A man in Pensacola, Florida has been arrested after a family member claims he sexually assaulted the family pet, a pit bull, “at least 100 times.”
23-year-old Bradley Jean Hubbard was arrested Monday at his home after the family member went to authorities and claimed that the dog, named “Baby Girl,” had been molested countless times by him while he lived with his father and his father’s girlfriend. He lived there for three years.
It’s unclear why this family member waited so long, but she said she’d seen him take the dog to his bedroom and watched through a hole in his door as he sexually assaulted the dog. She says it happened at least 100 times in the past several years, if not more.
She said she’d heard the dog whimper and “cry out in pain” during the sessions, and says he did it more and more frequently over time. She claims that the dog eventually stopped making noises during the assaults. When family members mentioned the dog’s symptoms, Hubbard would brush them off as her being in heat.
The unidentified family member finally reported the behavior to authorities on December 28th after he’d allegedly come into her bedroom, grabbed the dog, and took it to his bedroom. He’d then close and lock his door. When she heard the faint noises, she “could not take it anymore,” so ran outside and called the cops.
Mr. Hubbard’s father denied the allegations against his son, but the informant says that he’s “covered up” for him in the past.
The dog was taken to a vet for a rape kit, and it was noted that the dog’s genitalia showed signs consistent with abuse.
He’s been charged with engaging in sexual conduct with an animal and causing death, pain or suffering to an animal.
He’s now being held in the Escambia County Jail in lieu of a $15,000 bond, and is due in court on February 2nd.
