A bizarre hybrid of goat and a human has been encountered in an Indian village - and video footage of the animal has perplexed internet users as to just what's gone wrong with it.

The goat clearly has some sort of defect that's given it a strange appearance. Its human facial features have earned it the pseudonym 'demon goat' and 'mutant goat' by various media outlets.

In footage posted to Facebook, the goat is seen flicking out its tongue at the camera, which makes it look even more like a person.

"A strange creature has been discovered in India," the video was captioned. "The animal, whose shape resembles that of a human being, terrified a whole village."

It's the second strange goat to have been spotted in India in a matter of months. In May, a kid was born with only one eye, right in the middle of its face - making it look like a Cyclops.

The owners had said they were happy the goat had been born on their property because people were coming to see them, earning them fame.
