Motodop arrested for alleged bovine butchery

An injured leg led to a cow’s early demise on Sunday on the capital’s Chroy Changvar peninsula.

According to 20-year-old butcher Sovann Karim, he had left the cow overnight at the local pagoda when he was unable to walk it home.

Returning the next morning, the bovine was gone, causing him to immediately suspect a motodop who lived next door.

Sure enough, police responding to the complaint found the motodop’s home to contain a machete and a freezer’s worth of freshly sliced beef.
