A man in Hidalgo County, Texas has been arrested for allegedly having sex with a horse.
This would be the second time 43-year-old Cirilo Castillo has had intercourse with the same horse. He was arrested in January 2012 and got out of jail in April 2012 but then was caught again after the neighbor had a security camera set up that police say caught the whole thing on tape.
Last week, he was charged with trespassing and cruelty to animals after police reports reveal he broke into his neighbor’s corral and violated a mare named Nadia.
“It is not going to go to, ‘America’s Funniest Videos,’ that is for sure,” Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino told the Chronicle.
The Huffington Post reports:
Cops noted that Castillo wouldn’t be a big concern if he could just rein in the bestiality.
“The guy is practically harmless, except for the horse,” Trevino added.
The sheriff told KGBT-TV that, nonetheless, Castillo would “continue to do this” if no one stopped him.
“The people there in the neighborhood are just sick and tired of it,” he said.
No word on how much bail Castillo will have to pony up to get out of jail.
He’s not the first guy who allegedly can’t quit horsing around.
In 2011, South Carolina man Rodell Vereen pleaded guilty to having sex with his neighbor’s horse — the same horse he also violated in 2007.
That same year, Kentucky man Nathan Johnson was charged with animal cruelty after a witness allegedly caught him in a compromising position with an equine. Johnson had faced the same charges in 2002, but with a different horse.
