MARION, Florida. The Florida man has been arrested several times for having sex with a miniature horse, MPs said.
According to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, Citra’s Nicholas Anthony Sardo, 21, has been arrested and charged with four counts of bestiality / animal sex.
Deputies say a witness stepped forward on October 16 and said she witnessed Sardo having sex with a miniature male pony named Jackie G. in the pasture of a family member’s home three days earlier.
Another witness came forward, saying that she saw it too, and, according to the sheriff, she approached Sardo and told about what she saw. Sardo immediately confessed to her that he had sex with a horse, and also gave the same confession to the detective investigating the charge.
Sardo added that the detective said he had sex with the horse four times during the week. The sheriff’s office said in a press release that “he used a condom every time because he didn’t want to get infected from the horse.”
In addition, Sardo told the detective that he knew he was wrong in what he did and that, according to the sheriff, “he was a sick man.”
A member of the Sardo family owns the horse, and the horse is currently under their care. The conditions for Sardo’s future contact with the horse may be determined by the judge in the near future.
Sardo is currently held at the Marion County Jail.
