A mutant lamb born with two penises and seven legs has been trampled to death.

The one-of-a-kind animal was killed by its own flock after other animals refused to accept it.

Farmer Batyrbek Sulaymanov told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I was shocked to find that the other animals had killed it.

"They simply didn't accept it because it was so unusual and therefore trampled it to death."

Despite being born with seven legs, the lamb was able to walk around without experiencing any discomfort and appeared to enjoy a good standard of living, even though it had non-functioning legs.
