US man gets 10 years for choke, sexual assault on dog

LOS ANGELES (AFP) - A California man was sentenced this week to 10 years in prison for choking and sexually assaulting a chihuahua, and must now register as a sex offender, Sacramento prosecutors said on Saturday. Robert Edwards De Shields, who is confined to a wheelchair, was convicted last month of the crimes against the eight-month-old chihuahua mix living with the family of the South Sacramento home where he rented a living space. He was high on methamphetamine at the time of the attack. In March the owners found the dog almost lifeless, in pain and in shock, with De Shields in the garage. A veterinarian later found traces of asphyxiation, as well as serious injuries to the animal's rectum and internal organs. The chihuahua was only able to survive thanks to intensive medical care.
