A 60-year-old man, Shaari Hasan, is facing 20-year jail term after he allegedly raped a female goat to death.
The incident occurred in Malaysia.
A senior citizen was charged in the sessions court today with having carnal intercourse with a female goat that subsequently died.
Hasan has been charged before judge Nurul Mardhiah Mohammed Redza.
The widower is said to have committed the offence behind a house at Kampung Sungai Buaya in Rawang at about 1.30pm on July 27, according to Free Malaysia Today.
Those found guilty under section 377 of the Penal Code for voluntarily having carnal intercourse with an animal can be punished with a maximum jail term of 20 years and are also liable to a fine or whipping.
Deputy public prosecutor Siti Khadijah Amir Hamdzah opposed bail as the offence was serious.
However, lawyer Zolazrai Zolkapli, who represented Shaari, said his client should be freed pending the outcome of the trial since it was a bailable offence.
The judge refused bail and fixed the case for mention on Dec 24.
According to Hulu Selangor police chief, Arsad Kamaruddin the incident came to light on July 28 after the goat’s owner heard the animal making strange sounds.
Upon checking, she discovered a man, whom she knew, half-naked next to the goat. The suspect fled the scene.
Arsad said that when she checked on the goat, she found it had died. The owner then lodged a police report.
