OMG PD: Man Charged with Raping Dog in Allentown

Police say a Bethlehem man raped and injured a Shih-Tzu at an Allentown residence

A Bethlehem man has been charged with having sexual intercourse with an animal and cruelty to animals after he allegedly raped a dog in Allentown on Friday, according to court records.

Police say Juan Sanabria-Hernandez, 26, sexually assault a Shih-Tzu at the home of the dog's owner, Angela Rivera, who later noticed that the dog was hurt and acting unusual, according to a Lehigh Valley Live report.

Sanabria-Hernandez is free on bail awaiting a preliminary hearing scheduled for Oct. 29.

The case may sound appalling but it's not unheard of:

My heart goes out to this little doggie, because I have one and I just can't imagine the pain she must have been in. He really need to be castrated, so he can't harm an animal or a little. I'm sorry for saying that, but he is the devil in disguise.

How sad, what a sick scumbag. Cruelty to animals needs a higher rate of punishment, especially one like this.

Exodus 22:19 “Anyone who has sexual relations with an animal must be put to death.

I posted the Bible reference to show that this is considered very wicked. In Exodus there are several offenses listed as punishable by death for the Israelites. We as a society tend to make fun of people who care about the Bible, yet the less it is taught and the less we pray and care for each other, the more people just do what is right "in their own eyes". When we do what is right in our own eyes...we are digging a deep pit of sin. Perhaps this man was taught that we all evolved. In that case, why would he think that this is wrong. When you know that you are made in the image of God, you behave differently and are convicted inside that you are to care for animals, not rape them. In my opinion we would all be MUCH healthier if we did not even eat animals (but then again I admit that I grew up eating meat and therefore crave it from time to time). Now that I think of it, SHOULD we eat meat ? Why is it acceptable to eat some meat and not this particular dog? uhhh next article may be about someone eating their dog.
