A man is facing charges of inserting a sex toy into a dog.
Rory Knox, 38, is accused of causing “unnecessary harm” to animals on April 18, 2021.
The alleged crime is said to have taken place in the Milton of Camps property in East Dunbartonshire.
Prosecutors claim the sex toy got inside the dog, injuring the animal.
Knox made no appeal during the hearing in Glasgow Sheriff’s Court.
However, a lawsuit was set for February 2022.
Further hearings will be held in January next year.
Knox of Helensburg, Argyle and Butte were released on bail.
