Deformed Lamb From Eastern Cape Resembling Human Features Is Not A Hoax! 

June 21, 2017

Photographs of a deformed lamb have been circulated via Whatsapp showing the lamb to have human like features.
It has been confirmed that this is not a hoax!

The deformed lamb came from a sheep that had given birth in the Eastern Cape.

The Eastern Cape Department of Rural Development and Agrarian Reform has confirmed the authenticity of the pictures saying it was of a deformed stillborn lamb in the Lady Frere area.

“We call on the local community not to panic over this deformed lamb. We can confirm that this deformed lamb is not a progeny of  sheep ovum and a human sperm.

“Virus infections in early stages of pregnancy may infect the foetus and lead to the development of malformations in the growing foetus. It is likely that this is what happened to the Lady Frere sheep,” Mrwebi said.

“The gestation period for a sheep is five months.This means that this particular sheep conceived in late December 2016 or early January 2017, which was warm with plentiful rainfall in the Chris Hani district, conditions which are favourable to the proliferation of mosquitoes and midges known to be the vectors of viruses that cause such diseases such as the Rift Valley Fever (RVF).”

He said it was “fair to assume” the animal was infected by the RFV virus.

“The resultant circulation of the virus in the blood found its way through the maternal blood into the uterus and the foetus, which was at a very critical stage of development,” Mrwebi said.

“The infected foetus then, as a result, failed to form properly, leading to the deformity that it became.”

Some people have come out with some conspiracy theories as to what caused the deformation etc… all of which are just pure nonsense.
