Five legged lamb born in Zeeland

It’s that time of year again when cute baby animals are born with newsworthy physical defects.

Here’s a five legged lamb, born in Sint-Jansteen, Zeeland to farmer Bertus. Bertus is not going to have the leg removed because he says the smell of humans and product could cause the mother to reject her lamb. As you can see in the video below, the lamb is able to function on four legs while dragging the fifth one.

The lamb was born on 21 January 2017, the same day Dutch actor Adèle Bloemendaal died, who also starred in a 1960 Dutch television show called ‘The sheep with five legs’ (‘t Schaep met de 5 pooten).

Back in 2014 the cops actually ‘arrested’ a sheep on the run‘, which made for a very funny tweet.
