Dog wanted me to have sex with it – accused
By Shellee Geduld
A Cape Town man has appeared in court for allegedly having sex with his neighbour’s poodle.
Anthony Julies appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court yesterday where he faces charges of bestiality.
The charges relate to an incident in June this year when the Lavender Hill man’s neighbour claimed he witnessed the man having sex with his little pet.
A source close to the investigation reveals that police believe Julies, 47, may have been high on drugs at the time of the alleged incident.
“He did this in front of his neighbour and he didn’t even try to stop when his neighbours told him to,” says the source.
“According to the witnesses, the suspect told them to leave him alone when they tried to stop him.
“He said he must finish because he couldn’t start and then stop because that wasn’t right.”
The source says Julies allegedly also told cops that the little dog wanted him to have sex with it.
“He allegedly also said that the dog mustn’t flaunt herself like that to him,” says the source.
Court documents say Julies was arrested on June 15 after his neighbours called the police and reported the incident.
He appeared in court on June 17 where prosecutors told the court that the dog’s private parts were damaged from the alleged penetration.
The court set Julies bail of R500 and it was paid the next day.
Yesterday, Prosecutor TJ Mkuva told Magistrate Hafiza Mohamed that cops have wrapped up their investigation and were ready to proceed with the trial.
Julies insisted that he wanted to represent himself during the case and refused Mohamed’s suggestion that he appoint a Legal Aid lawyer.
