File this one under "gross".
I normally wouldn't waste your time, and mine, with a story like this, but there are some elements that I just found too interesting, and funny to pass up. Your forgiveness please.
It seems that in the city of Izmir, Turkey, a dead baby lamb was removed from it's mother with a human face by a rather shocked local vet.
Erhan Elibol, the vet who removed the calf to save it's mothers life explains, “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.”
As you can see from the above photo, this lamb's face and snout have been mutated to the point that it resembles a human face.
Elibol believes that this rare mutation came about from the mother ingesting large amounts of vitamin A, which was found in the animals stool.
In this case, the mutated animal was born dead, but last year in Zimbabwe another such mutated sheep was delivered alive, and lived for a few hours, until the frighted villagers killed it.
Now here's where this story takes a humorous turn. Check out what the governor of the Turkish province where this event took place had to say.
"This incident is very shocking. It is my first time to see such an evil thing. It is really embarrassing," he reportedly said. "The head belongs to a man while the body is that of a goat. This is evident that an adult human being was responsible. Evil powers caused this person to lose self control. We often hear cases of human beings who commit bestiality but this is the first time for such an act to produce a product with human features."
Yes, the obviously highly educated governor believes that bestiality is to blame for the mutation.
If only those horny shepherds would keep it in their pants then we wouldn't have abominations to God like this......right?
True, over the eons, desperate individuals have had 'unholy' encounters with sheep and the like, but that isn't what caused this gross deformity.
Wouldn't you be embarrassed if you voted for this guy?
After probably being influenced by their overly superstitious leader, the local residents burned the body of the deformed sheep before scientists could examine it.
Well of course they had to get rid of it or their town could have been cursed for centuries. It may have stopped raining, causing the crops to die, or children may have started being born with sheep heads or something.
You just can't mess around with this kind of evil.
What if the thing brought about the dreaded "Planet of the Sheep?"
Okay, I gotta stop this or will keep going all day.
