Local veterinarians predicted that the baby goat will die within a few days but so far it has survived beyond their expectations. It has become a major tourist attraction in the village with scores or visitors arriving to get a glimpse of the animal.

In addition to the development of one eye, cyclopia can also cause deformities in the nose and mouth. Animals and humans born with one eye rarely survive to adulthood due to ailments caused by physical abnormalities.

    So sad that we have put so much toxic crap out in our world that this is what happends to the animals.

  18. Alinne Mahlke says:

    I wish people were taking care of this baby instead of photographing it. Eye drops, physical-therapy for the walking, among other things… but sadly, this is not happening. Sending love and light to this little one, hoping it’ll cope the best it can with this life as far as it goes before it finally rests.

    Be humane and put it out of its misery.
