South Sudanese authorities have confirmed they have arrested a cow for the murder of a 12-year-old boy.
Police said they detained the cow along with its owner after the animal allegedly attacked the child near a farm in the Lakes State.
It’s been reported that the child was killed instantly due to the ferocity of the attack.
Major Elijah Mabor, a South Sudanese police spokesman, has confirmed that the animal is “under arrest”.
He 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.”
Just a month ago, a ram was arrested and charged with the murder of a 45-year-old woman in South Sudan. The cow was then sentenced to three years in jail.
