A Lamb Born With a Human Face?

I'm not one for far-fetched tales, but this is one of the craziest headlines that I have seen lately! Normally, I make it a priority to check out the day's headlines from my trusty iPhone because that is one of my favorite uses for it. I have a number of different websites saved that I can look at, and I'm especially addicted to checking out social bookmarking sites on my iPhone.

That being said, I am completely freaked out by this sheep that gave birth to a dead lamb that had a human face. Totally shocking! Apparently, a vet removed the dead lamb from the sheep with a cesarean section, and it seemed to have human features. This is a very rare instance, and it seems to be a deformity because the lamb's mother had an excessive intake of vitamin A. Last September, there was a goat in Zimbabwe that gave birth in similar circumstances. This goat baby had a head similar to a human, and it was alive until several villagers killed it because it was so disturbing.

I'm not sure to what to make of all of these circumstances except to be reminded of GoatBoy from SNL. Too soon?
