Dog walker pleads guilty to bestiality charges, sentenced to probation

See also

According to Friday's CBC News, a volunteer dog walker for the Moncton SPCA, in New Brunswick, has been sentenced to two years of probation for acts of bestiality.

Though Judge Jòlene Richard described 30-year-old Anthony Volgmann's behavior as "perverse," and "deviant," the man was not sentenced to any jail time.

Volgmann engaged in sexual acts with dogs who were entrusted to his care between January and September of 2012.

The man then posted images of the sexual activity on the internet - it was those disturbing images on a bestiality website which ultimately landed Volgmann in hot water with the RCMP.

During the time that Volgmann is on probation, he is prohibited from being around dogs and/or owning them. He must also refrain from using or accessing computers or other internet capable devices, unless he is at work, or being supervised.

Judge Richard decided to forgo jail time for the man, who pleaded guilty to his charges, because he had no prior history and he cooperated with the authorities.
