Sheep Gives Birth To Human-Faced Lamb

From Australia’s dailytelegraph.com:

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

Erhan Elibol, a vet, performed a caesarean on the animal to take the lamb out, but was horrified to see that the features of the lamb’s snout bore a striking resemblance to a human face.

“I’ve seen mutations with cows and sheep before. I’ve seen a one-eyed calf, a two-headed calf, a five-legged calf. But when I saw this youngster I could not believe my eyes. His mother could not deliver him so I had to help the animal,” the 29-year-old veterinary said.

The lamb’s head had human features on – the eyes, the nose and the mouth – only the ears were those of a sheep.

Vets said that the rare mutation most likely occurred as a result of improper mutation since the fodder for the lamb’s mother was abundant with vitamin A, CNNTurk.com reports.

    “Vets said the mutation most likely occured as a result of improper mutation…” (let me pause for moment to say…a DUHHHHH!!! o_O) “since the lamb's fodder was abundant in Vit A.”

    Excessive Vit. A causing deformities I'VE HEARD OF…but the kind of deformities that would stay within the realm of that species. I.E. developing a missing or an extra (or a malformed) appendage or organ, but NEVER one where they develop features of another species…Uh…*scratches head* There's only one logical conclusion, if you can call it that…someone boned a sheep….So THAT'S why the bible says it's wrong to bang animals *lmao*

    Wow…a REAL LIFE “sheeple”….Whodathunkit? *lmao* I guess MANBEARPIG from South Park isn't so farfetched an idea after all! *LMAO*

  4. Yes there was another instance in bestiality between man and pig. And the specimen was named Mohammed…
