Farmhand arrested for ‘having sex with 21-month-old female miniature donkey named Doodle’

Comments Off on Farmhand arrested for ‘having sex with 21-month-old female miniature donkey named Doodle’

“This miscegenation has been raping horses since his teens…meaning he has got away with it for 13 years! He is nothing more than a freak, an abomination who seeks sexual gratification from non-human species! We are talking about helpless, voiceless victims, not made for sexual encounters with humans and for whom there is usually intense pain & trauma. Sadly on many occasions, the  internal damage caused is just too great & they don’t make it. This has got to stop, some way somehow, if through signing petition after petition…WE must get protection for all sentient, innocent beings, where ever they may live!”

A Florida farm worker was arrested and charged with engaging in sexual activity involving an animal and animal cruelty after police say he had sex with a miniature female donkey.

Carlos Romero, 31, was taken into custody on Monday at the Ocala farm where he was employed after reportedly admitting to police that he becomes aroused seeing animals in heat and mating.

When interviewed on Friday by police, Romero described in graphic detail his sexual encounter with the 21-month-old donkey named Doodle, saying that he likes how the critter’s fur feels against his privates, according to the police report cited by The Smoking Gun. Take a good look at the face of a freak!

The 31-year-old went on to say that he ‘may have come in contact with the donkey’ by accident and left his DNA ‘by accident.’ Romero also admitted that he masturbated with Doodle the donkey five or six times, but said he did not have sex with the critter because ‘she’s blooming into maturity,’ The Ocala Star-Banner reported.

The alleged incident that landed Romero behind bars took place on August 15, when Gerald James, who rents the farm in the 9100 block of NW 60th Avenue arrived at around 9:30pm to deliver a horse.

James told police that all the farm buildings were shrouded in darkness, but there was light in the tac room.

Through the window, James said he saw Romero with his shirt off and his pants down ‘up against the rear of the donkey’ and apparently having sex with it.

The 31-year-old farmhand pulled away from the 21-month-old animal after he saw James looking at him. He then pushed Doodle out the room and closed the door behind it.

James reported the incident to police on September 11, and three days later, officers came by the farm to question the suspect.

According to a police report, the 31-year-old told officers that Florida was ‘backwards’ because its residents ‘frown on zoophilia.’

Romero was sent to the Marion County Jail on $2,000 bond. His miniature donkey was taken away by animal control officials.

Since his arrest, Romero spoke out about the incident, demanding that Doodle – which he claims he paid $500 for – be returned to him. Jail officials said Romero was placed in protective custody ‘for his own protection.’

Marion County spokeswoman Elaine McClain said within 10 days, officials plan to file a petition with the court for custody of Doodle – something that Romero fiercely opposes.

If the court grants the custody request, the county may put the donkey up for adoption. Doodle appears to be in good health, McClain said, and there are ‘no outward signs of any physical abuse.’

At Romero’s first appearance via video from the jail, Judge Steven Rogers denied him a public defender. Romero entered a not guilty plea, and his next court appearance was scheduled for October 9.

In an earlier interview with the Star-Banner, Romero accused James of being a peeping tom and said he believes his privacy was invaded.

On his part, James said that if Romero is released from jail, he will not be welcomed back at the farm.

Romero said he has always been attracted to animals because their feelings ‘100 per cent honest.‘ He also admitted to having sex with horses multiple times since he was 18 years old, adding that he likes their ‘feminine shapebehaviour and raw power.

ASPCA Endorses New Legislation to Prohibit Cruel Practice of Horse Soring

Comments Off on ASPCA Endorses New Legislation to Prohibit Cruel Practice of Horse Soring

NEW YORK, SEPT. 13, 2012 — H.R. 6388 strengthens Horse Protection Act to better protect horses

The ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) today applauds Reps. Ed Whitfield (R-KY) and Steve Cohen (D-TN) for introducing legislation to amend the federal Horse Protection Act of 1970 to eradicate the abusive practice of horse soring. H.R. 6388 will enhance the U.S. Department of Agriculture‘s (USDA) ability to enforce the Horse Protection Act by eliminating self-policing inspection practices, increasing penalties, and designating additional soring practices illegal.

