The community of Bibiani Anhwiaso Bekwai in the Western North region finds itself in a state of unease after a sheep delivered a two-headed lamb.
The lamb, which was born on Wednesday, December 3, had two heads including two mouths, four eyes, and two ears.
Adwoa Abrafi, the owner of the sheep, who has been rearing sheep for over a decade, expressed her shock, noting that such a mysterious occurrence had never happened before in her time of rearing animals.
Troubled by the situation, she sought the advice of a local spiritualist to discern whether it might be a bad sign.
The municipal veterinary officer, Dr. Emmanuel Kingsley Bassaw, in an interview with Joy News shed light on possible factors contributing to the abnormality.
He explained that the conjoined lamb might be as a result of the sheep’s exposure to heavy metals such as mercury and cyanide, inbreeding, or inadequate medical care.
