A Florida man was arrested after his wife caught him on a home security camera having sex with their pet Chihuahua.
Manuel Ramon Gonzalez, 61, was caught in November having sex with his dog in his backyard. According to a dog expert, the Chihuahua was “in an uncomfortably submissive posture, with its head and ears down.” Gonzalez was reportedly touching himself while abusing the animal. After his wife saw the disturbing act, she ran outside and confronted him.
The dog allegedly attempted to escape multiple times and “did not like what was happening.” The Chihuahua suffered physical injuries from the incident.
According to CBS 12, police in Palm Beach County, Florida, respond to 30,000 calls of possible animal abuse cases per year. “We do see a lot of it. A lot of times we wish there was more we could do,” Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control Captain Dave Walesky said. “We wish there was stronger laws. We wish people would immediately go to jail and stay there.” Florida is also the number one state in the U.S. for severe animal crimes.
Gonzalez was arrested following the incident, and pleaded guilty to animal cruelty and sexual activity with an animal. He was sentenced to 100 days in jail and 12 months probation.
