Freaky news: Human-faced lamb born in turkey

Click here if you want to see the photo of it. I'm too wigged-out by it to post here. Consider yourself duly warned.

The story also cites a human-faced goat that was born in Zimbabwe a few months ago. The goat lived for a few hours before frightened villagers killed it (and the governor of the province it was born in insists that it was the result of a human man having sex with a female goat).

Crazy stuff, no doubt. But it does make me consider that perhaps all those stories we've heard about in classic mythology, like the Minotaur etc., might have been inspired by real-life examples of mutation.
