A small village in Poland, Miejsce Odrzanskie, has not had a male born in it for almost a decade, which has created a situation where nobody really knows what could be wrong.
The mayor, Krystyna Zydziak, of the village is also offering to give out rewards to anybody who may have information on the missing males in the village, New York Times reports.
According to reports, attention was beamed on the village when it could not find a male to send to a regional competition for young volunteer firefighters.
There is a general concern in the village as some of their government officials even seek scientific help to explain why the situation is the way it is.
Another mayor a part of the village, Rajmund Frischko, also said that doctors have been reaching out to him on ways to conceive to a boy.
“Some scientists have expressed interest in examining why only girls have been born here. I also have doctors calling me from all over the country with tips on how to conceive a boy," he said.
The mayor said he has spoken to a doctor who told him that a retired doctor has been able to connect not having a male child to a woman’s diet.
It should be noted that there have been 12 births in the village since the last time a male baby born in the pastoral community.
The situation has made girls taking up chores that boy would normally do like driving tractors as villagers are more concerned about who will take farming duties.
“We have hardly any boys on the team, but we have been winning major competitions in Poland ever since we were founded six years ago,” a resident said.
However, further investigations by YEN.com.gh reveals that the village has a population of 328 and coincidentally has one birth per year during the nearly 10-year period.
