Goat born with human face: farmer denies all

Ibrahim Basir, 63, a Malaysian farmer, just had the shock of his bucolic life: his favorite goat gave birth to a baby that had what appeared to be a human face, and the body of a goat. Basir claims to be at a loss as to why this happened.

Some Felda village locals claim the creature is a fawn--a mythical fusion of goat and human. The village is in southern Malaysia where anything that happens on farms is possible.

Unfortunately for the goat, and fortunately for Ibrahim, the baby fawn died and its body given to the Veterinary Services to determine who the father might be.

The villagers offered Basir money for the carcass, and some offered money to spend quality time with the mother, but so far he refused all offers.

Basir first learned of the goat's birth by his farmhand, Jamaludin Abdul Samad, 50, and also quite a lonely guy. 

"When I went to check, I was quite shocked but fascinated too as its face, nose, short legs and even the condition of its soft body seemed like that of a human baby, whereas the light brown fur covering its whole body resembles that of a goat," Basir told Mirror UK

However, the goat didn't have an umbilical cord.

The possibility that the goat was sired by a human is extremely small; at least that's what some Malaysian farmers claim.
