An Oakland park man took the phrase "doggie style" a little too seriously after being arrested late last week for sexually assaulting his roommate's dog.
Police took Tomas Bautista into custody Thursday on third-degree felony charges of animal cruelty, the Sun-Sentinel
reported. According to Broward County Sheriff Office police records, Bautista's roommate said he came home drunk that evening. Rather than go to bed, Bautista went outside -- and that's where his roommate caught the 40-year-old with his pants down after allegedly molesting Mimi, the roommate's Chihuahua-mix.
The roommate called 911 and brought the bleeding dog to an animal hospital, where it was confirmed she had been assaulted. Bautista later admitted to
penetrating the dog with his fingers, detectives said.
Sadly, Mimi isn't the only victim of bestiality in South Florida. To date, Pet-Abuse.com
, a New York-based group dedicated to increasing public awareness on animal cruelty, has recorded a total of 18 cases of sexually assaulted animals documented statewide -- three of which occurred last year.
Of those cases, the most recent was reported this past November when a Hollywood man
allegedly used his fingers to anally penetrate his dog.
