Oldsmar (WTFF) – A Florida man is in jail for raping his Siberian Husky and posting a video of the act online.
Pinellas County sheriff’s deputies arrested 21-year-old Christian Steward Oscar Nichols on Monday, according to WCTV.

The man was wearing a dog costume while committing the abuse, according to authorities.
Deputies say the dog was in distress and trying to run away.
Investigators traced the video back to Nichols.
During an interview, the Maryland-born Pinellas County resident admitted to making the video with his dog Ember and posting it online.
Ember and another dog were removed from the home.
Nichols is facing ten charges of Prohibited Act in Connection w/ Obscene Material, and one charge of Aggravated Animal Cruelty.
