People in South Africa, panicked over the birth of a lamb that looked a bit like a human.

Villagers feared that they have been cursed and that the creature “was sent by the devil.”

Chief Director of Veterinary Services Dr. Lubabalo Mrwebi confirmed that this was not a hoax, and that the severely deformed lamb was born by a sheep in Lady Frere.

However, the doctor said that the deformed lamb, which resembles a human, was not born due to a man having sex with a sheep.

Mrwebi asked people not to panic and assured villagers that the mother was probably infected by viruses early in the pregnancy, which caused the offspring to resemble a human form, but is not part human.

Doctors believe that the sheep suffered from Rift Valley Fever (RVF virus), which caused its offspring to be born with the deformity. The lamb did not survive.
