London, Nov 4 : A sheep has given birth to twin lambs at a refugee camp in the Middle East - one of which is born with two heads.
Although one of the twins is normal, the two-headed sheep has been branded a 'holy lamb' by its owner, who said the lamb's birth is 'God's Will'.
"This year the sheep gave birth to twins. The first one was a normal lamb and with the second lamb the legs came out first. Then suddenly we saw two heads. That is God's will," The Telegraph quoted the owner Mohammed Moussab, as saying.
The two-headed lamb is unable to stand on its own two feet and has trouble feeding in a natural way.
Because of this, it is being rejected by its mother who is finding it difficult to bond with the lamb.
"She's treating the twins differently. The mother takes care of the first normal one more than it does for the other because it has two heads. The mother doesn't come towards the two-headed sheep but sometimes it will get closer to it," the owner said.
Veterinarians have revealed that the animal will survive if proper care is taken by the owner, who said he will not butcher the lamb, as its God's own creature.
