Man Marries Goat in Africa

This is an older story that ran in the BBC news, but one worth mentioning in light of my recent post about an man marrying a dog in India.  A Sudanese man was forced by town elders to marry a goat after he was caught having intimate relations with it:

“‘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,’ [the goat’s owner] told the newspaper.”

Read the entire article here.  (And for those of you wondering if my latest 2 animal marriage posts have the potential to devolve into a disturbing new obssession for me with stories featuring people marrying animals, the answer is decidedly yes.)
