AMalaysian court has fined a man and a woman four buffaloes and a pig after they were found guilty of an extramarital affair, according to a report in the Star newspaper in Borneo.

The report said the pair was convicted after the man’s wife lodged a complaint after she found her husband wearing shorts at his second home with her colleague, who was wearing a sarong. The judge ruled there was strong evidence the pair had had an affair, and under customary local laws were ordered to compensate their communities with the livestock, valued at about 6,500 ringgit ($2,000) for their tryst.

They were also reportedly each fined 1,000 ringgit.
