PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (KTVI) — A Florida man was arrested after his wife caught him having sex with their pet Chihuahua. Authorities say this is part of a bigger problem that doesn’t seem to be going away in South Florida.

WPEC reports that Manuel Ramon Gonzalez, 61, of Wellington pleaded guilty to animal cruelty and sexual activity with an animal. Gonzalez was caught in the act on their home security surveillance cameras.

Officials say the Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control responds to nearly 30,000 calls per year and roughly half of them are possible abuse cases.

Website Pet-Abuse.com says Florida is the number one state in the country for the most severe animal crimes.
