Nigerian Goat Held Over Robbery.


Nigerian police are holding a goat on suspicion of attempted armed robbery - amid claims it used black magic to morf from a human to escape justice.

Vigilantes took the animal to police, claiming it had been a person trying to steal a Mazda 323.

"The group of vigilante men came to report that while they were on patrol they saw some hoodlums attempting to rob a car," Kwara state police spokesman Tunde Mohammed said.

"They pursued them. However one of them escaped while the other turned into a goat.

"We cannot confirm the story, but the goat is in our custody."

He went on: "We cannot base our information on something mystical. It is something that has to be proved scientifically, that a human being turned into a goat."

I think I may have gotten an email from this goat...........

My solution: eat the goat, and save a whole lot of time and money.

Been reading up on medieval culture and it says in the book that in those days, animals and even inanimate objects could be charged and prosecuted for things like this. :-)
