Rani, who was vying for the title of the world’s smallest cow, has died.
The farm owners have confirmed that the Bhutti/ Bhutanese cow, known as Queen, passed away in recent days.
According to a statement from Shikor Agro Industries Limited, in Bangladesh, the cow died due to “overeating and gas accumulation in her stomach”.
The farm owners claim the cow was 51 centimetres and weighed 26kgs.
Rani the cow
Mujtaba Abul Ahad, the executive director, said: “The Queen is dead!”
“Root Agro’s Queen died before being recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records for Bangladesh as the smallest cow in the world.”
“Two officers of our organisation visited Root Agro’s Savar branch on August 19th, 2021, to reply to the third email received from the Guinness Book of World Records Authority.”
“Rani was immediately taken to the hospital on the advice of our veterinarian Mr Atikuzzaman due to excessive gas during the photoshoot.”
“Specialist doctors provide necessary treatment for the Queen’s wellness right after being taken to the hospital. After treatment, the Queen died after being well for a while, making all of us upset.”
“Meanwhile, many people spread the rumours of the death of the queen while she was alive during treatment, which has hurt us so much.”
“It was very disappointing to see some people commenting on our mentality about selling the Queen at a high price.”
“Because the Queen was not a product to sell to us; rather, the Queen was the love of roots agro – the pride of Bangladesh after all.”
“Since the time of birth and death is set, we do not believe that the queen would live longer if the authorities of Root Agro had sold the queen at a low price.”
According to the Guinness World Records, Manikyam, is currently the world’s shortest cow, standing at 61.6 cm or 24.07 in.
