In an unbelievable case police have confirmed that a 61-year-old man from Dali has been arrested on suspicion of bestiality according to reports in local Cypriot press.
Phileleftheros (Φιλελεύθερος) noted that the case came to light following a complaint from an owner of livestock in Choirokoitia in the district of Larnaca. The farmer had told police that he had recently noticed changes in the behaviour of the animals he looks after and specifically in some sheep. A vet who then examined the animals found that some had injuries that may have been inflicted by a human.
Police officers monitored the livestock and discovered that a particular person was making visits. In an effort to determine what exactly was happening during the visits it was decided to install hidden cameras. On reviewing footage from the hidden cameras, police officers found to their surprise, that the 61-year-old suspect was sexually abusing the animals.
On Saturday, the 61-year-old was arrested and reportedly admitted to the disgraceful acts.
The suspect is expected to be brought before a court on Sunday so that a detention order may be issued.
