Man convicted of having sex with pet dog
A father of three has been found guilty of having sex with his ex-wife's bull mastiff dog.
Kelly Thacker told Gloucester Crown Court she was shocked to discover her ex-husband Nicholas Saunders, 46, in her bed having intercourse with the animal on January 15 last year.
During the two-day trial Ms Thacker, who has teenage twins with Saunders, told the court she had rejected her ex-husband's advances towards her after he had a fight with his girlfriend and had sought comfort at her home.
It was soon afterwards she found him having sex with her female dog, Sasha. Saunders, who separated from Ms Thacker 13 years ago, denied the charge and claimed his ex-wife had seen him merely "climbing over the dog" to get out of bed to use the toilet.

As the jury of five men and seven women returned the unanimous verdict Saunders, dressed in a dark suit and tie, looked to the floor and shook his head. Recorder Stewart Patterson adjourned the case for pre-sentence reports to be completed.
