Dog bites man

A friend was in court yesterday and told me about this case, she said I wouldn't believe it,

"A man on trial at Liverpool Crown Court charged with manslaughter has claimed that serious injuries to the dead man were caused by his dog. David Currie from Warrington died from a heart attack brought on by serious internal injuries he sustained during sex at the home of Steven Boyd.

But 47-year-old Boyd, from the Wirral, denies manslaughter and claimed that the injuries were caused by his dog Tosh, a great Dane/bull mastiff cross....
Prosecution counsel Andrew Edis QC said a police search of Boyd's home for the item which caused the serious internal injuries to Mr Currie was unsuccessful. "It may well be that the dog did have a habit of having sex with men, which is a pretty extraordinary proposition,"

So if they fail to get him on manslaughter will they charge him for bestiality?

Bestiality isn't a crime so far as I know. But the accused doesn' claim he had sex with the animal in any case, but that the deceased did.

At last, something legal to do in my spare time...
From what I gether from my chum in court other witnesses have suggested that this was common practice. Though the accused does deny it
