A Turkish citizen faces a fine or possible three years' chokey under German animal protection laws after a farmer's CCTV system caught him indulging in a bit of homo-ovine sexual interaction, Reuters reports.

The sheeps' owner "became suspicious" last year and duly rigged the video surveillance set-up. It recorded the unnamed 44-year-old in the act, police in the western region of Suedhessen explained in a statement.

Spokeswoman Christine Klein said: "He admitted sodomising the animals and had no explanation for his actions." ®
