A man has been jailed for five years for raping his pit bull puppy.
From Metro: James Guy Bull, 62, admitted the offence after being caught in the act by his neighbour at his home in Daytona Beach, Florida.
‘The facts of this case are incomprehensible and vile,’ said R.J. Larizza, who is the state attorney.
‘The defendant’s abuse of the helpless dog shocks the collective conscience of the citizens of the Seventh Circuit and beyond.’
A neighbour had spotted him having sex with the eight-month-old puppy, with Bull apparently pulling up his pants when he realised he was being watched.
He was sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to a number of offences, including misdemeanor sexual activities involving animals.
His dog has since been taken in by an animal welfare organisation and renamed Rose.
