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