Cambodian woman marries cow she claims is her reincarnated husband

A woman from Cambodia’s Kratié Province has married a cow from her family’s cattle farm, international media reports.

Khim Hang, 74, married the cow after the passing of her husband. Hang claims that shortly after her husband died, the cow followed her upstairs and kissed her.

“I believe that the calf is my husband because whatever he does…is in exactly the same way as my husband did when he was alive,” she told Reuters Television in 2017, a year after her husband passed away. After what appears to be an extended relationship with the calf, who gained a sizable following on social media when the newlywed’s initial story broke in 2017, Hang finally tied the knot with her cow/reincarnated husband.
