Bizarre creature born with features of man and goat
The Daily Telegraph ^ | Sept. 28, 2009

YOU'VE seen them as mythical beasts in the Chronicles of Narnia - now a village has been left shellshocked after the birth of a bizarre faun-like creature with the combined features of a man and a goat.

Bild reports the goat, which died just a few hours after birth in Lower Gweru, Zimbabwe, had a huge head and face which resembled a human as well as goat legs and a tail.

Villagers said the end product was so scary even dogs were afraid to go close to it. They burned the corpse fearing it was an evil sign.

"This is indeed a miracle that has never been witnessed anywhere," elder Themba Moyo said.

The goat's owner called police after the birth.

"It’s the first time that my goat did this. I have 15 goats and it’s this goat that gave me birth to most of them. My goats often give birth to sets of twins," he said.

The Zimbabwe Guardian reports that Midlands Governor and Resident Minister Jason Machaya is adamant the creature is the result of a coupling between man and goat.

They’ve got nothing on us. We have a guy who was born in Kenya and Hawaii at the same time.

THIS cracks me up: "This is indeed a miracle that has never been witnessed anywhere," elder Themba Moyo said. The goat's owner called police after the birth

in other words: "this was SUCH a miracle; we called the police."

I wonder if someone from West Virginia was in the area just before the goat became pregnant.

Isn’t it genetically impossible for this to occur?

You’d think the Congressman from Hollywood would have a friend who could steer him to a good plastic surgeon!
