American Man Allegedly Sexually Assaults Pregnant Horse in Phuket

Thalang –

An 18-year-old American man allegedly sexually assaulted a pregnant horse in Thalang.

The Thalang Police Department told the Phuket Express that they were notified of the incident from a stable keeper identified only as Mr. Chatcharot, 50, from Paklok on Sunday (March 10th) of the incident. He told the police that at 4:00 P.M. that day he gave a routine health check of a 10-year-old female pregnant horse inside the stable in Soi Bang Sai, Paklok.

The condition of the horse alarmed the stable keeper who immediately recognised that the horse had suffered apparent sexual abuse based on her condition and stress levels. He checked CCTV footage in the stable and discovered to his shock a foreign man found in the stables. The man is seen on CCTV appearing to sexually abuse the horse with his hand. The footage of the incident was posted online to various animal watchdog groups where it immediately went viral. The Phuket Express has decided not to share this footage however as it depicts animal sexual abuse and may upset many readers.

The suspect was later identified by police only as Mr. Stephen, 18, an American national. He has been contacted to surrender himself and speak with Phuket police over the shocking incident. It was not immediately apparent if Stephen was an ex-pat or a tourist.

Further details on this developing story may be released as they are revealed by police.
