I just read an article today about a goat that gave birth to an abnormality today in Africa. The body was that of a goat, but the head was nothing like a goat! It was, instead a head resembling a child with hydrocephalus, or water on the brain. It died shortly after birth, and the carcass was burned, as it was considered a child of evil... Authorities are pretty sure that this is the result of a human man hooking up with the goat, although, nothing like this has ever happened before. What's going on here? goat-man...mothman...chupacabra...bigfoot...nessie...are these hidden species making an emergence?

Wow that is crazy. Do you know where I can see photos? Is this really real or a made up story they made? Some people make up stories online. Thanks.

I'm assuming that this came out of the tabloids and not a respectable news source. For those who aren't aware, it is absolutely, 100 percent impossible for a human and a goat to produce offspring together. Even if millions of men had relations with millions of goats, it would not happen even once. Human DNA and goat DNA are incompatible. If the event described in this story even happened, the baby goat likely had a massive deformity that happened to cause the head to look somewhat similar to a human head. Maybe the snout was missing so that it had a flat face. Whatever it was, it certainly was not the result of a goat/human hybrid.

Actually, it was released first in a national newspaper from Zimbabwe. No tabloid release, although I can almost see a million stemming stories that will be picked up by someone in the world who wants to embellish the truth. A picture is available online. I'm not sure if we're allowed to post links to other websites, else I would post it right here. Definitely weird looking...recommend reading the whole story before drawing a conclusion on this... The animal had very little fur, leaving it with a human like skin appearance. Says even dogs wouldn't go near it, which also was highly abnormal. I dunno what to think...just a very weird story altogether...

Well this one is a tough one. I'm not really into science but it could be an abnormal development. But if it is possible to fuse human and goat DNA then wow that would be amazing and sad. It makes you wonder about mythology doesn't it. Then again science is full of weak links. Just when you think something is fact something pops up and gives birth to new theories. Did you know that from observing space scientists are beginning to doubt the laws of gravity. Just imagine if gravity can be doubted then genetics could be as well.

If we know about half human and half animal, it also found in the past. The species is not hidden, it just don't want to be see by other species. I see in the newspaper, this species know they parents and love them. It was true, someone has pick the picture even technology can be fake. God making a special creature, that makes people do evolution.

A half man and half goat is called a faun in myth and legend stories, I believe. In my country recently a pig was born with the head of an elephant but I only heard of it and there was also a goat born with a human head. But this is all rumour, I've never actually seen any of these weird occurances. But should I see it, I think it would scare me.

That sounds horrific, Maybe it was just a very deformed goat, but who knows? Sounds pretty horrid to me :(

One very important lesson I have learned over the years is that mankind knows very little about anything. So called scientists make claims about things they have no real proof of, and theories get turned into facts, and spread around. Is it possible that someone banged a goat, and ended up with Dr. Phil? Yeah its very possible. But no one knows for sure. Could have just been a diseased animal. Humans are considered animals, and animals of different breeds can mate, and reproduce. Many animals today are the result of crossbreeding. One that still puzzles many is the platypus. wtf is that?

personally for me to see is to believe. Tabloids today will invent any sorts of stories just to sell. I'm not saying that it's all false. Maybe the goat have been experimented on. But until it's not proven or I can't see enough evidence of it I would say it's not true. Good day to you. :)
