A man has been arrested for having sex with a female goat before strangling it because he “was attracted to her” and “she drew him in”.
The bizarre incident took place in Radunjaca, a small town near Bosnia-Herzegovina’s second largest city Banja Luka.
The owner of the goat has suggested that this may not be the first time this has happened.
Local media report the goat’s owner found a wallet with documentation containing the suspect’s name near the dead animal.
The owners of the goat say that they found it dead and then noticed the animal had unusual injuries near its tail.
They reported the case to the police and an investigation was launched.
A post mortem was conducted on the animal’s body which determined that the unfortunate goat had been the victim of bestiality and then strangled.
The prime suspect is a 32 year-old local resident who has been named in local police reports as as “V.V.”
The owner of the goat, a Ms Vuckovic, told reporters: “The young man was questioned by the police and was detained for 24 hours, after which they released him.
“He did not deny it at all, and when he met my son, he told him ‘you know when I went and saw the goat, I was attractive to her, she drew me in’.”
She added: “The young man is not otherwise problematic and all of the neighbours are shocked now… I’m scared.
“I don’t know what to think when someone can do this to an animal. And it was done because to me it’s all official and confirmed, that’s why I’m talking about it.”
Suggesting that this may not be the first time this has happened, she continued: “And those goats I found dead before, now – believe me – I don’t know what to think.
“I never questioned if they died naturally.
“All this [has] really scared me.”
It is unclear if the suspect has yet been charged.
