The dead body of a baby goat resembling a human child has been found in Malaysia and handed over to the Veterinary Services Department for further examination.
Apparently, the kid was born to a goat belonging to settler Ibrahim Basir, who is from Felda Sungai Mas in Malaysia's state of Johor. The man was rather surprised when he discovered his goat had given birth to a weird creature.
At first, Basir and his business partner weren't sure what kind of carcass they had, as it looked so much like a cross between a human and kid goat. The cause of death is not certain but it is suspected that either the mother trampled it, or certain complications during birth prevented the kid from surviving.
"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," Basir's partner Jamaludin Abdul Samad said.
Although people even offered to pay the pair for the carcass, they decided to hand it over to authorities so they could look into the kid.
Such strange creatures are quite uncommon, and although one cannot determine the reason behind their bizarre looks, hopefully the Malaysian authorities will be able to glean something from their investigation.
