World’s Only Living ‘Unicow’ Gets Star Treatment

GOSHEN, Conn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Being an outcast isn’t necessarily a bad thing – at least when you’re the world’s only living “unicow.”

That’s the word from Tim Commerford, a petting zoo owner who owns a rare “unicow” – a 2,400 lb. steer with a 20-inch horn smack dab in the middle of its head.

The 8-year-old unicorn wannabe, “Hercules,” may be a “cowt-cast” in the animal world, but he’s quite the celebrity among humans.

In fact, Commerford says Hercules gets pampered by a staff of people who bathe, comb, feed and manicure him – enough to give anyone a big head.

In Commerford’s words, “Hercules is reaching stardom and he knows it. He has a bit of an ego problem because he’s so spoiled. He’s such a diva.”

Hercules the unicow has toured various east coast fairs this summer, and is making his final tour appearance at the “Big E State Fair,” which starts September 15 in Springfield, Massachusetts.
