A man was found raping a neighbour’s female goat on Friday night, Kenyan media reports.
Gabrielle Simiyu, 26, was nabbed in action by the goat’s owner Richard Wanyonyi while checking the animal shed after hearing noises.
”I thought my animals were strangling each other so I tiptoed to the cow shed and flashed my torch. I was shocked when I found the man but he ran away very fast,” said Wanyonyi.
”Since it was at night I did not see him very well so I took the shoes he left behind and began a search in the morning.”
Outraged residents claimed it wasn’t the first time Simiyu had violated farm animals in their village.
They claimed the motorcycle operator had previously engaged in sex acts with a cow and chicken.
Wanyonyi said his randy neighbour admitted to having sex with the animal and pleaded for forgiveness.
The goat owner said Simiyu told him he committed bestiality after returning from a funeral dance as women there turned down his advances.
Simiyu denied claims by some residents that he had done so before with a cow and a chicken.
“I have a serious problem and need help. Every time I approach a girl she refuses and it really pains me,” he said.
”I am appealing to well-wishers to take me to a doctor or a specialist so the problem I have can be identified.”
Christopher Kundu, a resident of the Nangwe village, in Bungoma, said they were shocked by the incident and that they suspected the man was under the influence of drugs.
He said Simiyu could have left the funeral with any woman instead of embarrassing the community.
The offender was taken to a police station where officers said he will be charged for bestiality.
