Goat with horn on back spotted in Saudi Arabia

ENI Bureau

A goat has became a star attraction in Saudi Arabia. Reason: the animal has a horn protruding on its back.

The video uploaded  on Youtube shows the horn protruding just to the right of its spine.

While polycerate goats – goats with more than two horns – do exist, horn on goats back is quite rare.

The video which was uploaded on April 13 has been viewed by over 7,300 people.

Goat expert Mary C. Smith wrote in Goat Medicine that horns are used for defence, dominance and territoriality.

But if this clip is anything to go by, it’s possible they’re also used as a hanger for shopping bags or coats.
