Begoro, Oct. 29, GNA - A 45-year-old farmer at Begoro, Kwaku Whio, has been ostracized from his family after he was caught in the act of having sex with a female sheep - an ewe.
The Owner of the animal, Okomfo Kofi Noamegbor, told the Ghana News Agency that Whio had served him from infancy and when he realized that he was of age, he planned to marry for him, but he declined the offer, saying he was ready to marry.
Noamegbor said about a month ago, he detected that the female organ of the biggest ewe got swollen and he planned soliciting the assistance of a veterinary Officer to examine it.
He said at mid-night of that day, he heard an extra ordinary bleating of a sheep in the pen.
He said when he woke up and flashed his torchlight through the pen, he found Whio having sex with the biggest ewe in the pen in the darkness.
He said he raised an alarm and neighbours woke up to see Whio in the pen naked with the ewe.
Normegbor said when Whio was confronted, he said people had been mocking at him that he was impotent because he did not marry at his present age and that he was "testing his potency" to disabuse people's notion.
He said Whio was detained until morning and was later flogged by an elder of his family who considered the act as an abomination. He said Whio was driven out and warned not to join the family again.
