A father who had unprotected sex with a dog was jailed for seven months today.
Chung Lin Fai, 58, pleaded guilty on the count of bestiality.
He told the probation officer at West Kowloon Magistrate's Court that he had been suffering memory loss from alcoholism and at the time of the incident, he 'heard a female voice had told him to do so.'

Magistrate Raymond Wong Kwok Fai explained that due to the seriousness of the case and the increased penalty in animal cruelty law, Chung's sentence is set to be nine months and up, according to Apple Daily.
However as the defendant had previously pleaded guilty, he decided to reduce the sentence.
The case is the second bestiality conviction in Hong Kong.
In February 13, 2000, a 48-year-old man was caught having sex with a dog in a public toilet and was jailed for two months on a guilty plea.
The father of three admitted that he had lured the two-year-old stray animal using bread in Tung Chung on southwest Hong Kong's Lantau Island on his arrest on February 9.
He then pleaded guilty in the court on April 7, saying that it was a 'momentary lapse of judgement' and the dog did not resist at the time, according to Hong Kong Free Press.

Chung, who is a former construction worker, said that he had bathed the dog in a stream before having unprotected sex with the animal on February 1.
An examination report from the vet indicated that there was human semen inside the canine.
A vaginal inflammation and blood were also found on the dog.
The incident is said to have been witnessed by an animal volunteer.
According to HK01, the volunteer, surnamed Chan, saw the suspect luring the cream-coloured mongrel onto a hill. Ms Chan took a picture of Mr Chung as she worried about the dog.
Ms Chan waited around for about two hours and saw the same dog appearing in distress later. Injuries were reported to be found by the volunteer around the dog's genitals.
The woman immediately called the police.
Chung was arrested on February 9 and he admitted the act to the police during questioning
Acting principal magistrate said Mr Chung's behaviour 'is extremely revolting'
Officers from Lantau Police Bureau arrived on the scene after receiving Ms Chan's report. They took the injured dog to the Tung Chung Animal Clinic for inspection.
The dog suffered vaginal fissures and bleeding, according to the vet, as reported by HK01. The animal's private parts were said to be swollen and human semen had been found inside.
The man is married and has three children.
The man told Acting Principal Magistrate, So Wai Tak, that he put his finger into the canine's private parts while taking a bath for the dog.
He also said he hadn't used protection during sex with the dog.
So Wai Tak said: 'Defendant, your behaviour is extremely revolting.' The Acting Principal Magistrate also said that an imprisonment would be 'inevitable'.
The father-of-three said he had been bathing the dog in the stream for nearly two years, and this was the first time he had ever had sex with a canine.
In mitigation, Mr Chung's lawyer said the man had been an alcoholic with hearing impairment, and had had injuries from work. Since the case came to light, Mr Chung had lost his job.
