Woman in Cambodia Believes Dead Husband Reincarnated in Five-Month-Old Calf

Khim Hang says the calf behaves the same way as her husband.

Some people believe living beings continue to exist even after death through reincarnation and rebirth. Meanwhile, a widow in Cambodia believes her husband reincarnated in a five-month-old calf because the animal behaves just like her late husband.

The sheep certainly mistook the cannabis for grass.
