A man has claimed that a horse gave him consent for sex by winking at him. Daniel Webb-Jackson, 31, broke into a stable in Grafton, New South Wales to have sex with the horse in January.
The man was found by police crouched in the corner of the fourth stable and was arrested after a brief fight with officers. In a police interview, he admitted committing two sexual acts against the horse but said the animal wanted to have sex with him.
Webb-Jackson pleaded not guilty to committing an act of cruelty but was convicted on Tuesday. He was jailed for 10 months and fined $700. The female horse was said to be “traumatized” after the assault.
