A drunken man has been arrested by Spanish police after he was caught by police having sex with a pony after a night out on the town.

The bizarre incident occurred in the municipality of Murcia located in the Spanish autonomous community of Region of Murcia in the early hours of Sunday 27th September.

Local police were contacted by a couple who claimed to see an unidentified man “penetrate the pony, with his trousers and underwear down, while he held on to the animal’s rear” according to local broadcaster Antena 3.

The couple also alerted the pony’s owner and reprimanded the man for raping the animal which caused the suspect to run off.

However, apparently unhappy that he had been disturbed, he later sneaked back and attempted once again to have sex with the animal “in the same position” as before, after mistakenly believing that the coast was clear.

But it meant that he was then caught in the act by cops who turned up to investigate the original complaint.

They detained the man who was found in a drunken state and with a wound on his head which required stitches. It is unclear how the man was injured.

The suspect was taken to a National Police station, although the pony’s owner has decided not to press any charges after a local veterinary found the animal did not suffer any injuries.

There have been no further reports and it is unclear whether authorities will prosecute the man anyway.
