A COW fed up with s.exual abuse by a herd boy exposed him to his employer leading to his arrest, it was revealed this week.
A Bikita court heard that the owner of the beast started asking questions after noticing that the cow would angrily charge at the herd boy each time he came close.
Abel Gara pleaded guilty to bestiality when he appeared before Bikita magistrate, Carol Tafira.
He was sentenced to 8 months in prison term which was wholly suspended on condition Gara performs 280 hours of community service.
Prosecutor, Richard Nyamuomba, said on October 17 this year, Rumbadzi Mavhingere left Gara in charge of her cattle while she went for a business trip to Masvingo city.
Court heard that during Mavhingere’s absence Gara would tie the black cow against a pole in the kraal and had sexual intercourse with it.
The offence came to light when the owner returned home six days later.
She discovered that each time her cow saw Gara it became hostile towards him.
This prompted her to question Gara over the behaviour of the cow and he admitted having sexual intercourse with the animal. A report was made to the police, leading to the arrest of Gara.
