  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. 


  I love human beings.
