“This is one sick perverted & disturbed Neanderthal! He’s already served prison for killing a  chicken whilst having sex with it! Then in 2007 authorities seized papers depicting sexual contact between man & beast! The Justice system should take his prior offences as serious warnings, that he may do something even worse if allowed back into society! One look at his face is enough to give you the creeps! It’s high time this monster was sectioned & locked away for good; to keep both animals & humans safe, I certainly wouldn’t want him living in my neighbourhood! “

The attorney for a man charged with bestiality, killing a domestic animal, torturing or mutilating a vertebrate animal and theft is seeking evaluations by mental health professionals to determine the man’s competency to stand trial.

Defense attorney Casey McCloskey filed the request on behalf of Michael Charles Bessigano, 42, who was charged March 8 after authorities discovered a mutilated Guinea hen on Nov. 14 at Buckley Homestead County Park in Lowell. Several animals had disappeared from the county park since July 2012.

Meanwhile, deputy prosecutor Mark Watson filed a request for a DNA sample, which was set for hearing on March 27 before Lake Superior Court Judge Diane Ross Boswell.

On Nov. 14, the dead fowl was found in a trash can with damage to its anus. A search warrant served at Bessigano’s apartment in the 1600 block of Crestwood Drive resulted in the discovery of feathers from the dead bird and bloody blue jeans Bessigano was wearing.

Police found a significant amount of bestiality pornography, a large rubber wolf head mask and a “ritual room” with an altar, candles and long staffs, one of which contained a large feather on one end and a trident on the other end.

Bessigano has pleaded not guilty to the crimes, which are class D felonies and punishable by a sentence of six months to three years. He is being held without bond until March 26, when he can post $5,000 cash, or $50,000 surety.

Bessigano has served prison time for killing a chicken while having sex with it at the Valparaiso Motel in 2001. While on parole in August 2007 and living in a psychiatric facility in Gary, authorities confiscated thousands of pages of writings, journals, photos, magazines and drawings describing or depicting sexual contact between humans and animals.
