A teenage boy who was caught making love to a Camel has been ordered to marry the animal to ward off evil spirit.
The order was handed down on the boy by Yemen Elderly court, mandating the teenager to marry the camel since he had been having sexual intercourse with it.
When he was arraigned in the court, the young boy admitted to having repeatedly had sex with the animal during the course of the last year when he developed an uncontrollable urge to do so and felt obliged to come out publicly and admit to his crime after the camel gave birth and the young boy believed he was the father.
The village spokesman said:
“Although we do not believe he is the father of the young calf, to punish him of his evil ways and purge him of his demons, we the council of elders ask that the young boy be married to the camel.”
Although the young man has received a punishment that has shamed him and his family, friends and family members report that the young man is satisfied with the verdict.
“He is very ashamed of his wrong doings but is very relieved to have learned that he is not the father of the calf.
He says he felt he was not ready for such responsibilities and is very glad to put this behind him,” the boy's aunt said.
The local Imam claims the young boy has been possessed by evil spirits and the marriage with the animal should ward off the bad omen brought by the insidious act.
“It is necessary to cleanse this young boy of his evil actions and the marriage should protect him from evil Jinns (spirits) and bring forth Allah’s protection within this weak boy’s soul. May Allah protect him and his family.”
