The owner had been walking around the ancient castle with a friend when the pair spotted the lone transvestite on the morning of Saturday July 10th at around a quarter to twelve.
He was wearing a black dress and walking around the steep-walled, empty moat.
As the two ladies spotted the cross dresser he ran away. Later one of the dogs chased after the man; by the time the women had caught up, the man was having sex with the pet.
Not a bad headline but generally poor reporting: they don't name the dog or even tell us the breed. But imagine! It might have been a Royal Palace and... gulp... a corgi
A spokesman for English Heritage said: "This was a very rare incident".
