Owner Gladys Oveido who posted the photos on social media said that she was shocked and confused on seeing the kid for the first time given its 'strange face' with 'human-like' features. "The rest of the baby was normal, it only had deformations in the head. It is unusual what happened. When we brought her from the field, she was angry," she recalled. Oveido tried to feed the kid milk from a spoon, but her health deteriorated and she died soon after, Oveido told Mirror.

The shocking photos quickly went viral with some even alerting the local police who dispatched an officer to the farm to document the bizarre animal.
