    CAIRO, September 18 (RIA Novosti) - A donkey from the northeast Egyptian city of Tanta has been sentenced to 24 hours in jail for stealing corn from a field owned by a local agricultural research center, the Al-Ahram weekly said on Thursday.

    The head of the research center called police after corncobs began vanishing from a field. The police laid a trap for the corn thief and subsequently caught a local donkey red-handed.

    Local media reported that the donkey's owner, a local farmer, then admitted to training the animal to steal corncobs.

    A local judge sentenced the donkey to 24 hours in jail and fined the farmer 50 Egyptian pounds ($9.5).

    This May, a donkey from the southern Mexican state of Chiapas was found guilty of assault and battery and thrown behind bars after he attacked two men.