Currently illegal under the Horse Protection Act, soring involves using painful chemicals and devices to inflict pain in horses to compel an exaggerated show-ring gait so desirable in the multimillion-dollar Tennessee Walking Horse industry.

Soring is a particularly cruel form of abuse as the horses are forced to endure years of chronic pain throughout their show career,” said Nancy Perry, senior vice president of ASPCA Government Relations. “The Horse Protection Act was specifically enacted in 1970 to prohibit this abhorrent practice, and yet it continues to pervade the gaited horse industry four decades later. We thank Representatives Whitfield, Cohen, Schakowsky, and Moran for introducing legislation to protect these gentle animals and bring an end to horse soring.”

“Far too often, those involved in showing the Tennessee Walking Horse have turned a blind eye to abusive trainers, or when they do take action, the penalties are so minor, it does nothing to prevent these barbaric acts,” said. Rep. Whitfield.  “This amendment does not cost the federal government any additional money and is essential in helping to put an end to the practice of soring Tennessee Walking Horses by abusive trainers.

“In Tennessee, soring horses is illegal and unacceptable,” said Rep. Cohen. “Those responsible for abusing these horses should be punished severely and banned from the sport.  How we treat animals is a direct reflection of our character, both as individuals and a nation.   There is no ribbon, no prize nor championship worth the price of one’s humanity.”

The training method known as “soring” involves the deliberate application of pain-causing chemicals, cuts or foreign objects to a horse’s limbs or hoof pads to cause such agony to the animal’s front limbs that any contact with the ground forces the horse to fling its leg back up into the air.  Additionally, trainers may attempt to mask soring by “stewarding” Tennessee Walking Horses, which conditions the horses to remain still by beating, torturing or burning them.

In 2010, the USDA Office of Inspector General (OIG) conducted an audit of the horse protection program, finding that trainers in the industry often go to great lengths to evade detection rather than comply with federal law and train their horses using humane methods. The OIG made several recommendations, including stiffer penalties and abolishing the self-policing practices currently allowed, where the Horse Industry Organizations are able to assign their own inspectors to horse shows. 

H.R. 6388 will eliminate the current self-policing practices by requiring the USDA to assign a licensed inspector to a horse show. Second, it will prohibit the use of action devices on the various horse breeds that have frequently been the victims of soring.  Action devices, such as chains that rub up and down an already sore leg, intensify the horse’s pain when it moves, so that the horse quickly jolts up its leg.  Lastly, the amendment increases the penalties on an individual caught soring a horse.

“It doesn’t matter how many times I watch this video, it always makes me cry! To purposely inflict pain on an animal,  just to win a prize is sickening; its legal abuse, just like rodeos! Why hasn’t it been stopped before now, they know it’s still happening, the majority of punters know it happens…but it all boils down to money, & when animals are involved, it is they, who always pay the highest price! Corrupt judges, vets, trainers, handlers…from the top down, their all in on it…they are nothing but sad, evil greedy bxxxxxd’s!! (excuse my French).

“My horse went lame over the weekend…my daughter brought back video of her…I haven’t stopped crying since viewing it! Watching her try to walk on 3 legs, bless, she must have been in agony…it was bloody heartbreaking to see; I felt so useless not being able to get to her due to my usual pain! Anyhow, vet thinks she pulled her stifle muscle, so she is on box rest with medication for pain & swelling, which is gradually getting better daily…got vets bill yesterday… £328…I knew it would be high because it was an emergency call out, but it’s not about the money, as long as she will soon feel better & be back to her old cantankerous way’s…I don’t care how much it will cost! 

“That’s what you do when you love your animals, I would sell the clothes off my back if need be, to pay for further treatment for her! Yet some turds in this industry purposely torture their horses, so they step higher, out of pain… just for a bloody rosette or tin cup!! They shouldn’t be anywhere near horses, or other animals for that matter…because they clearly don’t give 2 tits about them or their welfare, their only in it for the money they will make, out of the animals they abuse! So don’t ever believe them when they say ‘Oh, I just love my horse, he’s the best’… because their bloody lying!”

