A man from Pensacola faces charges of bestiality after a member of the family reported ongoing abuse to the family dog. On Monday, Bradley Jean Hubbard, 23, was arrested and charged with sexually abusing a bull dog mix named “Baby Girl.” According to the News Journal, Hubbard has resided with his father and his father’s girlfriend for the last three years.
A family member reported the disturbing situation after telling authorities she had witnessed the suspect take the dog into his room. The woman told police the assaults had been happening for years and had gone on more than 100 times. She stated she had witnessed the attacks through a hole in the man’s bedroom door as the result of a past violent outburst.
The woman described the dog whimpering in pain, and that the frequency of the sexual assaults had recently increased prompting the woman to notify police fearing the dog’s safety. When ever anyone would ask about the dog’s physical symptoms, Hubbard told them “Baby Girl” was in heat. She said she finally had enough, when on December 28, Hubbard allegedly came into her bedroom, grabbed the dog and took her into his bedroom after which she heard the dog crying out in pain and said she couldn’t take it any longer.
Baby Girl has since been removed from the home, and a veterinarian examination shows her genitalia abused consistent with rape. The report states the dog is very aggressive and only loyal to one person at a time. Can anyone blame her? In 2011, Florida passed a bestiality law. Read more here.
Hubbard remains at the Escambia County Jail in lieu of $15,000 bond. He faces charges of engaging in sexual conduct with an animal and causing pain and suffering.
