A goat has been born with one eye and one ear, but has been hailed as a "miracle".

The disabled animal was born with the single organ last week and has been hailed as a miracle among people living in a village in India.

It is believed the villagers have reportedly started to worship the four-legged creature because a vet predicted the goat would not survive for long after it was born because the kid suffered from the defect titled cyclopia, which is a congenital disorder that occurs when the embryonic forebrain does not divide the eye socket into two.

Despite the goat's disability it's owner Mukhuri Das has been treating him like a "normal goat".

Speaking to the Metro Online, Mukhuri said: "I was shocked. It's like a miracle and people have been coming to our place to see this baby goat.

"It's my responsibility to take care of the baby goat. I have been feeding him like a normal goat.

"It might be something from God that the baby goat was born in our house."
