Police call it a cowardly act against Sedala the cow at Toronto's Riverdale Farm. A Toronto man is under arrest for allegedly having sex with the pregnant Jersey cow last week and refusing to stop.
Employees at the farm on Winchester St. had to repeatedly scream at a man to dismount the animal, Toronto Police Sgt. Rita Boehm said.
Police had to be called to take the man away.
Employees said the man refused to dismount Sedala, claiming he was assisting the animal in giving birth.
Sedala isn't due for two months and is now recovering from the ordeal.
After the man finally dismounted, he allegedly punched an employee on the shoulder before entering a horse's stall, where he again refused to leave, police said.
"It can be particularly dangerous in a horse stable," one employee said.
Police said the man was coaxed into leaving the horse stable and then allegedly hit a worker with a beer bottle.
David Kottaris, 28, of no fixed address, has been charged with assault with a weapon and cruelty to animals.
