A 57-year-old man has admitted trespassing into a barn and repeatedly having sex with a miniature horse called Mariah, police have said.
Santiago Victoria, 57, of Fellsmere, Florida was reportedly caught after the owner of the barn became suspicious upon finding bungee cords and ropes around the neck of the animal “even though she never placed any on it.”
Catherine Engel then reportedly set up CCTV in the stables and, to her shock, saw a man trespass and “get behind the horse in a sexual manner,” according to an arrest affidavit which laid bare the graphic details of the alleged crime.
On September 18 this year, Victoria was captured on camera standing with the horse, with his penis in his hand. He reportedly returned to the barn three times in the next two hours to engage in sexual acts with the horse.
The second time he allegedly entered the barn, 42 minutes after the first time, he was shirtless. He walked past three horses and again made his way to Mariah's stall, the affidavit said.
It added that he was then observed "standing behind Mariah for approximately 30 minutes while holding on to her hips with both hands."
Over an hour later, early in the morning of the 19th September, he is again seen entering the barn, the document says. He again ignores the other horses and heads towards Mariah, it adds.
He is seen standing behind the horse again and "rocking his body back and forth," before walking around the barn for a bit and then returning to Mariah, the affidavit says.

He then, reportedly, stands behind Mariah "completely shirtless and with his pants completely down to his knees" before he is allegedly observed "holding his penis and placing it inside the horse's private area."
Ten days later the police were called and on October 5th Engel identified Victoria as the suspect, telling police that he worked for a welding company that parks vehicles nearby, The Smoking Gun reported.
Police said that when they spoke to Victoria three days later, he admitted the allegations but couldn't remember how many times he had intercourse with the animal.
Victoria was arrested on three felony burglary charges. He was booked into the county jail, where he is being held on $75,000 bond.
Victoria, who has previously been convicted of DUI and violating probation, is scheduled for arraignment on November 29.
A judge has ordered him to stay away from Engel’s five-acre Vero Beach property.
