did say that at first, he tried stopping little Tha Sophat from suckling from the cow, but the boy cried incessantly.
