Man arrested for having sex with horses for third time, breaking leg in process


A man from Texas has been arrested for trying to have sex with a horse in February, an act in which he broke his leg.


Cirilo Castillo Jr, 45, who has a history of this activity, was found injured in a barn in Edinburg, Texas in the morning on 17 February, according to a police statement.


An ambulance took Mr Castillo to the hospital for treatment after he was found at 7am by the owner of the barn, who was feeding her animals.


She had warned him to stay away from the barn after a prior arrest for having sex with her horses.

Mr Castillo claimed that he was struck by a car and crawled to the barn for shelter, however officers believe he was kicked by a horse. An ambulance took him to hospital for treatment.


Hidalgo County investigators issued a warrant for his arrest and he was taken into custody on June 2 for the charge of criminal trespass, for which Mr Castillo could face up to 180 days in jail.

Mr Castillo has served two sentences for past sexual incidents with horses.
