A sheep has been sentenced to three years in prison in South Sudan after being found guilty of killing 45-year-old woman, Adhieu Chaping.
Police Chief Major Elijah Mabor told newsmen that ‘The ram attacked the victim by hitting her ribs, and the old woman died immediately’.
The Police explained that they arrested the sheep instead of the owner because the owner is innocent.
‘The owner is innocent and the ram is the one who perpetrated the crime so it deserves to be arrested’, he said.
Mabor further noted that the animal was found guilty of murder and will be sentenced to a military camp for three years.
The victim’s family will own the ram after it finishes serving the jail term.
