“The man undressed himself and then caught the goat, strangled it and started to have s*x with it. The goat started to scream and then a shepherd shouted for assistance.” Members of the community came to the shepherd’s aid and assaulted the man.
“He was rescued by police who took him to the hospital,” Mngomezulu said. The SPCA was also called to the scene.
The Vereeniging Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) said the goat was found alive but died later. Its carcass was being sent for a post mortem.
Mngomezulu said the man was still in hospital and would be arrested once he was released. The SPCA said it would make sure the “animal defiler” was not granted bail once he appeared in court. “Animals are not s*xual commodities and this is a sick and barbaric crime that took place,” it said
