In Eastern Province of South Africa, a sheep gave birth to a creature that looked like ‘Half-Human Half-Beast”. Villagers have been living in fear as it was said by elders that creature like this was sent by the devil. They were convinced that cruelty and witchcraft had led to the birth of this creature.

Experts from Eastern Cape Department of Rural Development were sent out to carry out tests. According to The Sun, Chief Director of Veterinary Services Dr. Lubabalo Mrwebi said: “We can confirm this not a hoax photo but that the severely deformed lamb was born by a sheep in Lady Frere this week which at a glance resembles a human form.”
“It is not however human but a deformed stillborn lamb sired by a sheep and was subsequently infected by a Rift Valley Fever at an early stage of its pregnancy.”
According to the doctor, the sheep was infected by the RVF virus. The virus in the blood went into the ureters and the fetus. Therefore, the fetus failed to form properly.
A villager was quoted as saying: “The elders when they saw it said it was sent by the devil and was born after a coupling between a man and a sheep and then there was panic. Many people are afraid and will not be happy until it is burned.”
