Texas Man Indicted for Bestiality After Filming Himself Sexually Assaulting and Killing Dog

Gregory Moseley Lopez III, 18

TEMPLE, Texas (KWTX) – A Temple teen has been indicted by a grand jury on charges he allegedly sexually assaulted and killed a canine at his home, according to court documents obtained by KWTX.

Under Texas law, the crime of bestiality is a state jail felony. The act is upgraded to a second-degree felony, however, if performed in front of a minor or if the offender causes serious bodily injury or kills the animal. A second-degree felony carries a minimum sentence of two years in prison.

According to an arrest affidavit obtained by KWTX, an officer with the Temple Police Department on Feb. 16, 2022 responded to Temple High School in connection with a report about a disturbing video being shown to a student. One student, later identified as Lopez, had reportedly shown another student a cell phone video in which Lopez could be seen sexually abusing and stabbing a canine.

“Evidence from the phone showed that abuse and subsequent death of the dog took place in December 2021, at [Lopez’s] residence,” the affidavit reportedly states, though jail records reviewed by Law&Crime list the offense date as Feb. 18, 2022—when Lopez was initially booked.

Apparently there was a child under the age of 18 present in the home during the crime.
