Janus, a two-headed kid that was born on a farm in the US, has died.
Nueske Farms welcomed the rare arrival, which “captured the hearts of some many” on April 5th, as reported by us here.
The owners of the farm posted an update on social media on May 5th. “It is with great sadness that we share the news that Janus died today.”
“This took us quite by surprise as he had been doing very well up until today.”
His first feeding went as normal, but he was not very hungry for his mid-morning feeding, the post explained. “We took him outside to practice standing and soak up some sunshine (the last picture in the slideshow is from today).”
“Later in the afternoon, he still was not hungry and then things took a turn for the worse. We checked his temperature and it was low. He became less active and within a few hours, he was gone.”
“Janus captured the hearts of so many this past month! Thank you for all the kind words and support. So many people were rooting for him!”
“He will surely be missed but is a reminder that though unexpected challenges may come into our lives, we can choose to face them with kindness! And kindness is contagious!”
