A FARMER'S goat has given birth to a bizarre "half-pig half-human" creature, sparking fears it is cursed and will bring bad luck.

Josephine Repique, 40, said the pregnant goat went into labour earlier this month at her smallholding in Sultan Kudarat in the Philippines.

The two babies had to be removed by caesarian section - sparking shrieks of horror when one of the strange-looking animals emerged.

Josephine said the kid ''looked like a pig, with a mix of human''. The small furless animal even had what  looked like a naval.

She said: ''We were shocked. We can't explain how it looks like that. All our neighbours flocked into our house to get a good look.''

Sadly, the two infants and the mother goat all died, sparking fears among villagers that the creature was a cursed ''mutant devil'' that brought bad luck.

Josephine added: ''Nobody knows what it is, but it's not a goat. It's scary.

"We're all wondering why it happened and if it is bad luck.''

Dr Agapita Salces of the Institute of Animal Science of the University of the Philippines said the foetus appeared to have suffered a genetic mutation in the womb.

He added: "It is also possible that the mother contracted a disease called Rift Valley fever from mosquito bites and this caused the impaired development of the infant.''

Earlier this year, footage of a mutant pig with human-like hands floating in water surfaced on the internet - dividing viewers who were unable to work out what exactly it was.
