The bizarre act had also stunned the goat’s owner, who claimed to have witnessed it for the first time.

“The neighbours rushed to our house. Everyone was left shocked by its appearance resembling a human baby,” said Shakar.

“The goat had already given birth to a kid. It was her second delivery. It has stunned me and the villagers as well,” he added.

“They were excited to see goat given birth to a female kid. They’re a bit disappointed, but it is what it is. She was alive at birth before dying.”

Later, the kid’s body was buried leaving the family upset and confused.

In India, the birth of a malformed animal or human is considered a terrible omen or a sign of bad luck for its owners.

“In many areas, it’s considered as the warning. The people see the mutant births as the sign from God,” Rakesh Kumar, a local said.

Local vet Fayyaz Ahmed said goats are more susceptible when it comes to mutant births.

“The impaired development of the kid in the womb is likely caused by the Rift Valley fever disease. There could be other possibilities as well which led to a genetic mutation,” he added.

“It’s advice that the farmers should take their animals to veterinarians for detailed check-ups,” he added.

It comes after the remnants of one of the ocean’s earliest giants were discovered in one of the world’s driest areas.

The Cymbospondylus youngorum measured 60 feet (17 meters) from nose to tail and weighed more than 40 tons, making it comparable to today’s largest whales
