On Thursday, July 7th, a Junior High School student at Huniso in the Prestea-Huni District was caught having sex with sheep.
The 15-year old boy according to a report by Accra -based radio station, Class FM, was caught by two young men in the act.
Relating the incident, one Joseph Nfum with whom the culprit resides said, "One of the men indicated that he was home when he heard a sheep bleating in an unusual way endlessly. He rushed out and saw the boy having sexual intercourse with the sheep".

Mr Nfum who also doubles as the Unit Committee Chairman of Huniso said that resident in the area were left in a state of shock and the matter was refered to the youth leader of the area as the chief was not around.
"As it stands now, we have to wait for the Chief and report to him for the next line of action," he stated.
The culprit has however expressed his bewilderment at the issue saying that he did not "know what pushed" him to engage in sexual intercourse with the sheep. “I was in the room some few hours earlier and honestly, I do not know what pushed me to that. Something pressed me to go and have sex with the sheep,” he said.
