Cape Town - A 21-year-old man was arrested after neighbours caught him with his pants down.

Lindeka Thwala, 41, said she heard geese making a huge racket just before 7am last Wednesday in Masakhane, Gansbaai.

When her husband went to investigate, he caught the young man holding the goose over his crotch.

“He said, ‘hy n*** die gans (he’s having sex with the goose)’ and then he is going to kill it,” recalled Lindeka.

“That goose couldn’t even walk. It was lam (lame) and just lay there,” said Lindeka.

The shocked woman then ran to call the owner of the flock of geese.

The owner, who asked to remain anonymous, said when she arrived at the scene and asked the young man what he wanted to do with her goose, he told her he was going to “rape it, kill it and cook it”.

“He was drunk and onbeskof (rude). He said they must call the cops because he committed the sin. I don’t know if he was referring to the rape,” said the 52-year-old woman.

She was so angry that she didn’t even check the goose for injuries.

“But afterwards the bird just lay there and slept the whole day,” she said.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel André Traut has confirmed that asuspect was arrested for raping a goose in Gansbaai.

“This office can confirm that on 28 July a 21-year-old man made a court appearance in Hermanus on a charge of bestiality following an incident on 27 July in Masakhane, Gansbaai involving a goose.

“The matter is still under investigation,” said Traut.

Meanwhile, the goose couldn’t be found but the owner is adamant that she doesn’t want it.

“I just want him to give me the money to buy a new goose. I don’t want to eat a goose that might have been raped,” said the woman.
