A jury broke out into laughter on Monday after prosecutors described how a cow rejected the advances of an alleged sheep fucker.

Last September, a couple having a picnic reportedly witnessed 61-year-old Paul Lovell attempting to have sex with a sheep just minutes after he tried—and failed—to have sex with a cow in a field near London. Lovell, who was 250 yards from the couple, was reportedly "laying on the floor, taking his shorts off" before the attempted animal sex acts.

When the cow rejected his advances, prosecutors told jurors the man decided "try his luck with some sheep," At that point, understandably, the jury burst into laughter. The judge, however, was less amused and chided the jurors for laughing, according to the International Business Times.

One charge of indecent exposure was dropped against Lovell due to lack of evidence, though a second charge of outraging public indecency was amended to make sure it stuck: The charge now reads outraging public indecency with "fellatio on a cow."
