A man in South Africa has been arrested for allegedly raping and injuring a dog belonging to his friend.
A 32-year-old man from the Clinton section in Motla Village near Hammanskraal, Tshwane, South Africa, is currently behind bars for allegedly raping a dog belonging to his friend, Shela Molema, reports Daily Sun.
According to the report, Molema had caught the man red handed with her dog in his bedroom but he tried to hide the animal which jumped into its owners arms.
Though the man told the police that Shela’s accusation was false, investigations revealed the dog’s hair were found on his bed.
He was promptly arrested by the Temba Police and thrown behind bars, facing a bestiality charge. The devastated owner of the dog said she paid the man R250 to fix her leaking roof and when he left her place, she noticed that her nine-year-old female dog, Stompie, was missing.
In the morning, she went to the man's house to bring him over to carry out the repair job and that was when she saw him raping the dog.
“I knocked several times, and he kept saying, ‘I’m coming to open’.
When I opened the door, I couldn’t believe what I saw - the man with Stompie in bed! He tried to hide Stompie, but she jumped on me.
Stompie’s genitals were swollen and injured. I took my dog home and told Tshwane SPCA’s inspector Mishack Matlou and the police. I am disappointed that the man I trusted abused my dog!”
Veterinary doctors at the Onderstepoort Veterinary Clinic who tested the canine found that she had semen in her genitals and was badly injured.
