Surely this has to be an April 1st related story?
A Chinese farmer claims one of his Ewe’s has given birth to a dog, a SheepDog! He said he found it while herding his sheep, it has a dogs face, nose, ears and even its feet look like paws!
Vets say it’s impossible – but to Chinese farmer Liu Naiying his birth is a miracle.
For Mr Liu insists one of his sheep has given birth to a dog
The ‘puppy’ has wool like a lamb but its mouth, nose, eyes, paws and tail look more like a dog’s.
His ‘sheep dog’ even plays like a hound.
The birth has prompted thousands to flock to his farm in Shaanxi Province to see for themselves.
Mr Liu told how he found the unusual baby animal shortly after it was born in one of his fields.
‘I was herding the sheep, and saw a sheep licking her newborn lamb on the grassland. The lamb was still wet,’ he said.
‘When I went up close to check on the lamb I was shocked because it looked so weird, like a cross between a sheep and a dog.
I’m understandable skeptical on this one — it has an April Fools Joke feel too it, but we’re several days away from my favourite day of the year. Could it be just a strange looking lamb? A strange looking puppy or so kind of evolutionary leap! Self herding sheep?
