Husband to carry on after goat wife dies

‘Rose, the goat that found international celebrity last year after being forced into marriage with a Sudanese man, has died after accidentally swallowing a plastic bag.

The town of Juba in southern Sudan, if not in mourning, at least has the satisfaction of having had the world in stitches as the source of one of the internet’s best-read news items. [..]

Tragedy struck last month when Rose swallowed a plastic bag as she scavenged for food scraps on the streets of Juba.

She left a male kid – goat, not human – and a grieving widower. It is not known whether she was cremated or turned into curry.’
