An Argentinian sheep farmer was found dead on his farm when he was discovered alongside a scarecrow.

However, it appears Jose Alberto was having sex with the scarecrow as it was wearing a woman's wig and was adorned with lipstick. It also had a six-inch dildo attached to its frame.

Investigators initially thought there were two bodies in the field, however on closer inspection, the remains were identified as Alberto.

The 58-year old, who lived alone, was found by neighbours who complained about a rotten smell coming from his house.

"There were no signs of violence and we are working on the assumption that the man died during sex with the scarecrow," explained prosecutor Rodolfo Moure.

Neighbours said that Alberto was a quiet man who had few visitors.

Poor guy.
