Dog raped by man in Ocean View

By Anele Mjekula

Cops and an animal welfare organisation say a dog owner was horrified to find out his pet Tessa had been raped.

The weak-looking dog is now in the care of Tears animal rescue in Ocean View.

The owner of the dog called the animal clinic to
complain that his dog was constipated and had difficulty urinating.

Heiny van Reenen, 19, says he noticed blood coming out of his beloved Tessa's behind and immediately informed the clinic last week.

And when the animal rescue vets examined the dog they discovered the horrible truth.

Heiny says he was shocked when members of the organisation showed him and his family pictures of the dog's injured genitals on Thursday and told them that Tessa had been raped.

"We had no idea that the dog was raped and we only found out when the people [from Tears] came to show us the pictures," he says.

Heiny says he cried when he saw how mutilated his beautiful dog was.

Ocean View police spokesperson Helena Mouton says Tessa is recuperating at Tears and they are investigating a case of animal cruelty.

"The owner of the dog says he initially thought there was something wrong with the dog when they took it to the clinic and after being examined the doctors found it had been raped," she says.

"When we noticed the blood coming out of her bum we thought she had difficulty relieving herself and a neighbour called the vet," he says.

The Daily Voice visited Tears but they declined to comment, saying they were still investigating.

    DISGUSTING! Poor Tessa. No creature deserves to have that done to them. The person who did that should be put to death, because I'm 100% sure it's not his first time, and if he does it to animals, he'll do it to people too. That sick freak shouldn't get away with this

    Another sick person in the society. He needs to rot in hell Anon, you need some serious medication. No animal will ever destroy another one,

    Anyone who doubts the efficacy of this poor animal being raped by a human needs to get their head read. Animals don't go around raping animals. It is not in their make-up - it IS in the human make-up though, selfish creatures that we are. Poor, poor little Tessa, I pray that you will racovery COMPLETELY and that the criminal who did this to you gets caught before any more helpless animals suffer the same fate!

    How i would love to stick an upside down pineapple into the backside of the sick person that did this to the poor dog! hope she gets better soon.

    I do not believe for one minute that a dog could have caused such severe damage to the genitals of this poor dog. Dogs don't rape other dogs to my knowledge. They don't set out to find a dog or two to rape. Humans think like that, the sick human race that we have become. I will be absolutely shocked to find out that another dog has raped Tessa. Tessa may all your wounds heal, including the invisible ones.

    Abosolutely shocking!!! How cruel can anyone be to do such an atrocious sickening act!! This person/s needs to be put in a cell with a group of rapists and repeatedly raped without any pity whatsoever and no medical treatment thereafter.
