A man was arrested, charged and convicted of bestiality after being caught having sex with a goat, prosecutors in Zimbabwe said.

39-year-old Mafanele Mafanele of Chiredzi, recently served 60 days in jail for having sex with a goat.

Last week, he was sentenced to six months in jail after he was caught committing the same offense with the same goat. Judge Geraldine Mutsotso sentenced Mafanele, after he pleaded guilty to charges of bestiality.

According to the police investigation, Mafanele bumped into his neighbor’s goat as it grazing unattended in the fields. He then chased and caught the goat before having sex with it.

A passerby who witnesses the defendant’s actions, detained him and called the police.

Mafanele was initially sentenced to 12 months in prison, but six months were suspended for five years on condition that he does not commit the same offense again.
