Man banned from farms after admitting sex with goat
Wiltshire man also barred from going outdoors after 7pm 'in bid to protect the animals'
A 23-YEAR-OLD man has been banned from every farm in the country and ordered not to go out after 7pm after he admitted having sex with a goat.
Robert Newman of Devizes, Wiltshire pleaded guilty before Chippenham magistrates, having previously denied the charge in April. He was released on bail while a pre-sentence report is prepared and will be sentenced on 12 September.
Until then he has been told to remain indoors at night and not to visit any farms in what the Daily Mirror calls "a bid to protect the animals".
The case comes just a week after an American man was charged with six counts of crimes against nature and one count of cruelty to an animal after repeatedly having sex with a cat.
The Idaho Statesman reports that Ryan Tannenholz, 28, from Boise, Idaho, would dress up as a dog called called Bubblegum Husky before abusing the cat.
Last year a father-of-three from Gloucestershire was convicted of having sex with his ex-wife's dog - a four-year-old bull mastiff called Sasha - in her bed. He was placed on the sex offenders' register for five years.
Newman is not the first man to have been enamoured with a goat. In 2002, another 23-year-old, this one from Hull, was jailed for six months after he was spotted having sex with a goat by passengers on a packed commuter train that was stopped at signals between Hull and Bridlington.
When a man out walking with his grandson shouted at the perpetrator, the Evening Standard reported, he simply took the goat behind some tin sheets and emerged later with his trousers around his ankles. ·
