  • Never a calf, but a lamb, kitten, puppies, and a colt.
  • We used to watch our dog give birth each year (those were the 60s when dogs just ran free and procreated).
  • yes, my cat. it was very beautiful.
  • I've seen plenty of animals give birth. I've seen puppies and kittens being born in person. I've seen others give birth on TV.
  • I've got as of last night 302 head of cattle out here. And as far back as the mid 40's there have been cattle here on this family farm. So yes I have helped many cows most on there first born. After the first most do ok. You may not believe this. But many cold winter nights after birth of a new calf. I've put them right her in the home to dry off and warm up before taking them back to mommy. Many times I've had to lay down in the mud & snow & what ever else may be there. Just to reach up into a cow and turn the calf around head first like it should of been. And sometimes it has been known to loose both, cow & calf, if I or one of the family did not find the cow that may of been having problems in the night. Many times they may still live. Or just one may die & the other live. Most the time it was the calf that never made it. Many times I found were coyotes got to the cow when she could do nothing but keep pushing out the new born. Thats the sad part though. For at times like this ,the coyotes will kill the calf & take it from the mother. So a little advice- If you plan to raise cattle. Best to always separate the Bulls from the heard. Then plan to bring the Bulls in to breed at the correct time of the season. This way you will not have to worry about a cow having a calf at 3am in zero windy ice cold weather. Or having to bring a new born into your house to dry off & warm up to take back out to its mother. Good luck if you are thinking on going this path. And heres a +3 for your question. ...P.S. Farming is not as easy of a job as some may make it out to be. Because a TRUE FARMERS livelihood all depends on the livestock & crop as his/hers full time responsibility to maintain. For it is a big part of their family that they live in the center of each day & night..."The Missouri Crack Shot" M.C.S. Bye! Bye!
  • This reminds me of the scene in "City Slickers". Was it a male, was it named Norman? I have never seen any animal or any person give birth. If I saw all the blood and heard all the commotion I would probably pass out.
  • I grew up on a farm, I've seen eggs hatch, dogs give birth, cat's give birth, cows, and goats. I even watched our veterinarian pull calves, which is kindof scary for a 8 year old little girl, and its quite messy!
  • Yes many puppies!!!!!!!!
  • Yes, many in person and many on TV. We used to raise horses, goats, rabbits and cows, so witnessed or assisted many of those. And of course, the usually cats and dogs and even birds of all sorts, from budgies to macaws, chickens to pigeons. Only had one scary one, where my husband had to slip his hands inside and turn a foal in a very narrow mare. But all was well in the end:-) They are all little miracles:-)
  • Witnessed the birth of a little black lamb and helped with a calf and several litters of Dogs. Watched the birth and rasing of 6 Fishers Love Birds and dozens of Zebra finches. Bred Mollies, Guppies and Betas. But by far my favorite was helping in my own daughters birth. She never left my sight fromt he time she crowned to the time we left the hospital with her.
  • Yes, I have witnessed the birth of calves, foals, pigs, kids (the goat kind), babies (my own), rabbits, kittens, puppies, deer, and have even seen a chick break it's way out of an egg.
  • Yes, I have I've seen horses do it on a video since our's wouldn't do it if we were around.
  • Hiya Savage! Yes, I have witnessed many animals giving birth. The one that has always amazed me is a pig. They cannot turn around to help the babies. They can only lie there and push. The babies must break free of the membranes and work their way up mom's body to her teats, fighting each other all the way, all on their own. The momma pig also seems to go into a kind of trance, allowing people to sit and watch this amazing process when she'd try to run us off at any other time.
  • No, that would really gross me out.
  • Cows, pigs, sheep, human, dog, chicken. (grew up on farm)
  • My cat couldnt do it without me. She would look for me and call me to come in the house so she could start the birth. My job was mainly to massage her inbetween calf exit. Crazy cat ;)
  • It's incredible, isn't it? To witness a birth..I've seen a birth of a calf, dog, cat..and an egg hatching. Ü
  • Thanks!!
  • Yup, I've seen City Slickers.
  • I have seen cats and dogs give birth but the most awesome thing was seeing my husbands face while I was giving birth. He said he didnt want to be in there and see it but he was then and still is glad he got to witness it.
  • Yes, I have seen it many times. The first time I saw an animal give birth, it was a sheep. I was 7 or 8 and was on a school field trip to the county fair. I went home that day and reenacted the whole thing for my mother. She was thrilled to see it, I'm sure.
  • Only a neighbor's cat about 35 years ago.
  • i saw puppies being born!! it was crazy...the mom would eat the sack off and make this really horrible noise when one was about to come out...she'd get mad when they tried to suckle! there were 10 of em, labs
  • Not live but I have seen them being birthed on nature shows on TV. It's funny how they plop right out of there and within mere moments the quadrapods are sprung and ready to join the herd or go off to the stable, whatever the case may be.
