When Susie Coston who works in an animal rescue watched Blitzen the very small calf in a cattle auction, she knew that she needed to rescue him from certain death. “He called him garbage and joked about… no 1 bid ,” Coston, who’s the federal shelter manager for Farm Sanctuary, wrote on their site.

Blitzen weighed just 37 pounds, and also may have fitted into a bowl.

That day she had been rescuing two additional unhealthy calves who arrived from mive legumes in Pennsylvania and New York, known as Lawrence and Alexander. “Calves frequently arrive in the stockyard too feeble to endure, dehydrated, and never have obtained critical colost in their moms,” Coston clarified. “This leaves them vulnerable to disease and disease, which instantly sets “

Blitzen was just a couple of days old, also with Lawrence and Alexander, he had been hurried to a animal hospital in Cornell University. All this occurred in 2010, although Blitzen had to be treated for pneumonia and had a blood transfusion, all three of those very small cows survived. Alexander expired after five years in a refuge, because of complications coming out of his tough start in life.

Noays Blitzen spends his days playing Lawrence, and in a weight of a few million pounds, he’s one powerful cow!
