Thomas Robert Edwards, 20, was found guilty yesterday of attempting to have sex with a rottweiler.
A witness claimed to have seen Edwards grab the rottweiler by its hind legs and thrust himself at it for about twenty or thirty seconds. Edwards claimed he had merely been stroking the dog in the backyard, where he had gone to have a smoke and relieve himself.
The court was told that the accused was drunk at the time of the incident, on August 30th this year, He then went to a party at a house in the suburbs Wrexham where the offence took place in the early hours of the morning.
Richard Williams, a neighbour, said he been awoken in the early hours by noises coming from the garden next door. On looking out of the window he claims to have seen Edwards trying to penetrate the female dog. He then knocked on the window, shortly after which Edwards returned into the house claiming he hadn’t done anything.
Edwards strongly denied the allegations and Andrew Green, defending, questioned the witness statement saying that Mr Williams may have mistaken what he saw.
