After a rare 'dwarf cow' became famous in Bangladesh, thousands of tourists ignoring quarantine measures and gathered to see it.



According to foreign media such as BBC News on the 9th, a large number of people are flocking to a farm in Charigram near Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, to see the dwarf cattle 'Rani' recently.



Rani is 23 months old, but she is 51 cm tall, 66 cm long, and weighs only 28 kg.



Rani, a bhutti, is half the size of other cattle of a similar age.



The owner of the rani claims that the rani is the smallest cow in the world.



It is smaller than the Indian cattle Manikiyam with related records.



Manikiyam was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's smallest cow in 2014 with a record of 61cm tall.



Rani's story has recently been introduced several times through local TV and newspapers.



Then people started flocking to see Rani in person.



Currently, in Bangladesh, the authorities have imposed lockdown measures, including movement restrictions, due to the rapidly increasing COVID-19 situation.



However, the residents did not care and rented a three-wheeled taxi, etc., and rushed to the farm.



The farm manager, MA Hassan Haurader, told AFP on the 7th that "15,000 people have visited this place in the past three days to see Rani."



"I didn't expect people to be so interested," he said, adding that while the COVID-19 situation is worsening, people are visiting in droves.



It is known that tourists who arrived at the farm ignored social distancing, such as taking pictures of Rani in a crowd, and some were not even wearing masks.



Sajedul Islam, head of local veterinary care, said the farms had been advised to limit the number of tourists, who were concerned that tourists could transmit diseases that could endanger Rani's health.



Islam said, "Rani is the result of genetic inbreeding" and "is unlikely to grow any longer."
