A sheep has been sent to prison for three years for mauling a woman to death in a field and will be forced to live with the bereaved family once released.

 It headbutted the woman repeatedly, breaking her ribs.


The sheep was taken into police custody after she was discovered dead, the force announced. 


The town's Major Elijah Mabor explained: “The owner is innocent and the ram is the one who perpetrated the crime so it deserves to be arrested then later on the case shall be forwarded to customary court where the case can be handed amicably."
