So he snatched the much-loved baby away from his doting mom and left him outside. All alone.
Then Moses got his second lucky break. A kind woman walked by and, noticing the little calf, approached the farmer. When she heard his story, she asked the farmer if he was planning to feed the little calf - but the farmer just said nothing and turned away.
The startled woman couldn't leave the little calf to his fate. She confronted the farmer and convinced him to let her take the little one away, bringing him to safety at Animal Rescue Inc., a cat and dog rescue.
His rescuers decided to name him Moses because of his mother's love. Like the baby who was set in a river in a handbasket, Moses might not know his mother but he's a living testament to how much she cared.
