The animal was waiting to be recognised as the world’s smallest cow by the Guinness Book of Records

The world’s smallest cow "Rani" died on Thursday due to "excessive gas accumulated in its stomach".

“The cow fell ill two days ago. It was taken to Savar upazila health center at around 11 am today and the on-duty doctor declared it dead at 12pm,” said Savar livestock officer Sajedul Islam.

The dwarf cow of the Boxer Bhutti breed, grew up in a farm at Savar’s Charigram near capital Dhaka.

The cow stood just 51cm (20 inches) high, and weighed 28kg.

It was waiting to be recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the world's smallest cow.

The cow turned into a celebrity since its news first broke on the newspapers back in July and hundreds of visitors began flocking to the farm to catch a glimpse of it.

The title for the world's smallest cow has been held officially by Manikyam, in neighbouring India, which measures 61.1cm from the hoof to the withers.
