A Russian woman has dumped her sick boyfriend are he was spotted on CCTV having sex with a horse, the Sun reports.
The man was caught by CCTV camera having sex with the horse and then burning down its stables in an attempt to hide his act of bestiality.
Camera footage showed the man apparently mounting the unsuspecting animal, which was trapped between two fences in a field beside the stables.
It is alleged that the man had committed the act of bestiality before realizing that the entire thing was being filmed on a CCTV camera.
The stable worker is accused of attempting to destroy all evidence by setting fire to the stables in the village of Urshakbashkaramily in south-central Russia's Republic of Bashkorkostan region.
His plan, apparently, backfired after police were called in to investigate the suspected arson. The authorities immediately checked the CCTV cameras and found footage of him apparently mounting and raping the horse.
The man could be seen approaching one of the animals from behind and pulling down his trousers.
The man then appears to begin having sex with the horse, holding the fence to keep his balance.
He was detained on suspicion of arson but could also face a charge of abusing the horse.
Pending the court case he was released - to face his girlfriend.
She was unnamed but reported to be "inconsolable, furious and humiliated".
Social media users were shocked by the footage.
One called "Vorchu" said: "It is a shame that the horse did not hit kick him between his legs after what he had done to it."
Another said: "He should be castrated.
"This is rape of the horse. He must be punished."
Another said: "This girlfriend must be deep in thoughts now."
