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

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".
