Man Who Bonked 7 Sheep
A Kumasi Circuit Court has thrown behind bars a 36-year-old carpenter for 36 months for having sexual intercourse with a sheep.
Kwaku Amable, who is married with two children, was found guilty of bestiality, the act of having sex with an animal. He committed the act despite excessive bleating by the sheep at about 12 midnight on March 25, 2011.
The court, presided over by Emmanuel Amo-Yartey, convicted the carpenter of unnatural carnal knowledge, contrary to Section 104 (1) of Act 29/60, to which he pleaded guilty. Presenting the facts of the case, Chief Inspector Baffour Kyei said both the complainant, Adamu Issaka, a security man at Kent Security, and the convict reside at Buokrom Limex Quarry, a suburb of Kumasi.
The complainant, he said, reared sheep at his backyard and for some time now, some of his animals had been dying mysteriously. “Within a month, seven of the sheep died,” Chief Inspector Baffour Kyei told the court.
Last Friday, March 25, at about 12 midnight, Adamu heard one of the sheep bleating in the pen which compelled him out of the room to see what was wrong.
He said the complainant got closer to the pen and as he was approaching it, he saw a pair of bathroom sandals in front of the pen and a towel hanging on it. “When the complainant entered the pen, he found one of the sheep lying very weak. He lifted it up to ascertain what had happened to it only to see some whitish fluid emitting from the vulva,” he told the court.
The complainant was shocked after seeing the spectacle and decided to look round with a flash light to see who might have entered the pen.
The complainant surprisingly found Amable hiding in the backyard garden behind the pen, with his penis dangling. Realising that he had been caught, the convict knelt down and started to plead with the complainant to forgive him for abusing the animal.
He also pleaded with the complainant not to disclose the information to anybody. Chief Inspector Baffour Kyei said even though the complainant initially acceded to the convict’s request, he later changed his mind and reported the matter to the police.
Amable was eventually arrested and he admitted to having unnatural sex with four of the sheep on different occasions.
