BITHLO - An Orange County man was jailed after being accused of having sex with his dog.
Laszlo Arsenio Horvath, 21, is charged with animal abuse for having sex with a whippet mix named Silvy. Orange County deputies said the dog's injuries were so severe she had to be put down.
Deputies began investigating Horvath last month after receiving a tip on Crimeline about the alleged animal abuse.
When deputies contacted Horvath at his home near Bithlo, they found the dog's legs were duct-taped closed with a cloth pressed against her lower half, according to an arrest affidavit.
After Horvath refused to pay for medical attention to treat the dog, investigators convinced Horvath to turn the dog over to animal services. A veterinarian decided it would be best to euthanize the 8-year-old animal.
A necropsy was conducted on the animal and veterinarians discovered human, male DNA inside the dog's body.
Deputies conducted an interview with Horvath on Thursday during which officers say he confessed to sodomizing the dog several times. He told investigators he did it because "he was lonely," the report said.
Horvath was arrested and taken to the Orange County Jail about 4 p.m. Thursday.
