COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — A Council Bluffs man has been charged with bestiality and animal cruelty after police say he performed a sex act on a cat and then threw the cat out of seventh floor window, killing it.
29-year-old Gerardo Martinez was arrested Wednesday after witnesses reporting seeing him naked in an apartment window throwing the cat to the ground below.
Police say Martinez told officers he had recently used methamphetamine and admitted to performing a sex act on the cat.
He also was charged with indecent exposure.
Martinez is being held in the Pottawattamie County jail under $10,000 bond.
