Bernard Archer, a 19-year old Georgia man, has been charged with two felony counts of bestiality after a surveillance camera caught him having sex with two dogs. The dogs belong to Dr. Cathryn Lafayette, who was paying for the man’s GED classes in return for his help with cleaning out her dog cages. Dr. Lafayette was awakened by the sheriff’s department with the news that a neighbor’s camera caught Archer engaging in sexual activities with her female canines. Lafayette says that she feels guilty that she wasn’t able to protect her pets from such a disturbing incident. KASL12 reports:
NEWTON COUNTY, GA (CBS ATLANTA) –
When you see Dr. Cathryn Lafayette interacting with her four pit bull dogs, it’s clear she loves them and they love her.
Lafayette said she was inside her home taking a nap on Saturday when someone knocked on her door. When she stepped outside, several Newton County deputies were in her yard.
“I’m thinking, ‘Oh my God, don’t tell me that the dogs got out,'” she said.
She was worried her dogs got out and attacked someone.
“A deputy told me I didn’t do anything wrong, I was the victim. I said, ‘Victim!’ I’m thinking, ‘Wait a minute, did someone kill my dog?’ He said, ‘No the neighbor behind you, they saw the teenager having sex with your female dogs.’ I said, ‘Having sex with my female dogs?’ I think they must have got it wrong,” said Lafayette.
Lafayette didn’t believe them until they showed her the video her neighbors recorded.
“And it showed him on his knees inside the kennel with my dog. He was on his knees like he was a dog,” said Lafayette.
Police arrested 19-year old Bernard Archer and charged him with two counts of bestiality.
