He was allegedly caught by his 10-year-old son defiling the hen and he alerted the elder brother who ambushed him during incident and reported the matter to their local Chief leading to his arrest.
The man was said to have lured the chicken with maize and tied the mouth, then defiling it for a while before he was caught.
Unfortunately,the chicken died after it was brought to the police station as evidence but the Nyeri acting OCPD Joseph Muika says the hen will be taken to a veterinary clinic for a postmortem.
The man who showed no sign of remorse insisted that the chicken was his and had the right to do whatever he wished with it.
He is in police custody waiting to be arraigned in court to answer to bestiality charges.
