Nigerian Goat Detained On Suspicion of Armed Robbery

A group of Nigerian vigilantes recently pursued two armed car thieves until "One of them escaped while the other turned into a goat." The goat is being held in Nigerian prison.

Two armed men attempted to steal a Mazda 323 when they were interrupted by a larger group of do-gooders, who were only able to nab one of the thieves and only after he had "turned into a goat." Belief in witchcraft is apparently widespread in parts of Nigeria, and the police chief offered up this stellar quote:

We cannot confirm the story, but the goat is in our custody. We cannot base our information on something mystical. It is something that has to be proved scientifically, that a human being turned into a goat.

There has been as yet no word on exactly what kind of scientific tests the police intend to use on the goat. [Reuters]
