A new lamb was born in Wales last week with five legs: two in the rear and three up front. It might be tempting to relish an extra “leg of lamb” from this lamb, but that won’t be happening.
Bethan Davies, who runs Rhiwlas Farm, where Jake was born, at Llanwddyn, North Wales, said he will be spared a trip to the butcher and stay with her as a pet.
She said: “The plan would normally be that he would go into the food chain but we’ve decided we’re going to keep him as a bit of a farm mascot.
“We’ve named him Jake, like Jake the peg with his extra leg – we couldn’t call him anything else really.”
I looked that up, it’a reference to a 1965 comedy song by Australian comedian Rolf Harris. Jake the lamb is a week old and his leg appears to be complete and functioning. He should do well with it. See more pictures at Caters News.
