A lucky lamb in England was spared a trip to the butcher shop because it was born with five legs!

The remarkable creature, dubbed 'Forrest' after the Tom Hanks' film  Forrest Gump, was delivered last week on a family farm in the English  country of Derbyshire.

According to farm owner Mark Bayley, his children immediately took a liking to the unique little lamb, which likely saved its life.
