Monday, a 21-year-old man was arrested after police say he recorded himself having sex with his dog.
Christian Steward Oscar Nichols was charged with aggravated animal cruelty after Pinellas County police obtained videos of the man having sex with a Siberian Husky.
According to reports, an investigation into Nichols began last month when he was reported to the county’s animal services organization.
An anonymous source claimed video and photos of Nichols having sex with the dog were on the internet.
Police say the video obtained by officials showed Nichols assaulting the animal while he was dressed in a dog costume.
Additionally, the dog is seen in the video trying to run away.
Nichols reportedly admitted to committing the crime as well as recording it.
The dog, Ember, and another found on the property were removed from Nichols’ property.
