Images of a bizarre ‘goat-like creature’ with human features have left people baffled as to what it actually is.

Samiraa Aissa shared the images after the animal was discovered in India earlier this month.

“The animal, whose shape resembles that of a human, has frightened an entire village,” she wrote alongside the vision of the obscure creature.

The hairless animal, which also appears to have a very prominent jawline, has since been dubbed the “mutant goat” and “demon goat” by people viewing the footage.

The vision of the remarkable animal has been viewed more than 59 million times.

Earlier this year, shocked elders in a remote South African village said they were convinced a deformed, stillborn lamb, which resembled a human, had been “sent by the devil” and born as a result of bestiality and witchcraft.

Superstitious locals in the Eastern Province farming town of Lady Frere believed the creature was part human after photos of the creature began circulating widely on the internet.

Veterinary officials said they would perform an autopsy on the lamb and report the results to residents of the remote town.
