Gerardo Martinez, a 29-year-old Iowa man was jailed after he allegedly had sex with a cat and then threw the animal to its death from a seventh-story apartment window.
According to police, officers were called after witnesses at the man’s apartment complex reported watching a man expose himself before throwing a cat out of his seventh-story apartment window.
When officers arrived, they found a gray cat near a sidewalk that was bleeding and barely able to breath. The cat later died.
When officers went to the apartment of the reported incident, they were greeted at the door by a shirtless Martinez whose pants were down around his ankles.
Martinez, who admitted that he had been using meth, first denied having a cat. He then told deputies that his boyfriend threw the cat from their window three hours prior to the incident.
After police confronted Martinez with eye witness accounts of his behavior, he reportedly admitted to having sex with the cat before tossing it out a window.
Martinez was booked into jail on charges of animal torture, bestiality and indecent exposure.
