HIDALGO COUNTY, Texas (CBS Houston) — A man has been arrested for a second time for having sex with the same horse.
According to reports, Cirilo Castillo, 43, who was released from jail in April after originally having sex with the horse in January 2012, went back to a Hidalgo County ranch to commit the act again. Castillo was arrested Wednesday.
“The guy is practically harmless, except for the horse,” Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino told the Chronicle. “I just can’t ignore this and allow it to keep happening.”
The horse’s owner reportedly set up a security camera after Castillo kept going after the horse. Additional media outlets added that Castillo would tie up the horse and have sex with it.
“We have a hell of a surveillance tape,” Trevino told the Chronicle. “It is not going to go to, ‘America’s Funniest Videos,’ that is for sure.”
Trevino says the man needs “mental help.”
“He is going to continue to do this,” Trevino told KGBT. “The people there in the neighborhood are just sick and tired of it. We just need to do something with this.”
Castillo has been charged with cruelty to animals and criminal trespass. He is being held on $35,000 bond.
