    It is out of the realms of possibility.

    We have 23 chromosome pairs and sheep have 27. During fertilisation that simply cannot work.

    It's just a mutant sheep.

    Very little is entirely out of the realms of possibility, there is so much we do not understand about development, cancer cells survive with uneven numbers of chromosomes, and some species such as fruit flies are able to breed with uneven pairs. Yes in most species there are checks in place to prevent this, but it can happen, there is precedence in nature, just very very unlikely

    A goat from Zimbabwe gave birth to a similar youngster in September 2009. The mutant baby born with a human-like head stayed alive for several hours until the frightened village residents killed him.
    Aww damn.

    Anyway I think it's interesting and they should breed more like him maybe they could talk to us or maybe they would just freak me out so much I would kill them. Who knows...

    Anyway. This kind of thing should be baa-red. HA!

    Its happened before. There is a well known case in America of a feral girl raised by wolves, who mated with them and produced surviving human-wolf hybrid children.

    http://www.mysteriouspeople.com/Wolf_Girl.htm

    .......Though there were a few unverified reports in the following years of a young hair-covered girl being seen with a wolf pack in the area, no one ever came in close contact with her. Meanwhile gold had been discovered in California and westward travel had increased significantly. In 1852 a surveying party of frontiersmen searching for a new route to El Paso were riding down to the Rio Grande at a bend far above the mouth of Devil's River. They were almost at the water's edge when they saw at close range, sitting on a sand bar, a young woman suckling two wolf cubs. Suddenly she saw them, quickly grabbed the pups and dashed into the breaks at such a rate that it was impossible for the horsemen to follow.

    The girl would have been seventeen years-old that year. After that she disappeared into the wilderness forever. It is impossible now to know what became of Mollie Dent's daughter, presuming that's who the wolf girl was. There were subsequent reports of 'human-faced' wolves in the area right up until the 1930s, and author L.D. Bertillion (see sources below), wrote in 1937, 'during the past forty years I have in the western country met more than one wolf face strongly marked with human characteristics'.

    ...You have to be joking, you don't actually believe that, do you?
