The victim of a sexual assault showed up to court to face her attacker. She was a goat.
Katana Kitsao Gona, a 28-year-old man from Kenya, was sentenced to 10 years in jail after admitting he had sex with a goat, KTN Kenya reported Friday.
The goat Gona was convicted of sexually abusing was present, brought there by prosecutors as evidence in the case.
Gona was caught committing the crime last Monday, Prosecuting Chief Inspector Jimmy Kema said.
The neighbor told prosecutors he went to urinate behind a bush, when he noticed clothes hanging on a tree. He investigated and found Gona, naked, having sex with the goat. The victim was tied up to graze, according to The Star.
The owner of the goat was alerted, along with other villagers who caught Gona engaging in the abuse. Police quickly took him into custody.
A report from the district's veterinary officer noted that blood was found coming from its vulva, further evidence of sexual abuse.
Though Gona asked for a pardon in court, saying he had a disabled wife who depended on him, Magistrate Mrs. Muthoni Nzibe gave him the 10-year sentence -- a record sentence in that court for bestiality.
Gona isn't the only busted goat abuser to make the news in recent months.
In August, U.K. man Robert Newman served a six-week sentence after admitting he had sex with a goat. He also had to register as a sex offender.
