JOHOR BARU: It will take around two weeks to a month to finalise the investigations on the carcass of a kid in Kota Tinggi that was said to resemble a human infant (pic).

Johor state Agriculture and Agro-based Industry committee chairman Ismail Moha­med said then they would be able to find out the possibility of an offspring produced by a human and an animal.

“For now we cannot confirm or deny anything as we have never received such a case before.

“We will have to wait for the results and findings to be finalised and that takes somewhere between two weeks and a month,” he told The Star yesterday.

He said instructions had been given out to the Kota Tinggi district veterinary services office to hand over the carcass of the kid to the state Veterinary Services Department la­­boratory for tests to be conducted.

He said research would be conducted on the kid’s carcass to find out the reasons behind its human-looking features.

This included investigating the possibility that the mother goat was violated by a human, he said.

It was reported that Ibrahim Basir of Felda Sungai Mas was shocked to find that one of the goats had given birth to a baby goat with a face, nose, short legs and soft body that resembled that of a human infant but was dead upon discovery.

Despite the humanly features, the kid reportedly did not have any umbilical cord and Ibrahim even turned down offers to buy the carcass and instead reported the case to the veterinary authorities.

Ismail advised the public not to speculate on the reasons behind the strange-looking kid’s appearance and wait for the matter to be concluded.
