“An Abomination on the Land”: Human-Like Creature Discovered in Bowels of Slaughtered Sheep – Week In Weird

“An Abomination on the Land”: Human-Like Creature Discovered in Bowels of Slaughtered Sheep

Somebody has a lot of explaining to do.

Earlier this week a Texas man dorked a horse in the hope of creating a centaur-horse-man-baby, and now “pandemonium” has erupted in the Niger state capital as a butcher discovered a “human-like creature” in the stomach of a slaughtered sheep.

The discovery happened in the early hours of Tuesday morning, and turned the local market into somewhat of a circus.


“It was around 10:30 in the morning that I discovered the monstrous creature after slaughtering an ewe I bought on Monday from Kuta,” Alidu Maiyank told reporters. He went on to claim that the find was attributed to “God’s absolute power over everything” and refused to speak on the matter any further.

The creature, which sported human-like eyes, ears, a mouth, and two limbs, was found alive, and lived for roughly two hours before finally kicking the bucket.

Last year, outrage was sparked in Nigeria when a sheep gave birth to a similar “human-sheep hybrid, leading the locals to believe that someone was running around impregnating sheep.

“This is an abomination in our land. To see a sheep give birth to a half human being is a mystery and that shows how terrible some people are. It is unimaginable that some people will be having intercourse with animals,” one man said.

In the case of the human-ish head beast found on Tuesday, exasperated scientists are doing their best to assure locals that the creature is more than likely due to a birth defect. Dr. Samuel Joseph, Veterinary Surgeon for the Niger state Ministry said that, “such defect could occur as a result of injection of Agro chemicals and other factors which adversely affect growth of livestocks in such circumstances.”

Still, he has a hard time persuading others that the abomination is not a sign of the End Times.

The creature was reportedly whisked off to be studied by local veterinary specialists. Or possibly to be resurrected to rule over the coming apocalypse. Take your pick.

    Reminds me of the “Mel’s Holes” article, where they lowered a sheep down and inside its stomach upon autopsy was a “seal/humanoid looking being”…..odd stuff.

      I can barely express how happy I am anytime someone ever mentions Mel’s Hole. One of the all time best C2C calls ever.

    The things that happen to poor Nigerians. Well, their prince is a good friend of mine (we’ve corresponded through e-mail and I’m even holding some money for him in my checking account), so I know he and his people are very reliable on these matters and not at all superstitious, ignorant, or shady.
