Wilmington man accused of sexually abusing dog

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – A Wilmington man is accused of raping a dog outside of a home on Bagley Avenue.

Wilmington police say a witness sitting in a parked car at a nearby church saw Sisto Michael Fea, 24, walk out of the home holding a small black dog.  The witness told police Fea raped the dog. When the dog reacted, Fea dropped the dog and kicked it. The dog then ran off.

The witness claims a short time later, Fea walked out of the home and did it again. The witness turned on their headlights and Fea went back inside.

Police obtained a warrant for Fea.

He was arrested on Saturday. The dog was taken into custody.

Fea is charged with crimes against nature, felony cruelty to animals and a misdemeanor charge of cruelty to animals.

His bond was set at $50,000.

According the the StarNews, during Fea’s first court appearance Judge Sandra Ray was not willing to release Fea without a bond. Instead, she reduced his bail to $25,000. If Fea makes bail, Ray ordered, he is to be on electronic monitoring.

Lola, who is currently being housed in the New Hanover County Animal Services shelter, is going to stay with a foster family, Jordan said in court. Ray ordered Fea to stay away from the animal and that Lola not be released to Fea’s roommates or family.
