Florida Man Arrested for Bestiality Speaks: "I Want My Donkey Back"

Apparently, when you're arrested for jacking off with a donkey, you want to do your best to make sure the case gets as much publicity as possible. So Carlos Romero decided to give a jailhouse interview and has apparently left several comments across the web defending his love for his donkey.

Romero wants his donkey back and claims that sex and emotional intimacy with animals is preferable because humans are just horrible.

As we noted yesterday, Romero was arrested up in Marion County over the weekend after he was found fingering his pet donkey and rubbing his nether regions up against it while pleasuring himself. At the time of his arrest Romero said that Florida was "backwards" for looking down on zoophilia.

Well, Romero isn't done talking.


He said he has always felt an attraction toward animals, especially horses, because people have been known to "stab you in the back, give you diseases, lie to you" and are "promiscuous."

Animals, he said, "are usually there for you" and "do not seek other pleasures." Their feelings are "100 percent honest," he added.

Uh, yes, sometimes humans are horrible to each other. Welcome to Life 101.

But, you know, anytime I'm going through a breakup or something I don't think to myself, "You know what, maybe I should just fuck a horse." Nope. Doesn't cross my mind. Usually I think, "You know what, maybe I should drink half this bottle of vodka." God gave us alcohol to deal with people lying to you. Not animal sex.

Romero, 31, admitted that he's been having sex with horses since he was 18, but said he hasn't fully consummated his relationship with the donkey yet "because she's blooming into maturity."

Romero is also pissed because his donkey has since been taken away from him.

"I want my donkey back. There's got to be due process here. I paid $500 for her," he told a judge on Tuesday morning.

Marion County officials are petitioning the court for custody of the animal, and plan to put it up for adoption.

Romero (or at least someone using his name) has also been making several comments on a Huffington Post story about his arrest.

"Have you ever seen a jack donkey? even the miniatures would put the most well hung pornstar to shame," he wrote in one comment.

"The issue at hand will not be having sex with animals, it will be bedroom privacy. If I get convicted then all Floridians expectation of privacy will be effectively nullified," he wrote in another.
