Experts are puzzled by the reports and photos published in African newspapers.
The creature, which died just a few hours after birth, had a huge head and a face that resembled a severely disfigured baby. The neck and shoulders were much like a small human, but it had goat legs and a tail.
Residents of the village of Maboleni, where a goat gave birth to the creature, burnt the corspe in an attempt to rid the town of a curse.
But local Governor Jason Machaya (56) is sure, that it was a half-man, half-goat hybrid which was the result of bestiality: "A grown man was responsible for this." More pics via bild.de
