According to WLBT, the Jones County Sheriff’s Department (JCSD) arrested a woman for having sexual intercourse with a dog. It is reported that the dog was her own “service dog”. The action was videoed and posted to social media to which a concerned citizen reported it. The woman claims that although she is paid to video her sexual intercourse, she was coerced into making the video with her dog, against her will. She was charged with unnatural intercourse and aggravated cruelty to an animal, with a $25,000 bond and ordered to stay away from animals. JCSD states they have several videos that are too graphic to share or discuss, and some were made in other counties with separate charges to follow. The dogs have been seized and under medical treatment.
What is unnatural intercourse and aggravated cruelty?
Unnatural intercourse can be defined as any sexual intercourse that is not penile-vaginal. Aggravated cruelty to animals occurs when a person with malice, intentionally tortures, mutilates, maims, burns, starves or disfigures any domesticated dog or cat.
