If a dog bites a man, it is not really strange, but when a man bites a dog, it makes headlines.

That is the situation a dog found itself after it was raped by Fanroi Mochachi, a married father-of-six.

Mochachi was caught having sex with eight-month-old Blackie by her 10-year-old owner and his uncle after they heard the pet's cries.

He claimed he had caught 2 dogs mating on his way to a shared toilet and was overcome by temptation, chased the male mutt away and then took over the sex session with female dog.

A magistrate, Syta Prinsloo, branded the dad's disgusting session as "serious, unnatural and barbaric".

"Worse still is that you are married and a role model to your six children.

"Upsetting is that you will be expected to engage sexually with your wife, how will you explain this to her?"

Mochachi got a suspended five-year jail sentence after he pleaded guilty to bestiality in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The slap-in-the-wrist sentence has, however, spurred a wave of criticism from Prevention of Cruelty to Animals as well as the Women and Men Against Child Abuse.

Both organisations expressed concern about the sentence as Mochachi was now "roaming the streets unchecked".

They called for harsher sentence "regarding the sexual violation of animals which, like children, are completely helpless to stop such violent attacks on them".
