GUWAHATI: In a strange turn of events, a goat in Assam's Cachar district gave birth to a human-like baby, leaving everyone surprised.
The goat was stillborn, but many people were astonished by its looks similar to a human progeny. The incident occurred in Gangapur village, which is part of Assam's Dholai Vidhan Sabha constituency.

From various parts of India, where livestock animals, particularly the Cow, Buffalo, and Goat, produced deformed children with human-like faces and appearances. People in such situations are superstitious, believing that the delivery of such offspring is due to some sort of divine intervention. They begin to perform puja and rituals for these children. People believe that human-animal intercourse can result in such humanoid cattle offspring in some cases.
The developing fetus in the mother's womb collects fluid in various regions and organs of the body, including the face, in this biological condition. As a result, the fetus's face and limbs are swallowed, giving him a human infant-like look.
