Magically Scientific?

In Kwara State, Nigeria, police are holding a goat on suspicion of attempted armed robbery.

‘Vigilantes’ brought it in, claiming that it’s “an armed robber who had used black magic to transform himself into a goat to escape arrest after trying to steal a Mazda 323.” Apparently, as the vigilantes were chasing the suspected robbers, one of the robbers escaped “while the other turned into a goat.”

A police spokesman says:

“We cannot confirm the story, but the goat is in our custody. We cannot base our information on something mystical. It is something that has to be proved scientifically, that a human being turned into a goat.”

The culprit?
The culprit?

At Hubdub, you can predict whether the goat will be released maintaining the form of a goat, released after returning to human form, tried as a goat, tried as a human, or other.

Before you predict, you might want to know that the Telegraph notes that some reports cite “a different police spokesman” who says that the animal will be held until its owner claims it.

The original story ran on the front page of the Vanguard, a major Lagos daily newspaper.
