I don’t know how I missed this one but Pravda-online reported last week that a 50 year old man in Zambia killed himself after his wife caught him having sex with a chicken.
Apparently, the man’s wife heard strange noises, went to investigate and found her husband shagging the chicken. He got annoyed about this because he hadn’t finished so he tried to kill her. She ran off to the neighbours to get help.
Once the deed was revealed the man hung himself and the neighbours killed the hen. Did they possibly think it had led him on?
All a bit tragic really. I have no idea whether it’s really true though I suppose it’s easier than shagging a sheep; at least you don’t need to find your wellies first.