  • Yes. It is a miracle that will never cease to inspire or amaze me.
  • I've seen calves born, helped my mare with her first foal, and I've seen cats giving birth to kittens.
  • I've seen calves born, helped my mare with her first foal, and I've seen cats giving birth to kittens.
  • I have only saw my cat give birth , and I felt bad because she had two still borns.
  • just my son's cat when she had her kittens
  • In the past 3 weeks, I have watched my wife give birth to our son, two of my dogs give birth to 13 puppies (combined total) and my son's rathave babies as well. I'm tired.
  • I've watched a cat give birth.
  • I saw my hamster give birth, then I watched in horror as she ate her young. It was very tramatizing to my 10 year old brain!
  • I was there for the births of both of our kids so I guess my answer is only yes if you consider humans animals. :)
  • We took in a dog that had been dumped the week of christmas and she gave birth to 8 puppies we watched them all being born.
  • No but I've seen tons of them conceiving!
  • I have seen dogs, cats and horses, but I have yet to see a cow give birth.
  • I have seen and assisted in many animal births.
  • I've worked with cattle most of my life. I've lost track of the number of times I've seen new life come into the world. Many times I have helped the cow in giving birth, when a leg was back or the calf was breach. One time I even successfully preformed CPR on a still born calf. It is a quite an rewarding experience that most people will never experience.
  • Not a calf but 11 kittens (not all at one time) Saddly a few died as their mother was only a year old when she had them! =( This picture is one of them!!
  • I have seen pigs and cats give birth.
  • I saw a heifer way out in the field with a calf half-sticking out of her birth canal...We ran out to the pasture and got her back into the barn...Then my dad used a tow-hitch device from a car to pull the calf out...All the animals lived and we named her LOLA (the calf).
  • I live in an area where the Sea Turtles come to shore in droves. I have sat on the beach and watched them crawl from the ocean and tirelessly dig a huge hole where they lay dozens of eggs. once the egg laying process begins, she is pretty much comatose so you can walk up on her and watch the whole thing. Don't touch her, though, that's illegal. then later if you are real lucky, you come back to the same spot and watch the babies emerge from the sand and run to the ocean :O)
  • yer i got to help when a lamb was being born it was awesome!!
  • Yes I have and it is awesome! :)
  • Animal Science Major = Foal watching was my life Yep, quite a few times. It's something. A little gross, but if you like animals that's life!
  • Noticed? I was the father.
  • When I was a young boy I witnessed the miracle of life many, many times on the farm, Horses Cows Pigs Chickens Geese Goats Frogs Skunks Dogs Flies Mosquitoes Crops Cats
  • my young cat had 1 liter of 5 kittens and it was scary because she was young and small for her age and got some placentas caught in her, but she got them out eventually and was a WONDERFUL mother she ALWAYS kept an eye on them they were so cute i cant believe i got to see that miracle happen.do they always have there baby's when we usually sleep(8pm-7am)? because she had them at 2:45am(ugh!)and like all the stories I've heard are early births!maybe because its quieter.
  • ive only seen a goat give birth i was about 13 or 14 it was amazing!! i named it Tigger i wish i will see more animals n the future and will love 2 own a petting zoo or something
  • I'm a vet so its pretty much an every day occurrence. unfortunately, I usually witness the harder and more irregular birthings. Today I had to assist a young cow whose oversized calf had died and wouldnt fit out. I then assisted an Alpaca 'unpac'. The cria (baby alpaca) was up and walking in less than 10 minutes from when I delivered it!
  • yes i have seen of following animal cow buffallo woman
  • yes every kind of farm animal, a deer, a rabbit, dogs, cats, ferrets, i have say i have never seen a fish have birth , and a lot other animals ( i luve animals) i live in the country on a small farm and around a lot of farms. it is sooo fun
  • No,not in person anyway(tv)How's the baby?
  • yes I have Blank. I feel so odd when I see your questions and answers:):)
  • Spent a few years on my aunt's farm. :)
  • Yes and it flips me out. Ive seen quite a few. I had my children by C-Section and I like it that way
  • Yeah I have seen lots of calves and a foal being born. Everything was very messy but in the end the babies were beautiful... Living on a farm there are always little calves bouncing around (yes bouncing) and I just love watching how protective their mothers are of them. The property next door breeds horses and there are usually a couple of foals hanging around too. Which is always cute. I will probably see different types of animals being born in the future though, because I am hoping to become a vet!
  • I saw a cat give birth. It happen in my mom's car!
  • Yes, I've seen my beagle/basset Annie give birth to two litters...13 pups all together!
