Mysuru: Nature has its own way, it is one of those not so common creations by nature. On Monday, a goat at the Solapur hamlet in H.D. Kote taluk in Karnataka has given birth to two stillborn kids with a striking resemblance to a human face.
The goat gave birth to a first human-like still-born kid at around 6.30 am. Five hours later it delivered another kid, this time a female.
Observers say that nearly 70 per cent of the features are human-like. The eyes, nose and mouth resemble that of a human baby. Even the limbs are like that of a human. Only ears and foot were those of a goat.
The owner of the goat, Bhaskar in utter amazement said he has been rearing the goat for four years and she has delivered around 10 babies till now, all of them born normal.
Deputy Director of animal husbandry Dr Devadas said, “In medical terms, the condition in is called fetal anasarta, means the baby body filled with excessive fluids. This happens due to a genetic disorder or infection.” The two still-born baby goats will be preserved and exhibited at the Mysore Dasara Exhibition, he added.
The incident became talk of the town instantly.
His house has been drawing hundreds of visitors ever since. Fearing that the birth of such goats would bring a bad omen, some of his neighbors asked Bhaskar to dispose off the obnoxious born.
