Sheep Gives Birth to a Dead Lamb With a Human-Like Face

Be warned, this is one of those things you can not 'unsee'. It is not clear how such a creature came to be. A vet thinks it is a result of improper nutrition, while the governor thinks a similar incident was the result of a man 'getting it on' with a goat. We are unlikely to ever have a final answer as the locals burned the body of the mutated creature.

"A sheep gave birth to a dead lamb with a human-like face. The calf was born in a village not far from the city of Izmir, Turkey.

Erhan Elibol, a vet, performed Cesarean section on the animal to take the calf out, but was horrified to see that the features of the calf’s snout bore a striking resemblance to a human face.
Veterinaries said that the rare mutation most likely occurred as a result of improper nutrition since the fodder for the lamb’s mother was abundant with vitamin A, reports.

In Zimbabwe, a goat gave birth to a similar youngster in September 2009. The mutant baby born with a human-like head stayed alive for several hours until the frightened village residents killed him.

The governor of the province where the ugly goat was born said that the little goat was the fruit of unnatural relationship between the female goat and a man.
The locals burnt the body of the little goat, and biologists had no chance to study the rare mutation.
