A Port Elizabeth dog owner has been cleared of sexually abusing two dogs after the dogs underwent a full rape examination.
According to The Star, the owner was accused of bestiality after allegedly being caught in the act. The incident was reported to the Schauderville police in Port Elizabeth and the animals taken from their owner.
An animal rights group then circulated an e-mail suggesting that the incidents were not isolated and that a case of bestiality had been reported to the sexual offenses court as “bestiality is not reflected under the Animal Protection Act”.
But following a full rape examination on the dogs by a private clinic, no evidence of sexual assualt was found.
The man who rescued the dogs said that the person who witnessed the alleged bestiality may have been incorrect.
“It was dark and (the witness) may not have seen exactly what happened,” he said.
The dogs, though, have not been returned to the owner.
