When Malaysian farmer Ibrahim Basir’s business partner informed him he needed to check on his herd of goats last Friday, Ibrahim got the surprise of his life.
One of the females had given birth and the newborn kid was dead, possibly trampled by its mother. Disappointing, but that was not the surprise.
It was the baby goat’s face … and legs … and body. There was something eerily human about its appearance.
“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 a human baby, but the light brown fur covering its whole body resembles that of a goat,” Ibrahim, 63, told Straits Times.
Despite its human features, the kid did not have an umbilical cord.
