Cow Arrested For Killing 12-Year-Old Boy In Sudan

In one of the strangest incidents, South Sudanese police said that they detained a cow and its owner after the animal killed a 12-year-old boy.

Citing police statement, the Independent reported that the cow was walking near a farm in the evening last week when it attacked the child, killing him instantly. The animal had been pulling a plough in Lakes State when the incident took place.

Police spokesman, Major Elijah Mabor, said, “The bull is now under arrest at a police station in Rumbek Central County. The boy was taken to hospital for post-mortem and he was taken home for burial.”Speaking at the time of the ram’s arrest, Mr Mabor had explained:

“The owner is innocent [but] the ram is the one who perpetrated the crime so it deserves to be arrested.”

The ram was sentenced to hard labour at a military camp where it will be imprisoned for three years. Once it is released, the ram is also expected to be given to the family of Ms Chaping – in line with the laws and traditions of the country.

The Independent reported that any domestic that kills a person is automatically given as compensation to the victim’s family once it has served its sentence.

A local court had also fined the ram’s owner, Duony Manyang Dhal, five cows, which must be surrendered to the victim’s family
