Five-legged lamb gets second chance after Mississippi woman opens home and  heart for rehabilitation

A Mississippi woman with numerous rescue animals welcomed an unusual new addition to her home: a five-legged lamb.

Natalie Renot, of Wiggins, said the lamb, which she named Spider-Lamb, was in rough shape and had maggots in his stomach when she rescued him from a farm and took him to the Fur Babies Veterinary Hospital.

Veterinarians said Spider-Lamb needs hernia surgery, but already is improving.

“He definitely has some abnormalities. He might not be normal compared to other lambs, but I think that he will live a normal-for-him life,” veterinarian Jason Gulas told WLOX-TV.

Gulas said Spider-Lamb is still working on building strength to stand and walk.

“Spider-Lamb is definitely one of a kind for sure,” Gulas said.

Renot said Spider-Lamb will have a permanent home with her, and she is raising funds to help pay for his veterinary bills.
