A farmer was stunned when one of her goats gave birth to a strange “half pig, half human” creature.
Josephine Repique, 40, said the pregnant goat went into labor earlier this month on a small farm in Sultan Kudarat, Philippines.
A healthy baby had to be removed by caesarean section, but when the other strange thing appeared, screams of fear broke out.
The small hairless animal has shiny, pale pink fur and pig-like feet.
The little hairless animal is significantly larger than its sibling and has bright light pink fur, pig’s trotters, and even a tiny human-like belly button.
Ms. Repique said that the baby “looked like a pig, with a mixture of human”.
She said: ‘We were shocked.
Unfortunately, the mother goat and her two newborn goats died, sparking rumors that the creature was a cursed “mutant devil” that brought bad luck.
The pink creature is much bigger than its brother and even had a belly button, just like a little human.
Ms. Repique said that the baby, who sadly died at birth, “looked like a pig, mixed with human.”
Ms Repique added: ‘No one knows what it is, but it is not a goat.
But experts believe that the goat suffered a genetic mutation in the womb.
According to Dr. Agapita Salces of the University of the Philippines Institute of Animal Sciences, the fetus appeared to have experienced a genetic abnormality in the pregnancy.
And he added: ‘It is a possible case of genetic mutation.
Fears were unleashed among the neighbors that the creature was a cursed ‘mutant devil’, however, scientists believe it is a genetic mutation.
