An elderly man admitted that he has sex with horses on his farm, prosecutors in Australia said.
67-year-old Noel Mitchell was sentenced to 18 months of probation at the County Court.
He was also ordered to perform 100 hours of community service after pleading guilty to two counts of bestiality. Several years ago, he was convicted of bestiality at the Melbourne Magistrate’s Court.
The County Court heard that Mitchell was discovered having sex with a horse in a field. Police arrested him, but he denied the allegations.
A concerned neighbor decided to put a stop to the animal abuse, and began recording Mitchell. The neighbor managed to record Mitchell having sex with a horse on his farm.
Mitchell apologized to the community and his wife, and told the court that he was deeply embarrassed and ashamed of his behavior.
