There’s messed up in the head, and then there’s this guy. Likely a huge fan of the comedy show Mr Ed, an Alabama man just loves horses. Like really, really LOVES horses.
Court documents show an Irvington, Alabama man is awaiting trial following a court hearing for a case in which he is accused with molesting a horse, reports AL.COM
18-year-old Daniel Bennett was caught in the horse’s stable Thursday night, investigators with the Mobile County, Alabama Sheriff’s Office say, and confessed to attempting to molest the horse.
The owner of the 20-year-old steed told WPMI-TV she found Bennett in the barn Thursday night after her dogs’ barking led her to the scene.
Owner Francine Janes and her husband, who was armed with a gun, reportedly found Bennett hiding in a barn stall.
Upon being found, Janes said he told her that “He likes horses. He wanted to pet the horse.”
Bennett was reportedly held at gunpoint by Janes’ husband until police arrived. Police reportedly discovered that Bennett had a trench coat with a burglar’s tool in it.
Janes doesn’t believe this is the first time Bennett has inappropriately interacted with her horse. She told investigators she found what she believes to be evidence in Polly’s stall multiple times throughout the month of December.
“I would say seven maybe 10 times,” Janes told WPMI. “Toilet paper had been left. The hay stacks had been removed. Items had been turned over. And that’s as far as I want to go.”
Bennett has been charged with possession of burglar’s tools, sexual misconduct and second-degree criminal trespassing.
The official warrant for Bennett’s arrest lists the crime of bestiality as a misdemeanor, alleging that Bennett “engaged in or submitted to any sexual contact with an animal, to-wit: a horse.”
