A farming community has been left stunned after a goat gave birth to a 'half-pig half-human' creature.
There are fears the creature was cursed and could bring the bad luck to the family with some even claiming the creature could be a 'mutant devil'.
Josephine Repique, 40, said the pregnant goat went on this month on November 2 at the small farm in Sultan Kudarat, the Philippines.
The two babies had to be removed by cesarean section but onlookers quickly realized something was not right.
There were shrieks of horror when one of the strange-looking animals emerged from the goat.
Josephine said the baby "looked like a pig, with a mix of human".
The small fur-less animal even had a naval – just like a tiny human, reports the Mirror.
She said: "We were shocked, we could not explain how all our neighbors flocked into our house to get a good look."
Sadly, the two infants and the mother goat all died, sparking fears that the creature was a cursed "mutant devil" that brought bad luck.
Josephine added: "Nobody knows what it is, but it's not a goat." We're all wondering why it happened and if it is bad luck. "
Dr. Agapita Salces of the Institute of Animal Science of the University of Philippines said the foetus appeared to have suffered a genetic mutation in the womb.
He added: "It is also possible that the mother contracted a disease called Rift Valley Fever from mosquito bites and this caused the impaired development of the infant."
