Mutant Six-Legged Sheep

A stunned shepherd has shown off a mutant, six-legged lamb born to a ewe on his farm in Turkey.

The other-worldly newborn arrived in Bayirkonagi – a village in Cinar, Diyarbakir Province – earlier this month (February 2023).

Shepherd Salih Karacadag was left speechless when he saw the bizarre beast for the first time.

The mutant lamb – which netizens say resembles a gigantic spider – is unable to walk or even stand up.

Footage filmed by Salih shows it moving its head and two of its multiple legs but nothing else.

The fate of the newborn is unclear, but animals born with deformities commonly die shortly after birth due to complications.
