Phuket Caveat: Man accused of bestiality says his prostitute turned into a donkey

PHUKET: Expat residents of Phuket are well accustomed to tales bizarre, but this one, reported by local media in Zimbabwe, may trump anything recorded in the Pearl of the Andaman to date.

A Zimbabwean court was taken by surprise yesterday when a man accused of bestiality claimed that a prostitute he had hired had transformed herself into a donkey overnight.

Sunday Moyo, 28, was arrested at around 4am local time on Sunday when officers on a routine patrol found him performing a sex act on a donkey in his yard in the Midlands of Zimbabwe. The animal was lying on the ground and had been tied by the neck to a tree, according to the local ZimEye news portal.

Moyo appeared in court on Monday but claimed he had no idea he was performing a sex act on a donkey. “Your worship, I only came to know that I was being intimate with a donkey when I got arrested,” he said, according to ZimEye.

“I had hired a prostitute and paid US$20 for the service at the Down Town night club, and I don’t know how she then became a donkey,” Moyo claimed, adding that he was now “seriously in love” with the animal.

The court ordered Moyo to be examined by two government psychiatrists and remanded him in custody until tomorrow, on a charge of bestiality. Both bestiality and prostitution are illegal in Zimbabwe.

Prostitution is illegal in Phuket, too, but practitioners in its thriving epicenter, Soi Bangla, are not worried as the law is simply not enforced. Tourists, however, may wish to exercise some caution. ‘Bangla’ is the Thai word for… donkey.
