Woman who claimed to be Pregnant by Goat, actually Gives Birth to Human/Goat Baby.
1. Alabama Woman claims she is the First Ever to be Impregnated by a Goat.
2. Woman Gives Birth to a Human-Goat Hybrid.
Hoax or Fact:
A bizarre story in circulation online states that an Alabama woman who claimed to be Impregnated by a Goat actually gave Birth to a Human-Goat Hybrid Baby shown in the Picture. No, as detailed below, the claim is not a fact.
Origin of Story
In mid March 2016 News 4 KTLA website News4KTLA.com published an article about a 22-year-old Alabama woman, Janice Gilbert who claimed she is the first ever to be Impregnated by a Goat. Janice Gilbert reportedly explains that she got impregnated by her father’s goat named ‘Nibbles’ after her husband was known to be infertile. In the following months, the story was reproduced in at least couple of other websites like now8news.com and taiviral.com, showing a picture and saying Janice Gilbert actually gave birth to a Human-Goat Hybrid Baby.
Like mentioned in News 4 KTLA article, there are no credible reports of any woman to have reported getting impregnated by a goat. News 4 KTLA website has been publishing many fake, crime stories as local and national news. For example, earlier they published a fake story saying a 9 year old boy murdered his parents after they turned off Wi-Fi for punishment. And the other websites Now8News and Taiviral have both been publishing many such crazy false stories that are far from facts.
About the Picture
The picture shown as a Human-Goat hybrid baby is in fact the carcass of a Baby Goat bearing similarities of a human baby. The baby goat belonged to a farmer Ibrahim Basir in village of Felda in southern Malaysia. The strange looking baby goat was unfortunately found dead and was handed over to district veterinary department to carry out investigation.
The stories saying an Alabama woman who claimed to be impregnated by a Goat actually gave Birth to a Human-Goat Hybrid Baby are simply hoaxes that originated from fake news articles. Animals belonging to different genus cannot mingle and reproduce naturally.
