Authorities were called to Zoo in Berlin, Germany after receiving reports of a Syrian man raping a horse in front distressed children.The cruel display of animal cruelty was witnessed by both parents and children, with one woman stating “this has never happened before”.The incident occurred around 3 pm on Friday, November 3 at the Kinderbauernhof children’s farm.
The Syrian man was first spotted by a babysitter who was visiting the zoo with her child.“My babysitter was at Goerlitzer Park with our son when they witnessed the man carrying out a sexual act on the pony,” the woman told Berliner Morgenpost. The woman then refused to detail what she had witnessed due to being too “traumatized”.
Infowars reports: An employee of the zoo told the newspaper that the babysitter had taken a photo of the man as he committed the act, and immediately contacted park staff, who called the police.When he realized that he had been seen, the young man got off the animal and disappeared into the park.
Having seen the photo, park wardens found the man and apprehended him before he left the park; they then handed him over to police.Berlin police have confirmed that a 23-year-old from Syria is facing charges for violating the Animal Welfare Act and “causing a public nuisance through sexual acts.”
The first charge carries a sentence of up to three years in prison or a fine, while the second carries a sentence of up to one year in prison or a fine.
A favorite among young families, the children’s zoo in Berlin is home to two ponies, two donkeys, half a dozen sheep and goats as well as about ten each of chickens, ducks and rabbits.The zoo employee said that all the staff are very disappointed about the rape and hope it won’t leave a lasting impression on the park’s reputation.
“Positive things happen here all year round. It’s a shame that we are now being associated with such an incident.”
“He [the suspect] is banned from our premises. If he comes back, we will report him. Something like this has never happened here before,” she declared.
