Sudan man forced to 'marry' goat

A Sudanese man has been forced to take a goat as his "wife",
after he was caught having sex with the animal.
The goat's owner, Mr Alifi, said he surprised the man with his
goat and took him to a council of elders.

They ordered the man, Mr Tombe, to pay a dowry of 15,000
Sudanese dinars ($50) to Mr Alifi.

"We have given him the goat, and as far as we know they are
still together," Mr Alifi said.

Mr Alifi, of Hai Malakal in Upper Nile State, told the Juba Post
newspaper that he heard a loud noise around midnight on 13
February and immediately rushed outside to find Mr Tombe with his goat.
"When I asked him: 'What are you doing there?', he fell off the
back of the goat, so I captured and tied him up."

Mr Alifi then called elders to decide how to deal with the case.

"They said I should not take him to the police, but rather let
him pay a dowry for my goat because he used it as his wife," Mr Alifi
told the newspaper.

Punishment?

I've had the distinct misfortune of having been involved in several cases where gentlemen have engaged in similar courtship of livestock. One is typically pretty far gone by the time they degenerate to this level of behavior. I really doubt any would have objected too vigorously to making honest women of their mates.

"Do you?"

"I moo"