South Brunswick Man Facing Animal Cruelty Charges for Wounded Horses

Comments Off on South Brunswick Man Facing Animal Cruelty Charges for Wounded Horses

Mare with broken leg was being held up by other horses before police removed it; colt with open, infested leg sore also removed from waterless ranch to receive veterinary care.

A South Brunswick man is facing charges in Plainfield Township after two horses he owns were seized due to neglect.

Dominic Deflorio, 63, who resides in the section of South Brunswick with a Princeton mailing address on Route 27, was charged with animal cruelty after failing to provide two horses with needed medical attention.

The two neglected horses were suffering from serious leg injuries and were “in dire need of veterinary care” that the owner was unwilling to provide, according to authorities. The horses were seized from a private property by Plainfield police Monday night, according to court records.

One brown colt had a leg wound that maggots were eating through and exposing bone. The other horse, a brown mare, had suffered a broken leg.

But like something out of a Disney movie, other horses in a 15-animal herd that occupy the property were helping the wounded mare to stay upright, according to an application for a search warrant on file at District Judge Joseph Barner’s office.

The officer who filed the warrant, Scott E. Zabriskie, wrote that he “believes the seizure of the … two horses is necessary for their survival, as they require immediate veterinary care, of which the owner … is unwilling to provide.”

Deflorio, who could not be reached for two days following an initial complaint, told police on Monday that he would take the horses back to his property in New Jersey. However, police took the horses from the property at 5326 Kesslersville Road at a little before 9 p.m.

From the description in the search warrant, there was no source of clean water on the site – only “a green, algae-ridden pond” and “one water trough, partially filled with dirty water.”

The trough is located “at the bottom of a large ravine,” the warrant says. “Due to the location of the trough, one of the horses observed on the property could not access the water trough.”

The responders also could provide no water to the animals from the property itself. Water service to the property had been shut off, Zabriskie wrote.

There was no word in the warrant about the condition of, or provisions for, the other 13 horses on site.

Police were called to the scene on Saturday for a report that four horses were loose in the area of Youngs Hill and Kesslersville roads. Neighbors had captured the horses, which had apparently escaped through a hole in the fence at the property before police arrived.

PETA calls for ban on horse-drawn carriages in Mumbai

Comments Off on PETA calls for ban on horse-drawn carriages in Mumbai

Mumbai: Animal rights group PETA Wednesday strongly pitched for banning horse drawn carriages in Mumbai, citing cruelty to the animal, and suggested it be replaced with battery-operated vehicles.

Forcing horses to pull carriages through congested traffic on stifling hot streets is not only cruel but also dangerous for the horses, carriage occupants and passers-by, said Manilal Valliyate, veterinary affairs director of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India.

PETA officials, in a meeting with Sitaram Kunte, Bruhanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) commissioner, introduced an illustration of a battery-operated ‘peacock’ chariot and said that it might be the solution to replace cruel and dangerous horse-drawn carriages.

PETA wants horse-drawn carriages banned in Mumbai.

PETA claimed that the vehicle it suggested would be eco-friendly and owned  and driven by the existing horse-carriage owners and drivers.

The proposal comes in the wake of Bombay High Court interim order to BMC to confiscate horses kept illegally. Kunte has agreed to look into the proposal made by the animal rights group.Horses in Mumbai are forced to live in filthy, damp stables amid their own faeces and urine and are often left to stand without any shade, which is a clear violation of law, Valliyate said.

Many of the drivers don’t have a valid licence to ply horse-carriages, he added.

A growing number of cities worldwide, including Delhi, Toronto, London, Oxford, Paris and Beijing, have banned horse-drawn carriages and adopted humane alternatives.

The European Commission now agrees that EU legislation on long-distance transport of animalsto slaughter needs to be reviewed.

Late last week,  the EU Commissioner for Health and Consumer Policy, John Dalli, agreed with welfare groups that the present Transport Regulation cannot adequately protect animals on long journeys and must be reviewed.

The charity World Horse Welfare said the statement constituted an important change in the position of the Commission, which until now had maintained that enforcement of the present rules would address serious welfare problems still experienced by tens of millions of animals, including 65,000 horses, transported on European roads for slaughter or further fattening every year.

