Carlos Romero is nothing, if not bold. The 31-year-old Florida man was picked up by cops after somebody saw him in a sexual position with his pet miniature donkey. But instead of laying low and hoping his perverted act didn't end up on the crime blotter, Romero is embracing his sexuality.

In an interview with, Romero blasted Florida as "a backwards state" where "people look down on zophilia" -- comments that suggest he hasn't spent a whole lot of time in any other states. He also explained that he wasn't actually having sex with his donkey -- who he has named Doodle -- but that he was masturbating up against her while she was in heat.

That's not to say he is against diddling Doodle. It's just she is only 21-months and not yet ready for full-on sexual activity. Romero, who says he's been having sex with horses since he was 18, has every intention of further violating Doodle when she gets a little older.

The only problem is that animal control has taken her away from him.

"I want my donkey back," he said Tuesday in court to the judge presiding over his case. "There's got to be due process here. I paid $500 for her.” Wow, that's better than we got

Romero pleaded not guilty to one charge of misdemeanor sexual activity with an animal. His bail has been set at $2000 but he remains in jail. And that's another problem with taking a donkey for your girlfriend. She's just not going to have the cash to bail you out.
