A goat has died trying to give birth to a mutant kid with eight legs and two heads in Turkey.
Local farmer Remzi Siner said he tried to help the goat during the difficult delivery, and was shocked when it suddenly died. He then cut the goat open and pulled out an eight-legged kid from inside.
The mutant kid died shortly after being cut from its mother’s tummy.
The shocking incident took place in the neighbourhood of Sarisakal in the south-eastern Turkish city of Adana on 8th December.
The female goat belonged to Siner, age not disclosed, who is the headman of Sarisakal and works as a livestock breeder.
Siner said: “I was looking forward to my pregnant goat giving birth.
“When she could not give birth, I tried to help her but I wasn’t unable to.”
After the mother goat died, he hoped to save the kid and was shocked by what he found.
He said: “I cut open my goat’s belly and removed the kid. It had eight legs and two heads. It’s the first time I’ve seen anything like this in my life.”
He added that he believed it was a warning message from God, but does not fully understand its meaning yet.
The farmer also said that the mother goat has been butchered for its meat.
He confirmed: “I slaughtered the goat, I will eat it. We have no other choice.”
