The 45-year-old man was caught having sex with his neighbour’s dog after a child heard the animal howling in a garden.
Following his arrest, the father of six was arraigned before magistrate Syta Prinsloo in Johannesburg, South Africa, who described the act as “serious, unnatural and barbaric”.
When the charge of bestiality was read to him, Mochachi pleaded guilty.
Prinsloo said, “Worse still is that you are married and a role model to your six children.
“Upsetting is that you will be expected to engage sexually with your wife, how will you explain this to her?”
