Poor Little Lamb


A lamb was born in New Zealand this past week that was so severely deformed that it was set to be put to sleep for it own good, a local newspaper reported.

The poor little creature came out with SEVEN legs – an extra set of front legs and three back legs.

The seven-legged lamb lamb was also hermaphrodite, and was missing a part of its bowel so was unable to pass feces.

It was this latter problem, rather than the fact it had seven legs, that meant the poor little lamb had to be euthanized.

“It’s quite a happy bright wee lamb, he’s just slowly going downhill really,” said a veterinarian that treated the animal. “To keep it alive is probably inhumane really.”

Sweet dreams little guy!
