Eric Antunes Accused Of Having Sex With Girlfriend's Dog

Posted: Updated:

When cops came to a man's house on a tip that he had child pornography, according to authorities, they found something they weren't expecting.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that Eric Antunes of Clearwater, Fla. was arrested on ten counts of possession of child pornography and an animal cruelty charge after cops said they found pictures of the man having sex with his girlfriend's dog.

The photos of the alleged bestiality were found on Antunes' phone, according to police.

Clearwater Patch reports that police allegedly found nine images of child pornography and one video. Police say Antunes admitted to downloading and viewing child porn.

The Miami New Times notes that Florida passed a bestiality ban in October, 2011. "If he's charged, Antunes could be one of the first few people prosecuted under the new law," writes the New Times.

The story is at least the second bestiality story to make headlines in as many days.

On Wednesday, the Patriot News reported that Pennsylvania State Police arrested a man after he allegedly broke into a barn and performed oral sex on a horse.
