In a strange incident, a baby goat was born with one enlarged eye in Assam on May 10. Soon after the birth, the vets predicted that the goat will die within a few days, but it has defied expectations.
The goat is suffering from a rare condition called cyclopia, which is developed in the womb when the left and right hemispheres of the brain do not separate during pregnancy.
This abnormality leads to the formation of a single central cavity with one eye, or sometimes partially fused or separate eyeballs.
Villagers believe that the goat is sacred, and the locals have started worshipping it. Since its birth, a large number of people have been visiting the village just to see it. The goat’s owner considers it a miracle,
I was shocked. It’s like a miracle and people have been coming to our place to see this baby goat. It’s my responsibility to take care of the baby goat. I have been feeding him like a normal goat. It might be something from God that the baby goat was born in our house.
