Karoi(ZimEye) A Tengwe man has been sentenced to 210 community service hours after being found guilty of having sex with a neighbour’s cow.
Jelous Matashu(23) admitted committing the detestable offence of bestiality before Karoi magistrate Elisha Singano.
The court heard that on the 24th August after 7am, Matashu seeing the herd of cattle, singled out the white heifer, forcefully tied it to a tree and began to have sex with it having climbed the animal from behind.
Within minutes of having started, he was however spotted by the owner Henry Tandabute who charged at him, freeing the animal afterwards.
Local magistrate Elisha Singano sentenced Matashu to 210 community service hours at Tengwe’s Marere Clinic. The judge said it there would be no further gain of sentencing Matashu to prison.
Zimbabwe has seen many cases of animal sexual abuse in the past four years and recently a goat gave birth to a half human-half goat child which died upon delivery.