Dalli made the statement after meetings with members of the European Parliament and animal welfare groups in Brussels at the handover of a petition signed by more than one million EU citizens calling for a maximum journey limit of 8 hours for these animals.

He agreed with the participants that existing transport regulations were not sufficient to guarantee an acceptable level of welfare for animals during transport, and announced that the commission will propose a review of EU legislation that will include – among other things – a reduction of transport times

Dustin Hoffman’s Axed Show Luck Hit With New Animal Cruelty Complaints

Comments Off on Dustin Hoffman’s Axed Show Luck Hit With New Animal Cruelty Complaints

Producers behind Dustin Hoffman‘s axed horse-racing drama Luck have been hit with fresh animal cruelty complaints from activists at the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta).

Dustine Hoffman

David Milch and Michael Mann ceased production on the Hbo show in March (12) after a horse was humanely put down following an accident at the studio’s stables. It was the third equine death since filming began at California’s Santa Anita racetrack.

Peta bosses celebrated the series cancellation after weeks of campaigning, but their joy at the show’s end has been tinged with sadness after uncovering further claims of animal cruelty related to the programme.

Animal rights chiefs filed legal papers with the Los Angeles District Attorney‘s Office and the California Veterinary Medical Board on Thursday (03May12), alleging, among other charges, that horses were underfed to save money and some were tranquillised to keep them docile for filming.

Senior Vice President of Peta, Lisa Lange, tells The Hollywood Reporter, “These documents appear to reveal what Luck executive producers David Milch and Michael Mann have repeatedly denied: that horses were mistreated and endangered on a daily basis. Hbo says… it lost $35 million (£22 million) with the cancellation of Luck, but the horses paid a much bigger price. The authorities can take action now to send a message that cruelty to animals for the sake of ‘entertainment’ – or for any reason – will not be tolerated.”

Network executives have previously denied several animal cruelty allegations, insisting they worked closely with racing industry experts and members of the American Humane Association to implement safety protocols that went “above and beyond” typical filming standards.

League Against Cruel Sports

Comments Off on League Against Cruel Sports

“Let me just put one thing straight…I have never ever attended a hunt, despite being in the equine business for 40+ years. I never have & never will be associated with this barbaric sport…But I know those that do…so can’t say any-more because of possible retribution; just know I don’t take part!!!”

It’s the end of yet another hunting season and despite the Hunting Act 2004 making it illegal to hunt wild mammals with dogs in England and Wales, we are still getting hundreds of calls from members of the public who are witnessing suspicious activity and havoc caused by the hunts. In our video blog below we take a look at some of the reports of havoc we’ve received and ask the question, are the hunters really abiding by the law?

We take a look back over this year’s hunting season; including our report into artificial earths, some of the havoc caused by hunts and Joe talks about our new investigators.

We began this hunting season with the publication of our report into artificial earths. Earths were historically built by hunts to provide a breeding place and home for foxes, so that the hunts could ensure they had a ready supply of foxes to hunt. Our five month investigation revealed evidence that some artificial earths had been recently renovated and food and water supplies were also found. We believe that this points to a nationwide conspiracy to encourage and sustain fox populations for the purposes of hunting. Read the full report…

As the hunting season got underway the crimewatch calls began flooding in. Of the hundreds of calls received, nearly 20% were describing some kind of havoc caused by the ‘trail hunting’ which was taking place. From hounds running riot through people’s gardens, livestock and pets being attacked to hounds being killed and our monitors being attacked.

The League receives the same reports every season and we think it’s high time that hunts are held accountable for these blatant infringements of the law. In December last year the Master of the North Shropshire Hunt said; “We were out trail hunting…when we lost the hounds. It was a freak accident and won’t happen again.”  Surely if this was such a freak incident then we wouldn’t be seeing ‘accidents’ year after year. Watch the video blog to find out more…

It’s not just foxes, deer and hares which need your protection. The fox hunting season may be over but we’re now nearly a month into the mink hunting season and we need your help to catch any illegal activity. If you have information on an upcoming hunt or if you see any suspicious activity please contact our crimewatch team on 01483 524250 or complete ouronline form.
