“I well understand that there are aspects of it that are unusual and amusing,” said Judge James Patrick. “If you do find the case particularly funny, if you can try to get over your laughter over lunch that would be great.”

Paul Lovell, 61, was allegedly seen attempting to have intercourse with a sheep after he was unable to seduce a cow near in Enfield, North London, back in September.

Lovell has been charged with outraging public decency.
“In this case the defendant with his penis tried to put it into or up next to, as if to put it into, the mouth of a cow. And he repeated this more than once with different cows,” said prosecutor Robert Hutchinson.
“He did not successfully penetrate the mouth of a cow with his penis and he then moved to another part of the field and tried his luck with some sheep. The witnesses saw him trying to encourage -- using gestures -- the sheep towards his groin area and say that he was basically trying to entice them to lick or suck on his genitals.”
Lovell has denied the charges.
