An official in Saudi Arabia, has denied reports that circulated this week, that police have executed a gay race horse that was caught mating with two males.
Earlier this week, unofficial reports began circulating on the Internet, claiming that the Committee for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, have ordered the execution of a 4-year-old race horse worth about $12 million after allegedly being caught in a sexual relationship with other male horses.
According to the unconfirmed reports, when the four-year-old horse was allegedly captured on two separate occasions having sex with males, the matter was reported to the police.
Police rushed to the scene and seized the horse.
The horse was then brought before the Committee for the Propagation of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, and a death warrant was signed.
After learning about the death warrant, dozens of U.S. horse owners have offered to buy the horse in order to prevent its death.
However, officials have denied that the horse was scheduled to be executed.
