And now for some weird news out of Asia a Malaysian farmer’s discovery of a strange looking goat with human features has some wondering if the beast is in fact a real life goat-man.
According to multiple reports Ibrahim Basir was shocked when one of his farmhands described a strange kid (baby goat) which had been born from one of his animals.
Upon inspection of the newborn creature the 63-year-old farmer from southern Malaysia became concerned that the animal had a distinctly human look to it.
“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 told The Metro.
The animal – which despite having humanly features did not have an umbilical cord – died shortly after it was born but Mr Basir said he wanted the body to be inspected by experts.“We kept the carcass in a polystyrene box filled with ice cubes before taking it to the district veterinary office at around noon yesterday.”
The strange goat-man hybrid is currently being investigated by Malaysia’s Veterinary Services Department laboratory to determine why the goat may have human-looking features.
Agriculture and Agro-based Industry committee chairman Ismail Mohamed told reporters that examinations would include considering the risk that the mother goat had been sexually interfered with by a human.
“For now we cannot confirm or deny anything as we have never received such a case before,” he told The Star.
“We will have to wait for the results and findings to be finalised and that takes somewhere between two weeks and a month.”
Many online punters are already guessing about how the kid came to be – some suggesting perhaps a real-life fawn or maybe Chewbacca got frisky with some goat folk.
Either way the poor little fella looked like he was too sick to have any chance at survival. He’s the only creature of his kind to be born to one of Mr Basir’s animals.
