Man Charged with Raping Dog

Police say a Bethlehem man raped a Shih-Tzu at a home in Allentown.

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 assaulted 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:

I am getting to the point where I really can not handle reading or hearing about these sick things anymore. The disturbing acts stick with me and bother me to a point that I can't go on normally with my day. I think any kind of brutal sexual assault such as this on children OR animals should invoke life imprisonment with castration or death. Truly, we have to do something DRASTIC to stop this cycle of sickness. -CantTakeItAnymoreInAllentown

Not sure why the reporter uses the terminology of "engaged in sexual intercourse" when that's not really accurate. This POS RAPED this poor little dog...PERIOD! I shudder to think of how many other dogs or children this scumbag has raped in his lifetime!!! Cut it off, lock him up in a cell block full of animal lovers and throw away the key!!!

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Couras-Journey/498586503534010 This is a dog named Coura who was beaten badly and raped by a human. I am sick over this, I cannot imagine what this pour creature went through. Her uterus is prolapsed now and her eyes are blood red from strangulation. She is so afraid. I want to hold her. PLEASE put "humans" that are capable of doing this in prison and please castrate them. This is beyond sick. :(
