A farmer in Timua, Meru County has been sentenced to six months in jail or pay fine of Sh4000 for leaving his bull to mate with neighbour’s heifer.

The accused Zachary Muriungi confessed before a magistrate court in Meru that his bull broke a rope it had been tethered on and strayed into neighbour’s farm in Ngushishi, Timau to pursue a heifer that was grazing there.

He told the court that he was unable to control his bull thus asking not to be jailed as this was natural act between the animals.

He said, “My bull had been tethered firmly and could not have broken the rope had it not been for the heifer. It broke the rope to pursue it and thus entered the farm,”
