Migrant raped a goat in Bulgaria


No evidence given.

The story about a migrant having raped a goat cannot be found in any reliable source. Geworld refers to Russian news agency RIA FAN as its original source. A journalistic research project undertaken last year by the independent Russian news outlet RBC showed that RIA FAN is in fact itself an offspring project of the famous St. Petersburg “troll factory”.
