Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. This guy Carlos is just gross. Being an animal lover is one thing and being an animal LOVER is a completely different story!
A frisky farm hand cuffed after allegedly telling police he pleasured himself with a donkey told a Florida court Tuesday that he wants his burro back.
“There’s got to be due process here. I paid $500 for her,” said 31-year-old Carlos Romero, according to the Ocala Star-Banner.
But Marion County officials want custody of the miniature donkey named Doodle, and plan to put her up for adoption, the newspaper said. The animal appeared in good condition after the alleged abuse.
Romero pleaded not guilty to charges of sexual activity involving an animal and animal cruelty. His bail was set at $2,000 and was placed into Marion County Jail.
He was arrested Monday at an Ocala farm after farm proprietor Gerald James told police about the Aug. 15 incident.
According to a police report obtained by thesmokinggun.com, James said he was delivering a horse when he allegedly saw Romero shirtless and with his pants pulled down, appearing to have sex with a donkey in an equipment room.
When police interviewed Romero, he allegedly told them he had used his fingers to clean the animal’s genitals and generally becomes aroused seeing animals in heat. The sexual contact, he allegedly told police, was an accident.
But police said he also admitted to pleasuring himself with the animal five or six times and called Florida “backwards” because people frown on zoophilia.
In an interview with the Star-Banner from jail, Romero said he has “never been a people person” and has always had an attraction for horses.
“I’ve had a sexual excitement with animals more than humans. … I would’ve eventually had sex with [Doodle],” but told the newspaper that he didn’t because “she’s blooming into maturity.”
In a twist, Romero said it was James who should have been arrested for invasion of privacy and being a “Peeping Tom.”
James, however, told the Star-Banner that he doesn’t want the randy Romero, who’s vowing to get out of jail and go back for Doodle, anywhere near the farm.
“No one feels comfortable around him,” he said.
Those miniature donkeys are awful cute but still… EWWWWWW! This guy shouldn’t be allowed near animals at all.
