This butcher's tribute to Andy Murray's baby is terrifying

Fact: Nothing looks good when recreated in red meat.

A Scottish butcher has attracted ire online after creating a "tribute" (read: monstrosity) to tennis star Andy Murray's second child, made entirely of sausage.

John Hill, who clearly had the best intentions, posed for a picture with the creepy meat baby for Glasgow's Sun newspaper on Thursday, a day after it was announced Murray and his wife Kim had welcomed a baby girl.

The couple already have one daughter,19-month-old Sophia.

Hill, who owns a shop in Dunblane, Scotland, is described by the Sun as Murray's "old local butcher".

He told the Sun he thought the meat baby would be "a funny way to let people know" about their local hero's new arrival.

The creation, which is made of Scottish Lorne sausage, certainly attracted attention on social media.
