The Crazy News: Shot of the Week

A leg for every day of the week.

When farmer Dave Callaghan was walking the green pastures of his farm near the town of Ashburton on New Zealand’s south island, he got the shock of a lifetime when he realized that one of his little lambs had 3 more legs than usual.

“I have never seen anything like that,” said Dave in a deep Kiwi accent.

Vets believe the lambs condition is a result of an error during embryo formation, which meant he was born a polydactyl – or with many legs, and occurs in one in every few million.

The animal is also a hermaphrodite and missing some of its bowel, and it will have to be put down.

A wee lamb

“To keep it alive is probably inhumane really,” was a vets assesment.

“It’s quite a happy bright wee lamb, he’s just slowly going downhill really,”

Poor fella.

See the original article HERE.

Note: I see now that CNN has picked up this story, I was trying to think of a creative headline for this one for some time, but this takes the cake…

“Lamb with 7 legs faces the chop”

Oh CNN, your so funny….

Speaking of New Zealanders and meat… Have you read the story about Vegans refusing to have sexual relations with meat eaters?
