India: A goat was born with… “a human face” – See the photos

India human face goat

Shocking, paradoxical and probably unique was the spectacle that a farmer saw in India when it was time for his goat to give birth to her young – one of the two newborn goats had a human-looking head!

According to the Daily Mail, the goat of 46-year-old Shakar Das gave birth to two small goats, one of which was 100% healthy, but the second had a human head with eyes, nose and mouth, while it was hairless and had only two legs.

A goat belonging to farmer Shakar Das, 46, gave birth to several offspring in Gangapur village in the northeastern Indian state of Assam, but the second kid (pictured) bowled over locals when it emerged with a swollen, distorted face which resembled a human head.

However, the baby goat could not be kept alive.

In India the birth of a deformed animal is considered a bad omen according to the locals, as a divine warning.

In India, the birth of a deformed animal is considered a bad omen or bad luck, locals said.

Shakar said: “The neighbours rushed to our house. Everyone was left shocked by its appearance.”

Neighbour Rakesh Kumar added: “In many areas, it’s considered as a warning.

Shakar said the goat was born alive despite its considerable deformities, which left it with only two crippled legs and shriveled, under-developed hind quarters, but later died.

“The people see the mutant births as the sign from God.”
