Brian Louis George L. Chapman, 21, a northern Minnesota mailman was charged with one count of second-degree burglary, a felony, and one count of bestiality after being caught by one of the homeowners that he was having sexual intercourse with a dog on February in a resident’s garage.
According to the criminal complaint, when Chapman delivered mail in Crookston, Minnesota, a rural resident noticed that he took some time in his garage when supposed to be, he only needs to drop the packages and leave. The owner checked his surveillance camera at one point from 1:30 pm on February 6 and saw the postman broke into his garage and began performing sexual act with his dog.
Polk County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Kyle Olson checked the footage himself and proved the allegation filed against the postman.
The U.S. Postal Service did not respond immediately when they were asked for comment on Chapman’s employment status according to Pioneer Press.
In Minnesota, bestiality, which is classified as a “misdemeanor,” carries a maximum sentence of 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. Burglary in the second degree can carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a potential $20,000 fine.
In addition, last month, an animal shelter worker from Louisiana was arrested after having sex with a dog. In January, a 30-year-old firefighting clown was also arrested for having sex with a dog according to KLSA report.
According to Pet-Abuse.com, animal sexual abuse is quite common. Between 2009 and 2013, in 32 U.S. states, 77 bestiality cases were reported. Animals that were involved include dogs, puppies, cats, horses, foals, goats, pigs, show hogs, lambs, cows and mice.
Other states require the defendant to undergo counseling and psychological assessments, and some prohibit the offender from owning or living with animals.
Unfortunately, bestiality is still technically legal in 10 states in the country: Hawaii, Kentucky, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio, Texas, Vermont, West Virginia, Wyoming and the District of Columbia according to Indy100.
