An Irishman who organized a bestiality sexual encounter with his dog and a woman he met online has avoided jail after the woman died after intercourse with the dog.
The woman, 43, died shortly after sex with the dog in the man’s Limerick home possibly due to an allergic reaction to the dog’s sperm.
However the judge found that Sean McDonnell was blameless in the death, The woman had come to his home of her own free will, and he had no idea that an allergic reaction would take place. The dog was later destroyed.
McDonnell lost his job as a bus driver and his family disowned him. He moved to Britain after publicity on his case forced him to leave home.
Judge Carroll Moran stated “even in this tolerant times, acts of bestiality are socially repugnant,” but said a custodial sentence was not called for.
The judge said he was “shocked” when informed the man had 1.5 million hits on porn sites over a five month period, reports the Limerick Leader. He ordered him to go to counseling and placed him on the sex offender’s list.
Wheel, boy! Sheepdog who was paralysed by a bullet keeps rolling along with specially-made walker
- Rescue centre did not have the heart to put Abayed down
- Abayed gets around on his wheels after his back legs stopped working
- He is a happy pet, but still misses his sheep herding days

Former herding dog Abayed nearly died when he was shot two years ago, but he is back up on his paws again now that he has a custom-made wheeled harness to get him about.
A stranger mistook six-year-old Abayed as a stray dog when he was running outside and tried to kill him as part of a programme to cut down on stray dogs in Jordan.
His distraught owners, who were shepherds, found him howling in pain and unable to move.
His owners rushed him to the Humane Center for Animal Welfare near the capital Amman to see if anything could be done for him.
The shelter did think about putting Abayed down, but the director of the centre said ‘It was clear that this animal wanted to live’ so they set about finding him a way to walk again.

Eventually they managed to import a special wheeled harness for him, giving him a new lease of life.
The shepherds could not look after him after he lost the use of his legs, so they gave him over to the animal centre, where he can get up the ramps with no trouble.
Wonky goes walkies after getting his legs straightened out! New leash of life for abandoned puppy with disabled joints

When the world was first introduced to Wonky the puppy earlier this month, she cut a pitiful figure.
The little Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross was given the unusual name because of severe problems with her malformed front legs, which failed to develop after she was separated from her mother.
But now, after intense physiotherapy, the 12-week-old has quickly made a fantastic recovery.
Where once she walked awkwardly on bent joints, she can now bound along normally, her tail wagging as she goes.

WONKY TWO WEEKS AGO…
And staff at the Dogs Trust in Leeds, where she is being treated, have also given her a new name – Juliette.
John Wannop, a vet at the centre, told how the puppy was taken there on February 9 with contracted flexor tendons on the back of her front legs – leading to a condition known as ‘knuckling’.
Knuckling of the carpal joints is caused by contraction of the tendons which prevents the wrist joint from extending fully – and meant her front feet bended inwards because her tendons were too short.
He said that without treatment, it would have been impossible for Juliette to straighten her legs.

She was found wandering the streets as a stray and was brought to the Dogs Trust by a member of the public.
Because of her unorthodox looks, there had been concern she would struggle to find a new home.
In fact, 600 people have so far applied to give Juliette a home, and staff are still sifting through applications.
Amanda Sands, manager at the trust, said: ‘She’s had a very tough start in life. She was taken from her mother too early and was then having to fend for herself on the streets at just nine weeks old.
‘She isn’t a traditionally pretty pooch but she’s a lovely girl with a great character.
‘We really hope people can see beyond appearances and someone can give her the fresh start she deserves – a new home where she’ll be loved and cared for.’
With further physiotherapy, the prognosis for Juliette is good.
And since the trust wants her kept under review, it would prefer her to be rehoused in Leeds.
‘It’s such a sad case because this was completely preventable if only she’d had the right love and care,’ Ms Sands said.
‘She had not had the right supplements to enable her to grow properly and so her front legs were too weak.
‘We don’t know everything about her background but we think that she was removed from her mother too early and was then abandoned. She had not had the right nutrition and a poor diet meant her front legs were underdeveloped.’
She added: ‘Physiotherapy will really help to strengthen her muscles. We have to stretch her legs into a straight position 30 times twice a day.
‘She will need regular trips to the specialist vet to keep a track of her progress.
‘With the right treatment, she will hopefully be able to live a normal life and do all the things a puppy should be able to enjoy.
Staff are looking for owners who can continue her physiotherapy – with costs supplemented by Dogs Trust.
It is the UK’s largest dog welfare charity and cares for more than 16,000 stray and abandoned dogs each year through its network of 18 Rehoming Centres across the UK and one in Dublin.
Amanda Francis spokesman for the charity said: ‘Usually, physical deformity is the result of unscrupulous breeders or they haven’t been properly looked after and most of the time it’s something that is completely preventable.’
If you would like to give Juliette a new home, contact Dogs Trust Leeds on 0113 281 4920.
