On a farm in northeastern Croatia, an eight-legged goat was born.
Local vets told Mr. Paparic that the young goat’s extra legs were caused by an underdeveloped twin brother.

Mr. Paparic claims that he thought he was seeing things when he realized that Sarka had given birth to the disfigured child between two healthy newborn goats.
‘I counted his legs and thought he was seeing things. So I called my neighbor to make sure I’m not crazy.’
Mr Paparic describes the as-yet-unnamed ‘octocabrio’ as a ‘miracle of nature’ and says he would like to keep the child if it survives.

Veterinarians say the goat is unlikely to survive, but if it survives the first week, it could live for two to three years, Paparic told InSerbia.
Everything is double with him. Sarka, who I have for three years, gave birth to a miracle of nature. This is his fourth time and he always has triplets.’
‘He is trying to stand up, but he lacks strength.’
