2 cases of bestiality reported
Johannesburg - Two cases of bestiality involving dogs were reported by police in two provinces on Tuesday.
In the North West, a man apparently had sex with a dog in a toilet in Mabopane, north-west of Pretoria, on Sunday.
Lieutenant Colonel Dikatso Thebe said the owner of a house in Mabopane caught the 21-year-old with the dog and called nearby residents, who beat up the man.
He handed himself to the police the next day out of fear of the residents, Thebe said.
The man was expected to face a charge of bestiality in the Ga-Rankuwa Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
In Sun City village, near KwaMhlanga in Mpumalanga, a man was arrested for allegedly having sex with a friend's dog.
The 48-year-old arrived at his friend's house at 20:00 on Monday and asked for him, Sergeant Nonhlanhla Kgosana said.
His wife told him her husband was not home and the man walked back to the gate.
Once the woman was back in the house, the man grabbed the couple's dog and ran into the toilet with the animal, Kgosana said.
She heard the animal howling and ran out to call the neighbours.
They came across the man leaving the yard and found blood on the dog.
Kgosana said the man was linked to the crime when the police found dog fur and bloodstains in his pants.
He was expected to face a charge of bestiality in the KwaMhlanga Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
