A MAN has been arrested for filming himself raping his pet dog while dressed up in a husky costume, and posting the vile footage online.
Christian Nichols, 21, was picked up and arrested by Florida officials after he captured the horrific act, according to court records.
The 21-year-old is being held at the Pinellas County jail on one felony count of aggravated animal cruelty, which involved a Siberian Husky named Ember.
Detectives say the video showed the dog attempting to escape from the horrific act, but the man responded by hitting the dog with a sex toy, reported Miami Herald.
The police reports says: “Detectives say the dog in the video was clearly in distress. At one point during the video, the dog tries to run away and the man responds by striking the dog with a sex toy.
“Through various investigative techniques, detectives tracked the video and photographs back to 21-year-old Christian Stewart Oscar Nichols of Oldsmar.”
The investigation began on January 25, and the man was arrested on February 11.
