Sudanese Man Marries His Goat

A truly heart-warming tale:

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.

  1. Don’t want to put a downer on this tale of true-love, but I read a similar tale a good 3 or 4 years ago. Is this an urban legend that keeps coming round every so often? Yes, I know its on the beeb site, but it was on the beeb site when I read it as well.

  2. See up there at the top, by the date, where it says something along the lines of “Friday, 24 February 2006”? That might shed some light.
