MANILA - An 18-year-old boy was arrested after he was caught in the act of having sex with a goat in Leon, Iloilo.

Eliseo Minerva immediately called police to report the incident.

Minerva said he saw the boy on top of the goat when he was about to feed the animal.

The goat was already dead when authorities arrived, reports said.

However, the boy allegedly admitted that he was drunk when he committed the incident.

Reports said that the boy’s parents will have to pay for damages to the goat’s owner.

Meanwhile, Leon Police admitted they cannot pursue a case against the boy because there is no law that prohibits a person from having sex with animals.

Leon residents now fear that the “suspect” might victimize girls as soon as he is released from jail.

The municipal social welfare office said the boy should undergo neurological tests to determine what drove him to have sex with an animal.
