This goat born with the face of a human baby has provoked a bidding war as people desperately tried to buy it from the farmer it belonged to. The newborn sadly did not live for long after its birth but it didn’t stop some from wanting to buy the carcass of the so-called fawn - the mythical fusion of goat and animal. Farmer Ibrahim Basir refused all cash offers after the goat was born on his property in Felda, Malaysia, instead choosing to hand it over to the Veterinary Services Department so it could be studied.
Ibrahim told local media he was shocked when he found out that one of his goats had given birth to a kid that had the features of a human baby. He said: “When I went to check, I was quite shocked but fascinated too as its face, nose, short legs and even the condition of its soft body seemed like that of a human baby, whereas the light brown fur covering its whole body resembles that of a goat.” He added: "We kept the carcass in a polystyrene box filled with ice cubes before taking it to the district veterinary office at around noon yesterday.” Ibrahim thinks the animals looks were a result of being trampled by its mother.

There is some speculation that someone in the village committed bestiality, an abomination in the predominantly Muslim community. So far there has been news from the lab that supposed to do the analysis, etc. What do you think?

Looks more like a dog if anything.
Probably genetic failure from inbreeding.
I've just came across this tidbit:
"However, there are some cases where interspecies breeding is possible! For example, you may have heard of hybrids between a tiger and a lion, or a donkey and a horse and a zebra, BUT these are possible because they sorta in the same family, something known as a genus."

Pretty ugly human face, never seen one like that not even in some of the interbred villages round here.
