Lamb has face of an “angry old man”

In the Russian village Chirka all eyes are currently focused on a … lamb. The animal was born with a ‘human face’, the neighbor is even talks of an “angry old man with a big nose”.

The farmer in question could not believe his eyes when he made the strange discovery. “We have a fairly heavy winter behind us”, said Blaise Lavrentiev. “I was happy with the pregnancy, due to the sale of the lambs, I could earn some money again. When I saw the result, I was really surprised. It looked like an old guy with a hairy face was staring at me. Her parents look normal, I have no idea how this could happen.” According to local vet, the deviation is due to an overdose of vitamin A that the farmer gave to the mother.

The lamb itself has now become the attraction of the village. The local circus even offers ten times the normal price in order to make use of its services. “Whatever the cause may be, it is a sweetheart and will certainly not end up on the dinner table. That circus might be a good solution, but first she will remain with me for a while”, concludes Lavrentiev.
