      Man pleads guilty to having sex with horse again

      For the second time, a Hidalgo County man is caught on camera sexually abusing a horse. Cirilo Castillo was arrested in January 2012 after he was caught having sexual encounters with a horse named India.

      Investigators told Action 4 News that he would trespass on two different ranches, tie up the horse and have sex with it.

      After serving time, he was released.

      Castillo was caught on camera again, performing sexual acts with the same horse.

      On Wednesday, Castillo was charged with cruelty to animals and criminal trespass.

      He pleaded guilty to the charge.

      Sheriff Lupe Trevino said his department will work to get Castillo the mental help he needs.

      The sheriff said the man TMs behavior is upsetting neighbors. "He is going to continue to do this, the sheriff said. The people there in the neighborhood are just sick and tired of it, we just need to do something with this."

      Authorities said the horse showed displeasure to the acts by trying to move away from Castillo on several occasions.

      The 43-year-old's bond was set at $35,000.
