.Devizes man Robert Newman jailed for sex with goat
A man has been jailed after he admitted having sex with a goat.
Robert Newman, 23, assaulted the animal in a barn in Devizes, Wiltshire in April.
Newman, of Potterne Road, Devizes, initially denied the charge but later changed his plea.
Newman was jailed for six weeks for the attack, which North West Wiltshire Magistrates' Court heard had left the goat needing veterinary treatment.
At the time of the assault Newman was the subject of an eight week suspended sentence for a burglary in August last year.
Gail Chilcott, chair of the bench, activated the suspended sentence, which will run concurrently.
