Man jailed for sex with donkey and horse

22 months' porridge follows having of oats

The 66-year-old man who in April pleaded guilty in Leicester Crown Court to charges of "buggery of a donkey between February 2 and February 5, 1999, and buggery of a horse between March 15 and 18, 2004", has been jailed for 22 months.

Joseph Squires - of "no stable address" - also admitted two charges of damaging property, "relating to the two animals on the same dates".

He was sent down today at the same court, having already served 126 days on remand, the Guardian notes. ®
