PITSANULOKE: An errant monk was caught in a compromising position on November 5 after he suffered a stroke while having sex with a temple dog behind Sam Toei Temple in Wat Thong District.
Villagers were drawn to the scene by the howls of protest from the dog, which the monk had lashed to a tree.
After seeing the monk in flagrante delicto with the heavily pregnant Thai Bangkaew dog, villagers called the police.
By the time officers arrived on the scene, the excitement had obviously been too much for the 65-year-old monk to take.
He was found lying unconscious next to the animal. A bottle of dishwashing liquid was found next to the monk, presumably for use as a makeshift lubricant.
Rescuers rushed the monk to hospital, where he remains in a coma. Doctors said he had suffered a stroke and are not sure if he will survive.
The cleric was identified in Thailand’s best-selling daily newspaper as Phrapan Chitutasaro,
The abbot of Wat Sam Toei, Phramali Dhamachantho, said Phrapan had been at the temple for only a few days.
Temple authorities were preparing to ask him to leave because he had refused to provide references from his former temple.
Police did not say what Phrapan would be charged with if he regains consciousness.
