It's not just human offenders who face a prison sentence for committing a crime in some parts of the world.
The ram, which ferociously attacked and killed 45-year-old Adhieu Chaping earlier this month, was taken into police custody in South Sudan on the basis that it had committed murder.
"The ram attacked by hitting her ribs and the woman died immediately," sad Major Elijah Mabor. "So this is what happened in Rumbek East in a place called Akuel Yol."
"Our role as police is to provide safety and separate fights. The ram was apprehended and currently under custody at a Police Station of Maleng Agok Payam."
"The owner is innocent and the ram is the one who perpetrated the crime so it deserves to be arrested then later on the case shall be forwarded to customary court where the case can be handed amicably."
Bizarrely, the animal now faces a three-year prison sentence at a military camp.
Once it gets out, it will be gifted to the family of the victim.
The ram's owner is also expected to offer them five cows as compensation.