  • My experiences have been kind of sad so far. I watched my dog give birth. I tried helping with one of the puppies, and I think I killed the poor thing because it just whimpered and wouldn't eat. When I came home the next day it was cold and stiff to one side of the basket. When out hunting one day we stopped and looked out over a field. There were some horses right in front of us and one of them came up to the fence, acting strange. When she turned you could see a foal's nose sticking out. It turned out the thing had already died, but now the mare was in trouble. We called the horse's owner and he gave us the news later on. I think he was able to save the mare, though.
  • i did once about 4 years ago and it hurt me my girlfriend would not let go of my arm
  • tons of births of calves.. live on a farm

  • well.. almost a million, but baby people still scare me
  • When i was about 5 i witnessed one of our family goats give birth to a kid out in the barn at about 5 in the morning.. It was the wierdest thing i'd ever seen in my life at that age!! R.I.P. Blank Savage!
  • I've seen puppies, kittens, goats and humans give birth and I've seen chickens lay eggs!
  • My dog's first litter.
  • i saw a giraffe give birth on TV. does that count? it ended up sitting down on the baby half way through. the baby lived, though.
  • I take care of many dog births around my neighborhood. My own schnauzer has given birth twice, but everytime the last one dies :( I love it, rubbing them as they come out.
  • I have given birth... So the experience went way beyond sight for me. I had witnessed my childhood pet guinea pig give birth, it was gross because they eat their own placenta afterward. yuck!
  • cat, dog, chicken egg, human
  • cows, horses, dogs, sheep, human, cats, and snake :)
  • Yes, many times. I have seen dogs, cats, and other small animals give birth. Children are most fascinating though, far more than any animal.
  • I've seen a human give birth (we are animals too you know ha). But also I have seen a dog give birth.
  • Many times.
  • Oh wow..Another of Blank Savage's questions. I will take this as a good sign and answer it though he won't read it. You are missed, my friend. I have seen cows, horses, cats and humans give birth and I have the same sense of wonderment (is that a word?) every time.
  • Yes I have seen four cats have kittens. One of my cats was so stressed that I had to cut the umbilical cords
  • I've seen a dog giving birth.
  • yes a horse
  • hello, yes,not in person,but on the nature programs on television.the most amazing birth ive ever seen is the birth of a baby giraffe,they fall six feet to the ground!
  • Can't you read the sign
  • Yeah heaps of times. My mums a vet the other day our neighbour needed help with a sheep giving birth. I had to hold the sheep down while she pulled it out. Also, we bought a goat to graze our backyard and it turned out it was pregnant and I saw the kid being born. I grew up on a farm where we bred show cows so i saw heaps of cows being born.
  • i have seen snakes hatch, lizards, kittens, horse, cows, goats, dolphin......a lot
  • Yes i grew up on a farm. I've seen a giraffe,whale,dog,cat,chicken,cow,wolf. I love animals.
  • I've seen cats, dogs, cows, goats, and a donkey give birth. I'm still in awe.
  • I watched a turtle hatch once. :) cute Also a sheep. Which was loud and messy.
  • I raised around Purebred Labradors, Horses, and all types of Animals and also I enjoyed it I have seen so many different Spieces give Birth...
  • Just kittens in real life, but in videos... puppies, a calf, and human (Miracle of Life. Uuugh).
  • Seen heaps on tv, but not in real life.
  • Of course I've seen a cow give birth, but that's the only animal.
  • YES CATS
  • I grew up in a little village, we had tons of cats, and occasionally (like at least 3 times a year) we would have our female cats give birth. It was really interesting and I would stay with the cat for hours watching and helping her deliver her kittens. It was always very rewarding. There was blood and fluids, but that didn't bother me.
  • yeh i have seen a dog,cat,hamster,fish,sheep,cow,horse
  • Yes... I saw a Homo sapien give birth- it was an interesting.
  • Oh yes!! I want to be a Vet... and I went with one to help deliver a calf... it was dead from suffocation since it came out head first instead of feet first and wasn't stopped in time. Since we couldn't push it back in and deliver it the right way, we had to remove it's head, push the body back in, then bring it out feet first. It was amazing. I know it sounds inhumane but the calf was dead for several hours, and the cow was moaning and screaming, obviously in pain, so we did her a real favor since she couldn't successfully deliver.
  • Yes! while out with a picnic one sunny day just outside of Cerne Abbas, we had the chalk giant in view to our front, behind us was a cow in the same field, making a bit of noise, she'd moved quite away from the rest of the cows and looked quite ill, then over a matter of about 20 minutes she gave birth, wonderful.... yes kittens & puppies also!
  • I too have farmed, but prior to that watched, dogs, cats, fish, reptile eggs, insects all give birth of some sort. Nothing like helping a birthing ewe (sheep) have triplets, and all 3 survive. The 'spiritual' moment in birth is worth the effort. the animals do understand you are trying to help ( my opinion) and really the only animal I have not seen in real life is humans.
