A Balinese teenager caught in flagrante delicto having sex with a cow claimed he was the victim of a bovine temptress who'd wooed him with sweet words, the Jakarta Globe reports.
Unemployed youth Ngurah Alit, 18, was nailed "stark naked positioned behind the cow in a rice paddy field" in the coastal village of Yeh Embang in Jembrana.
The lad coughed to bestiality but claimed the beast had appeared to him as a beautiful young woman. He summarised: "She called my name and seduced me, so I had sex with her."
Locals moved quickly to "cleanse the village of the unholy act of a man mating with a cow", arranging a quick and evidently entertaining seafont wedding during which the groom passed out while his mother began "screaming hysterically", and "other family members shouted at photographers not to take pictures".
As part of the ritual cleansing, Alit was "symbolically drowned and bathed on the beach". One villager explained: “Only his clothes were thrown into the sea."
The shameless hooved hussy responsible for the outrage didn't fare so well; her wedding day ended abruptly when she was literally drowned.
The cow's owner received five million rupiah (£370) as compensation for his loss, the Jakarta Globe notes. ®
