A goat born with the face of a human baby has caused mayhem in a Malaysian village, as locals began a bidding war to desperately tried to buy the goat from the farmer it belonged to.
The newborn goat did not survive long enough after it was born, but sadly that did not stop people from wanting to buy the carcass of the animal they referred to as a “fawn” – a mythical hybrid of goat and animal.
Yahoo News reports:
Farmer Ibrahim Basir refused all cash offers after the goat was born on his property in Felda, Malaysia, instead choosing to hand it over to the Veterinary Services Department so it could be studied.
Ibrahim told local media he was shocked when he found out that one of his goats had given birth to a kid that had the features of a human baby.
He said: “When I went to check, I was quite shocked but fascinated too as its face, nose, short legs and even the condition of its soft body seemed like that of a human baby, whereas the light brown fur covering its whole body resembles that of a goat.”
He added: “We kept the carcass in a polystyrene box filled with ice cubes before taking it to the district veterinary office at around noon yesterday.”
Ibrahim thinks the animals looks were a result of being trampled by its mother.
