No, the human egg cell has certain proteins on the outside that protect it from being permeated by anything but the human sperm cell (which has special proteins to break through). Also, if the human egg cell/animal egg cell were to combine with the other type of sperm, the number of chromosomes would be mismatched, causing the death of the potential embryo.
