New Zealand farmer Dave Callaghan found a seven-legged lamb in the field of his farm - unfortunately, the newborn
calf sheep had to be put down because it was suffering:
Veterinarian Steve Williams said the lamb was also hermaphrodite, and was missing a part of its bowel so was unable to pass feces.
He said it was this latter problem, rather than the fact it had seven legs, that meant it would have to be destroyed.
