A sheep in Turkey gave birth to a lamb that shocked the world.
The lamb had eyes, nose and mouth - like a human.
The story is originally from 2010, but now the image of the lamb has again started to circulate on social media sites.
The stillborn lamb was born in a village near the city of Izmir in Turkey.
The veterinarian, Erhan Elibol, was forced to perform a caesarean on a sheep that could not manage to give birth normally.
He was shocked when he saw the lamb's face, which looked exactly like a human face.
- I've seen mutations in cows and sheep before. I have seen a one-eyed lamb, a two-headed lamb, a lamb with five legs. But when I saw this lamb I could not believe my eyes, says the 29-year-old veterinarian to CNNTurk.com.
The governor of the province where the lamb was born, was convinced that it was the fruit of an abnormal relationship between the sheep and human.
- It's the first time I see something so evil. It's really embarrassing. The head looks like a man and the body as of a goat. It is clear that a person is guilty. Evil forces have led the person to lose self-control, he said.
The mutated lamb was hairless, and according to the villagers even the dogs were afraid of the bizarre animal.
The villagers burned the body. Biologists therefore never got the chance to study the rare mutation.
