In an article posted at Answers in Genesis – a creationist apologetics website dedicated to substantiating the infallible truths found in the Bible — an author cautions that dismissing the one-horned horse known as the unicorn as a mythical beast “is to demean God’s Word.”

Dr. Elizabeth Mitchell, citing several references in the Bible to the fantastical animal that is a favorite of children and fantasy fans, warns that the unicorn did indeed exist writing, “The Bible is clearly describing a real animal.”
According to Mitchell, there are multiple references to the unicorn in the Bible, including Job 39:9 (“Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?”) and Isaiah 34:7 (“And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness“).
Mitchell notes that “modern readers” have difficulties believing the Bible’s unicorns because they “forget that a single-horned feature is not uncommon on God’s menu for animal design. (Consider the rhinoceros and narwhal)”.
