[UNVERIFIED CONTENT] Long-horned cattle, at a temporary Dinka settlement near Rumbek, in South Sudan. Under customary law, cattle are used like currency to purchase wives or pay compensation and settle disputes. Elders and local officials said the standard fine for adultery is seven cows, to be paid by offending male. The herdsmen and their families burn piles of dried cow dung to ward off flies, and the cover themselves and their animals in ashes from the fires. They survive on a diet of milk mixed with cows' urine, which acts like a preservative.
