(SUNTIMES) — 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.
