Lamb Born With Seven Legs

 

A lamb with seven legs was born last Friday on a farm in New Zealand. Dave Callaghan, owner of the farm, said he was surprised when he saw the seven-legged animal walking around with its mother and twin sibling.

The lamb is able to walk using two forelegs and three hind legs, while two of the extra legs are useless.
"I have never seen anything like that," said Callaghan.

Veterinarian Steve Williams at the Canterbury Vets clinic said due to an error during embryo formation, the lamb is a hermaphrodite and missing some of its bowel so it will be destroyed.
"To keep it alive is probably inhumane, really," he said.

  Its not so worrying that it had 7 legs  
 
its more worrying, to me at least, it used 3 of the hind ones ... 5 functioning legs?

  ANIMAL LIBERATION FRONT UNITE!!!!!  
 
"bowel so it will be destroyed.
'To keep it alive is probably inhumane, really,' he said."

THE ONLY HUMANE THING TO DO IS LET THIS CREATURE GO LIVE FREE IN THE WILDERNESS. DESTROYING ANOTHER ANIMAL'S LIFE IS NOT THE ANSWER!

PROTEST WILL BE HELD AT THE FARM THIS ANIMAL WAS BORN AT FOR ITS RELEASE ALONG WITH THE LIBERATION OF THE REST OF THE ANIMALS ON THAT FARM!

  shoez...  
 
I'm going to assume you're kidding. they're putting it down not b/c it's got 7 legs but because it lacks the ability to poop, which will eventually kill it anyway. Putting it down is the humane thing to do.
