What’s worse than being sentenced to 10 years in prison? Some would say that a longer sentence would be the only thing that could possibly be worse, but one man found that it’s just as bad to be sentenced while the victim watches.
Katana Kitsao Gona of Kenya was sentenced to 10 years behind bars after he pleaded guilty for having sex with his neighbor’s goat. What makes this particular case more interesting than the other bestiality cases that pop up in Kenya from time to time is that Gona was sentenced while the goat watched on from inside the courtroom.
Now, it’s not uncommon for the victims to be present for the sentencing of their attackers, but this might be the first time that the animal on the receiving end of abuse has been present for the sentencing of its abuser. One can only imagine that the goat felt vindicated that the man behind its pricey therapy bills was finally put behind bars.
Strangely enough, this isn’t the first incident of goat sex to be punished in Kenya this year. In June, an unnamed Kenyan man was arrested after he was caught having sex with his employer’s donkey behind a bush. In the case of Gona, a goat was once again tied behind a bush, and he was only caught after a random onlooker stumbled upon the scene when looking for a good bush to urinate in.
Wrong place, wrong time for just about every party involved it seems.
