“It was extraordinary, this goat was born deformed but we don’t know why,” Gladys Oviedo told journalist Jorge Castro in an interview, as cited by El Chorrillero
The so-called ‘demon goat’ was one of three kids born to Oviedo’s goat in the village of Los Quemados at approximately 8:30pm local on Tuesday, roughly 210km from the city of San Luis in La Rioja province.
“I noticed the deformity straight away. It had bulges over its eyes and a raised chin, but apart from that it was normal,”Oviedo said.

The goat only survived for roughly three hours, however.
“When we took it back from the field, it began bleating. I said that once we arrived home I would give it milk with a spoon but I noticed it was having difficulty breathing and soon after it died,” Oviedo explained.
“I have no idea how it was born this way, but it certainly drew a lot of attention,” she concluded.
