Man charged with animal cruelty after raping dog

A Farmington, West Virginia man has been charged with burglary and animal cruelty after breaking into a house and having sex with the owner’s dog.

A friend of the homeowner stopped by to drop off some things at the house. She walked into the living room and caught a strange man with his pants around his ankles, having sex with the dog. The woman yelled at the man, calling him a “sick bastard” and he let go of the dog. The pooch, a male Australian shepherd, border collie mix, jumped down off the chair and ran off.

The man, 26 year old Christopher Bagwell, began pulling up his pants and approached the woman who fled and called police.

The dog was a male??
