A sheep in Turkey has given birth to a dead lamb with a human-like face thought to be the result of a rare mutation.

A vet performed a caesarean to free to lamb who stated that he'd never seen anything like it before, the facial features were almost completely human-like aside from the ears.

"A sheep gave birth to a dead lamb with a human-like face."

ted nugent will probably buy it and put it with that white buffalo he paid 250k for a few years back. If he was still around, Michael Jackson would have out bid him.

I have to admit, I laughed when I saw this picture. It looks funny, and I think it looks a bit photoshopped. Biologically speaking, this kind of thing is not really supposed to be possible without "help". The base pairs don't match up, so you can have all the adult type fun you want to with your sheep (I am not saying you should) and you would probably (exempting genetic manipulation of course) never get an animal human hybrid. Now, I am not saying it's impossible, but it would require genetic manipulation, or mutation of some kind to do this. This picture though, IMHO is fake.

Freaky! If it is true, and not photo-shopped, there seems to be a vast increase in mutated animals lately?

Inter-species mixing? Still sad...

Same as the last few times these things wind up in the news, it's a genetic malformation. Not interspecies mixing, not aliens, just genes going blah.

Also you throw in the fact the sheep was born dead via C-section, so it probably was stuck in the birth canal too long, which also misshaped the facial structure.
