WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – Warren Police are investigating a report of a juvenile having sex with an animal, a case which will fall under the city’s new bestiality law.
The police department was contacted by Trumbull County Children Services to investigate the incident, which Children Services said happened earlier this month on Homewood Avenue. No other information on the juvenile or the animal involved was released.
Warren became the first Ohio city to make bestiality illegal after the case of a Warren man, Salvador Rendon, who investigators say had sex with two dogs multiple times for six years. He was sentenced to 90 days in jail, 60 of which were suspended in April.
The new legislation allows a judge to order the removal of the animals from the person suspected of abuse until the end of an investigation or trial.
