DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Sept. 21 (UPI) -- A Florida man pleaded guilty to charges that he fondled and raped an emaciated pit bull puppy, according to the State Attorney's Office.

WTLV reports that two neighbors saw James Guy Bull, 62, fondling his 8-month-old pit bull on several occasions despite the animal's yelps. In one instance, one of the neighbors saw Bull actually having intercourse with the puppy, but Bull "pulled up his pants and put the dog down" once he realized he was being watched.

The female puppy was discovered by police after the neighbors came forward to authorities in March. The emaciated pup -- now named "Rose" and residing with an animal rescue group -- had been chained to a post with "8 inches of free reign, no water, no shelter and no food," and was visibly frightened.

Bull pleaded guilty Friday to multiple felonies and misdemeanors involving animal cruelty and sexual activities with animals. He received a sentence of five years in a state prison.
