Story in The Metro is a gift (horse)

71-year-old avoids jail over horse sex

A pensioner who performed a sex act on a horse has avoided being sent to prison.
David Chamberlin, 71, was spotted in a field with the horse's head in his groin by the animal's owner.
'The witness was shaken and disgusted by what he saw,' prosecutor Noelle Brockbank told Teeside Magistrates' Court.
'He picked up a stick and struck the defendant. That startled the horse, causing it to run off, dragging the defendant with it.'
