Octogoat, the Goat with 8 Legs (Video)

Octogoat with its owner,
Zoran Paparic
It's been a long time since I last posted about a strangely deformed animal. So, today I want to present you the story of "Octogoat", a goat that as you have probably guessed was born with 8 legs.

The octogoat was born in May 2014, on a farm in Kutjevo, in northeast Croatia.

"I counted his legs and I thought I was seeing things. Then I called my neighbour to make sure that I am not crazy." said Zoran Paparic's, owner of the farm.

The poor creature not only had 8 legs but it also possessed both male and female reproductive organs. 

According to local veterinarians, the extra parts are most probably the remains of an underdeveloped conjoined twin.

"Everything is double with him. He is trying to stand on his feet, but lacks strength. Sarka, which I have had for three years, gave birth to a miracle of nature. This is her fourth time and she always has triplets." said Paparic.

In the video down below you can see both the octogoat and Mr. Paparic:

When the story first hit the news, the vets said that Octogoat was unlikely to survive for more than a few days. But Paparic said he would gladly keep the animal as a pet if it managed to survive.

Unfortunately, there hasn't been an update since then and the fate of Octogoat remains unknown...
