A priest tried to swim across a lake after being caught having sex with a cow, according to police in South Africa.
Limpopo police said that they received calls about a priest being assaulted after being caught having sex with a cow in public.
The incident began when a man identified as Washington, caught the priest in the act of bestiality behind bushes.
Washington began yelling at the priest identified as Pastor Nkundlande.
The priest of the Zion Christian Church, also known as ZCC Church, allegedly dragged the cow that was grazing in a field and had sex with it.
Washington called other residents to join him with weapons and they began to pursue the priest. Nkundlande tried to swim across a river, but he was detained and assaulted.
Luckily, the police quickly arrived at the scene and escorted the priest to safety. Nkundlande has since been fired from the church.
