Just when you thought you've read everything, http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090123/ap_on_fe_st/odd_goat_thief" .

The paper quoted police spokesman Tunde Mohammed as saying that while one suspect escaped, the other transformed into a goat as he was about to be apprehended.

The newspaper reported that police paraded the goat before journalists, and published a picture of the animal.

If convicted, he should be transformed into a stew.

Ba-aa-ah!

At least he won't be (I hope) associated with Stevie Nicks to compound his punishment.

its sad to think that the police didn't even try to cover up for their incompetence or accepted bribe!
