Skip to comments.Argentina’s farm of horrors: Latest shocking animal mutation discovered
Posted on 03/09/2018 7:03:23 PM PST by Gamecock
The discovery was made when the piglet was spotted next to its mother after she gave birth to eight young in the rural area of Santo Domingo in Santiago del Estero Province in northern Argentina.
However, the human-like piglet died a few hours later due to breathing difficulties.
Pig and goat breeders Walter Oscar Velez and wife Roxana Noemi Villarreal, who also produce charcoal at their farm, said that they are at a loss for an explanation.
It is the latest in a number of horrific mutations in the country which is at the centre of a row over the use of pesticides and genetically modified foods.
Other recent cases include a goat born with two heads in the same province, a calf with two heads and six legs in the north-eastern province of Entre Rios, a goat with a human baby's face in the centre of the country and a real-life spider pig born with eight legs in El Galpon in north-eastern Argentina.
Some people believe environmental pollution plays a role in the animals peculiar appearance and untimely deaths.
Pharmacologist and paediatric specialist Dr Medardo Avila Vazquez said: "Around 12 million Argentines live in regions where soybeans are cultivated, surrounded by the fields where glyphosate is sprayed.
"In the province of Chaco, where soybeans are grown, we found the numbers of deformations quadrupled in a 10 year period, in the same timeframe the cultivation of soybean increased seven times. I see children dying all the time at the clinic where I work."

Explanation? Any Muslim refugee males in the area?
Wait!? There really is a spider pig?
I don’t think there was any ‘human intervention’ here.
This poor little piggy was simply not done being formed.
Even it’s eyes are still liquified and unfinished.
I have seen other strange livestock that is alarmingly human like.
One day, someone will write a novel about a farm animal with completely human consciousness.
That is likely to be a very sad story ( knowingly walking the earth while encased in a wiry, dirty pelt that never comes off) but it doesn’t have to be.
H. G. Welles came close to doing that.
DHMO is a thoroughly dangerous material. Gaseous DHMO causes severe burns. DHMO is associated with destructive hurricanes. And that’s just the start of the problems with this stuff.
Where’s Henry Waxman been lately?
It's already been done. Check out "Sirius", by Olaf Stapledon.
I’ll have to look that story up.
Does whatever a Spider-Pig does. . .
I want to see a photo of the farmer.
The piglet had a somewhat rare birth defect called cyclopia. According to the Wikipedia entry, this occurs in about 1/16,000 births or 1/200 miscarriages.
Cyclopsia can be caused by ingesting a toxic plant, Veratrum californicum (common names: corn lily, false hellebore). I do not think that this is the only cause of cyclopsia, but it is the most common cause in livestock. Pregnant women have caused this defect in their infants by ingesting “natural remedies” for nausea.
The birth defect has been observed throughout history. I believe that it is the source of the cyclops legends.
This birth defect is always lethal.
