* On ''TheRickyGervaisShow'', resident {{Cloudcuckoolander}} Karl Pilkington tells a story, where a series of thefts from an office were supposedly solved by putting the suspects in the same room as a ''houseplant'' from the scene of the crime. The houseplant supposedly "reacted" to the thief's presence.

* During the ReignOfTerror in France, one parrot was put on the stand to testify regarding its owners' royalist sympathies. It kept repeating "[[NotInFrontOfTheParrot Long live the King! Long live the priests! Long live the nobles!]]" in open court, and they got the guillotine.

* In ''VideoGame/HitmanBloodMoney'' the target's dog will be listed as a "witness" if it sees you make the hit. This means it somehow gives police a better composite sketch...
* In a since-removed bug in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', the player could get arrested by the town guards if a horse or chicken saw the deed. Even if it is your own horse. Apparently, guards appreciate testimony [[{{Pun}} straight from the horse's mouth]]. [[http://awkwardzombie.com/index.php?page=0&comic=012312 This was used]] in ''Webcomic/AwkwardZombie''

* The bees from ''WesternAnimation//BeeMovie''. They can actually talk, but the court had apparently not stopped to confirm that beforehand. When Barry is called to make his opening statements he starts by just making buzzing sounds as a joke.

* Not a criminal trial, but similar: at the end of ''[[Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality On A Pale Horse]]'', we learn that Zane's performance as Death has been found to be excellent. The testimony of Mortis, his horse, is crucial to Zane's passing the evaluation.
