A mutant goat with eyes in the middle of its forehead has been found on a Turkish farm.
Ahmet Kartal, 40, a livestock farmer, said he had been raising animals for 25 years in the village of Gokmusa, in the province of Kilis, and had never seen anything like the one-eyed goat.
He explained that he went to check on his animals and noticed that a baby goat had been born.
When he took a closer look at the newly-born animal, he saw that the eyes of the livestock were firmly planted right in the centre of its forehead, like a cyclops, the fearsome beast from Greek mythology.
Kartal said: “I shuddered when I first saw the kid in the barn when I went to check on it. It did not make a sound, but when I took the photo, I felt like the kid was watching me.
“I’ve been doing this job for 25 years. It’s the first time I’ve encountered anything like this. I have never seen or heard of such a thing.
“People who see it are also surprised.
“I cannot deal with it, I want the authorities to take it away and keep it alive.”
