    Sheep With Human Face: Human Faced Lamb Supposedly Born in Turkey

    I'm reminded of the show Daria and the show-within-a-show clips for "Sick Sad World" that would always come on Daria's TV.

    Certain news sites are reporting that in Turkey, a sheep gave birth to a stillborn lamb with strikingly human facial features. I've never heard of the possibility of anything but the worst kind of porn being the product bestiality.

    We may never know if this was the real deal, because the locals burned the dead lamb-baby before scientists could examine it.

    When I saw that Weekly World News was one of the earliest reporters of the story, I was inclined not to believe it. But in truth, WWN doesn't ONLY make stuff up. They do sometimes publish verifiable news if the stories are strange enough. And this, if true, would seem to fit the bill.

    It was actually (as far as I can tell) the Russian news website Pravda that broke the story first.

    Based on the thread title, I expected to see a pic of Bob in cutoff jeans.

    I'd find it hard to believe it could be born with fully formed adult face like that.
    My vote: Hoax.

    No biology degree holders here I suppose? Syphillus comes from sheep. On a related note, you can track the spread of syphillus with the spread of the English empire. Sheep on ships got much love.

    Of note, a sheep in heat when addressed by a human male will form a fetus. It's usually aborted about 6-8 weeks later if I'm remembering mammology class correctly.

    Where'd you get your biology degree, Wikipedia U?

    First place, it's spelled "Syphilis", and second place, the causative agent of syphilis, Treponema pallidum, is a pathogen with only one known host- humans.

    The organism has been unable to be cultivated in vitro, and the only successful growth of the pathogen outside human tissue is in rabbit testes. Analysis of the mechanisms used to avoid host responses also indicates a high level of specificity.

    WOW @ how ludicrous a statement this is!! Seriously dude, you need to stop relying on Seth Green movies for your understanding of how biology works.

    'cept that my source is a text book from college regarding the fetus, and the other source is Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary, Appended, 19th edition.

    Rabbits also can pass syphillis to human hosts as infected animals in a lab setting have been reported to have done so by accidental contact.

    EDIT: I should clarify my statements. First syphillis originated in sheep. Second, the mention I make of it is that the sheep are incubators of the disease for a limited time. They aren't carriers. Sailor #1 takes care of business with said ovine, and later sailor #2 finds love with the same ovine. The sheep is incubating the diseased semen which infects the second sailor.
