In the Kenyan village of Gathanguri, a naked 35-year-old man named Maina was attacked by a mob, for having sex with a billy goat he found tethered to a bush.
Before being rescued by area chief Mohamed Ali, motorcycle taxi drivers in the crowd had intended to burn the offender using five litres of petrol.
Speaking to Kenyan newspaper The Star, Mr Ali described his alarm upon hearing of the bestiality.
He said: “Such a shocking incident has not happened here before. We do not understand why the man decided to engage in such an act.”
Maina was taken to a police station, and is expected to be prosecuted shortly at Kigumo law courts.
