And You Thought Rudolph Had It Rough: 8-Legged Goat Born In Croatia

May 9, 2014


This is an eight-legged goat recently born to a farmer in Croatia. For reference, that is two more legs than normal. "Try four." What are you, some kind of goat expert?

Nicknamed "octogoat," the baby also had both male and female reproductive organs, leading local vets to believe that the newborn's condition was a result of an under-developed twin, ITV reported today.

"I counted his legs and I thought I was seeing things. Then I called my neighbor to make sure that I am not crazy," farmer Zoran Paparic told inSerbia.

Paparic says he plans to keep the goat as a pet if it survives, and not sell it to a traveling sideshow like I would. When life hands you mutant goats, make a dollar from the bearded lady -- that's my motto. Jk jk, it's, "I swear, officer, I've never seen that in my life."

Thanks to oblyvaeon, who just sent an angry email to Mother Nature but it got returned because Mother Nature doesn't computer. I just sent her a case of defoliant marked "Leaf and Bark Scrub".

  • Matty Spinny

    This goat's mother was a bisexual male shapeshifting pagan god who banged a goat.

    To protect his identity we shall refer to him as "goatfucker" This was some kind of desperate last bid to delay its owner from building a wall because he needed the father goat to haul stone(the gods wanted to push him past the deadline so they could welch on the payment like assholes (and also like assholes blamed their difficulty in doing so on [goatfucker] for basically no reason and pressured him to fuck said goat in the first place, and then being even further assholes than that they just straight up lynched the contractor anyway because racism making [goatfucker]'s bestiality all for naught))

    As the product of the union between mortal and god this goat shall grow to a mighty steed able to run through space and time and probably alternate dimensions in addition to a mundane goat's innate supernatural climbing abilities.

    Ridiculous, how could you possibly know that ... unless you are some kind of prophet of the gods! TEACH ME.

    have you accepted thor as your savior? do you vow to smite trees and tall metal poles in his name?

  • dredwolff

    Hah! Good to know I'm not the only one who thought "Hey, that reminds me of Sleipnir!"

    So what you're saying is that Goat Simulator needs an update.
