NEWTON COUNTY, Ga. (CBS Atlanta) — Authorities arrest a 19-year-old man after they say he was caught having sex on camera with a pit bull.
According to an incident report provided to CBS Atlanta by the Newton County police, authorities were called on March 3 in regards to the crime.
“Dispatch advised [that] home owners … witnessed a young black male having sexual intercourse with two dogs,” the report states.
Bernard Archer was named as the offender on the report.
WGCL-TV reports that Archer was hired to clean the cages of several pit bulls by Dr. Cathryn Lafayette, a local resident who owned the dogs and offered the job to Archer in exchange for funding his education.
“Our agreement was if I pay the tuition [for his GED] then he would pay half by working here at my home or whatever I had for him to do,” Lafayette told the station. “Saturday was his first day to start working.”
But on Saturday, Lafayette was woken up from a nap by the Newton County police, who informed her of Archer’s crimes against her animals.
Though initially skeptical of the claims, she was convinced when authorities showed her video evidence.
“And it showed him on his knees inside the kennel with my dog. He was on his knees like he was a dog,” she told the station. “For him to come on my property and rape my female dogs, that’s totally unheard of and that hurt me. I wasn’t here to protect them.”
Archer was apprehended and charged with two counts of bestiality.
