Male goat produces milk in Saudi

By Staff

A male goat in Saudi Arabia was found to be producing milk and its owner said it was the first time he saw such a case, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.

Sabq Arabic language daily quoted owner Zaid Al Shammari as saying he was checking the goat after it fell ill and found traces of milk under it.

“I checked its belly and found that it has a nipple like female goats. I saw that the nipple oozed milk. It’s the first time I see such a case,” he said.

Shammari from the northern Saudi town of Al Jouf said the goat is not suffering from any “virility problems”, adding that his father was offered SR14,000 (Dh13,600) for the goat but that he refused to sell it.
