In a truly strange case out of Zimbabwe, a village chief has been enlisted to help a family who say that one of their cows has suddenly begun to talk! The bizarre case began last month when Chief Zimunya was informed of the weirdness by members of the family who were troubled by what they were hearing from the creature. "This is a true story of a cow that talks. Speaking fluently," he told a local media outlet, "I have never heard of a talking cow but this one is really speaking; speaking our mother language."
According to Zimunya, the cow in question is not only talking, but airing its grievances against the family. Specifically, the chatty creature has been known to complain about being fed late and not having enough water to drink. Amazingly, the cow is also said to have criticized the family's choice of land that is used for their cows to graze and argues that the pastures provided to the livestock do not yield sufficient food for the animals.
Rather than rejoice in the fact that they somehow now own a talking cow, the family has apparently gotten tired of the creature's constant grumbling. As such, they've asked Zimunya to determine how it acquired the ability to speak and, more importantly, what can be done to stop it. For his part, the chief believes he knows the cause of the creature's newfound ability: witchcraft. "Someone in the family played with black magic for business enhancement and the chickens are now coming home to roost," he declared.
