OLDSMAR, Florida (WTSP). An Oldsmar man was arrested Monday after allegedly recording that he had sex with his Siberian husky, Pinellas County sheriffs deputies say.
Christian Steward Oscar Nichols, 21, has been charged with aggravated animal cruelty.
The investigation began last month when someone told Pinellas County Animal Services that he had seen videos and pictures of a man having sex with a dog online, detectives said.
The sheriff’s detectives received photos and videos of a man in a dog suit molesting a husky. According to the deputies, the dog got into trouble and tried to escape.
Investigators said they were able to trace the videos and photos to Nichols. They interviewed him on Monday and they say he confessed to filming a video of his dog named Amber and putting it online.
Amber and another dog were taken away from Nichols’ house.
Additional charges are likely, according to detectives, and an investigation is ongoing.
