Mozambican goat rapists face shotgun wedding

Owner demands dowry in caprine polyandry shocker

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Two Mozambican men may have to cough a dowry after they were caught raping a goat, local media report.

The owner of the unfortunate animal is none too impressed with the two lads from Mbucuta in central Mozambique, who were caught in flagrante delicto by police. Witness Mario Creva confirmed: "One of the young men was naked and holding the goat's head, and the other was having sex with the animal."

The official line is that the unnamed pair are guilty of "simple larceny", and will appear before the beak in due course, district prosecutor Leonides Mapasse confirmed.

Mapasse did, though, suggest the owner may file civil suit to back his claim for damages and a lobolo (dowry) as part of traditional wedding arrangements. Press reports do not clarify the Mozambican legal position on caprine polyandry. ®
