The lamb’s head had the eyes, nose and mouth of a human and only the ears were those of a sheep. and after it was born so the lamb made a number of peculiar grunting noises as it was nuzzled by its more usual looking mother.
Sheep farmer Blasius Lavrentiev about 46 had been expectantly waiting all week for his prized ewe to give birth.
But he had a nasty shock immediately whenever he saw the human-like creature as he was hoping to sell the lambs.
He said: ‘We had quite a tough winter but when I noticed she was pregnant I was delighted as it meant I would be able to sell the lambs and start making some money again. ‘But when I went down to see how it was going I nearly died.’
The shot in Dagestan region of Russia, depicts a farmer showing off a newborn lamb with what appears to be a human face, and went viral over the last 24 to 25 hours after it was posted.
Moreover all eyes immediately turned to Minister Noonan, who quickly assembled a press conference so he could emphatically state that he hasn’t been to Russia in years.
“Minister Noonan would like to state that any resemblance between himself and this lamb is purely coincidental”, a Fine Gael spokesperson stated. “The minister will answer no further questions on the matter, and hopes that everyone will respect his privacy at this time”.
