Goat with 2 heads, 8-legged pigs and more: Bizarre deformities caused by GM pesticides

They look like something from a horror movie  -- goat with two heads, puppy with trunk, baby yellow chick with four feet and more.

According to AsianTown, these are just of a few of the mutant animals found living in Argentina and exactly why is something of a mystery.

Pig farmer Ademaro Valadez Vasquez describes the birth of a piglet with paper-thin skin:

"When it was alive you could see the blood flowing around its body, and things moving inside its body."

The piglet with the see through skin was born just a few miles away from the black dog nicknamed "Dobby" after the house elf from the Harry Potter films.

Pictures of the black freak puppy that has a trunk for a nose went viral in the days after he was born in 2014.

Owner Eduardo Landin said he was shocked when he noticed that one of his new puppies appeared to have a trunk instead of a nose.

Eduardo, 35, said: "It was kind of similar but also shockingly different to the other puppies, so I realised it was in some way deformed and at first I thought it was dead. 

"But then I saw it moving and trying to feed, so I helped it over to the mother and it managed to drink something but it"s nose kept getting in the way."

He said that the deformed puppy was one of a litter of 11 and was the only one that was not normal.

While at first locals blamed superstitious spirits for the mutations, blame has shifted to the widespread use of the harsh chemical glyphosate which is used as a pesticide.

Mr Vasquez, a farmer with the skinless piglet, said: "Some superstitious people around here say it was down to the legend of Almamula.

"Local legend says that Almamula was a woman with no morals who committed incest with her brother and father. She was turned into a donkey and now walks around at night making a strange noise, with an iron chain attached to her leg.

"But I think its probably chemicals. I want tests done, the local government should investigate."

Argentina is the world"s biggest user of the controversial product, which kills all non-genetically modified (GM) crops.
