A 50-year-old man was charged with having sex with a pit bull while on a tour of the Chicago Animal Care and Control Facility, prosecutors said Saturday.
Gerardo Perez, of the 2500 block of West 38th Street was charged with felony having sexual conduct with an animal, and burglary, after he was found having sexual relations with a pit bull at the city pound, according to police.
Perez was found in a cage with a white and grey pit bull by an employee after he entered a restricted area while on a tour of the Chicago Animal Care and Control Facility at 2741 S. Western Ave. on May 29, prosecutors said.
He was allegedly on his hands and knees on the side of the dog, appearing to have had just had sex with the animal, prosecutors said.
Perez then made "inculpatory statements" regarding the sexual conduct with the dog to other employees on the scene.
He was arrested at his home on Friday. Bail was reportedly set at $80,000 Saturday.
