Mexican national arrested on bestiality charge

A Starr County sheriff’s deputy arrested a 28-year-old Mexican national Friday on a bestiality charge after the man was allegedly spotted trying to have sex with a cow.

U.S. Border Patrol agents called the sheriff’s office shortly before 8 p.m. Friday to report that they had witnessed a man who allegedly appeared to be “having sex with a cow,” according to a sheriff’s office news release. The incident occurred at an unspecified location near the Hidalgo and Starr county line.

The man, identified as Jose Nino, was arraigned by Precinct 2 Justice of the Peace Ramiro Guillen and given a $1,500 personal recognizance bond. Nino was subsequently released to the custody of U.S. Border Patrol.
