'Sea calf' born to cow that swam to shore after hurricane

A calf has been born to a pregnant cow who swam 4 miles to shore after being swept away by Hurricane Dorian in September

BEAUFORT, N.C. -- A pregnant cow who swam 4 miles (6.4 kilometers) to shore after being swept away by Hurricane Dorian in September has given birth to a “miracle” calf.

Getting close to the mother and calf for a photo has been difficult, because they run at the sight of humans, Cedar Island resident Woody Hancock told McClatchy News group. “The wild cattle that lived on Cedar Island were not used to seeing humans or having them approach them,” the state's National Park Service said.
