India’s One-eyed Goat Turns Heads
Posted on November 6, 2012
Mother Nature never fails to amaze us. Just when you thought you have seen everything, she presents you another marvel.
Take this one-eyed goat, for example.
The goat was born in Perundurai, Erode, India. Its owner, Kandasamy, said that in his 10 years of breeding goats, this is the first time he has encountered this.
“I have never witnessed such an incident in the past. A female goat gave birth to two calves, one of whom has just one eye right in the center of its forehead.”
According to Dr. K. Asokan, Coimbatore VOC Park Zoo‘s director, the goat’s unusual appearance was caused by a genetic disorder.
“It’s rare to see such goats in the villages,” Dr. Asokan said.
