R.I.P. Sudan’s Married Goat

BBC News:

The goat, known as Rose to close friends, became a web phenomenon when it was reported that she had been “married” to Sudanese man Charles Tombe. The wedding was enforced by elders after a drunken Tombe was found taking advantage of the poor animal. He was also made to pay a dowry to Rose’s original owner.
