A man has been jailed for six weeks after admitting having sex with a goat in a barn in Wiltshire. Robert Newman, 23, carried out the night time attack on the animal in a barn in Devizes. The defence said his act was one of 'isolation, not depravity'.
Anna Humphreys, prosecuting, said Newman carried out the attack in the dark at a barn in Devizes. Reading a victim impact statement from the goat's female owner, who was not named, Miss Humphreys said: "My husband is worried about me being on the farm on my own.
"This person has cost us a considerable amount of money because we have had to install security cameras. We have also had to pay for vets fees and antibiotics for the injuries sustained by the goat."
