A Limerick man has appeared before Limerick District Court charged with ordering his Alsatian dog to have sex with a 43-year-old mother of four, who died from an adverse allergic reaction to dog semen.
The Irish Sun reports that Sean McDonnell, 57, is charged with buggery contrary to Section 61 of the Offences against the Person Act of 1861 – and is believed to be the first person in Ireland to be charged under the legislation.
Should Mr. McDonnell be found guilty he could well face the maximum sentence of life imprisonment.
The Irish Daily Star adds that McDonnell and the deceased woman had discussed the arrangement at some length on a bestiality chat room, and that Gardaí are satisfied that the intercourse was consensual.
Well that is a relief what would the World be coming to if dogs ran around raping people willy nilly?
