Man sentenced for rape of dog

Man who admitted to raping a dog given maximum sentence

An Oregon man, who admitted to raping his fiancee’s dog, has been given the maximum sentence for his crime. As reported by the Oregonian, a judge sentenced 52-year-old Fidel Lopez to probation and jail time for his November 2018 attack on Estrella, a Lhasa Apso mix.

Lopez’s attack left the little dog bloodied and terrified – the man’s fiancee noticed blood and injuries on the dog’s hind end and contacted the authorities. When questioned, Lopez admitted that he had raped the dog to “sexually arouse himself.”

DNA, obtained from a rape kit, positively linked Lopez to the crime – the dog’s owner had requested that the test be done because Lopez had spoken about bestiality in the past.

Lopez is prohibited from owning pets for 15 years – he was also sentenced to 60 days in jail and three years of probation. The judge informed him that this was the maximum allowable sentence and he would have given him a harsher sentence if the law allowed.

Estrella had to be humanely euthanized because of severe internal injuries.

    WHAT?! I agree with the judge; he would have given a much harsher sentence, but the law is weak. Let’s make tougher laws for this sort of evil conduct! Sixty days in jail is not near enough, when this poor small dog had to be euthanized!
    Castrate this sick pervert!

    I really have had my fill with journalists referring to these savage, brutal maggot scumbags as men or women. They are not. They are male or female but they are not men or women. I think any journalist who refers to these assholes as a man or woman is guilty of enabling them to consider themselves part of the human race and to be treated as such. I’m sorry if any journalist reads this and doesn’t like it, but I’ve written many times and it is perfectly okay to refer to somebody as a male or female. It can be done without offending anybody.

    I never realized that beastiality was an issue until reading stories on the Pet Rescue report. It occurs far more frequently then I would have ever imagined. My guess is many lawmakers are in the dark on this as I was and that they need to have this brought to their attention so as to pass stricter penalties for this type of thing.
