The alleged incident happened in Norrköping last Thursday. The man is said to have suddenly taken his friend’s dog, a mongrel bitch, into his bathroom and sexually attacked it, local paper Folkbladet reports. He allegedly gave no warning of what he was about to do.
The dog howled of pain during the attack, the dog owner, 18, told police. Hearing the commotion, he claims he opened the bathroom door to find his friend having sex with the dog. The friend continued the attack as the dog owner looked on.
He said he was too afraid to intervene, as his friend was bigger and stronger than him.
Police in Norrköping are currently investigating the allegations. Swedish law does not expressly ban sex with animals , but the police are considering charges of animal cruelty. The accused man’s reaction to the allegations is so far unknown, according to Folkbladet.
