An attempt by two sheep thieves to steal from a flock at the Kumasi Abattoir in the Ashanti region of Ghana went bad as the BMW vehicle they were escaping in caught fire.
The two men stole a sheep and some plantain but were given a hot chase by the owners of the Abattoir.
The panicky thieves applied intense pressure on the BMW vehicle and burst a tyre.
Faced with a possibility of being caught and beaten, the two men persisted in driving with the raw rim resulting in the BMW catching flames.
The two men bolted leaving the helpless sheep in the vehicle to be ravaged by the flames.
The men who mounted the chase settled for the burnt sheep and were seen taking the remains to prepare some food.
