Chicago Man Charged In Sex Act With Pit Bull At City Pound

CHICAGO (STMW) -- A Chicago man has been charged with a sex act with a pit bull at the city animal pound.

According to the bizarre story told Saturday in Cook County Bond Court, Gerardo Perez, 50, had been taking a tour of the Chicago Animal Care and Control Facility at 2741 S. Western Ave. on Wednesday and left the tour group.

An employee later spotted Perez in a restricted area of the facility and told him to leave, then walked away, a prosecutor said.

The employee "returned a short time later and found [the] defendant still in a cage with a white and gray pit bull," Assistant Cook County State's Attorney Amanda Pillsbury told Cook County Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil. "Defendant made inculpatory statements regarding sexual conduct with the dog to other facility employees."

A security guard demanded Perez's driver's license, and police went to the man's home on Friday and arrested him on two charges: felony sexual conduct with an animal and burglary.

Kuriakos Ciesil ordered Perez, of the 2500 block of West 38th Street, jailed Saturday in lieu of $80,000 bail.
