The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA, is bringing attention to a case of alleged bestiality in Alabama. Henry Lewis of Sweetwater is accused of having sex with a pony.

According to PETA, at least two people witnessed the act about a month ago. A few days later, the pony was reported dead.

"Research shows that offenders who commit bestiality often go on to commit sex crimes against humans," said PETA's Stephanie Bell. "Our belief is that the community should be following this case closely because anyone capable of this kind of cruelty poses a definitive risk to the entire community."

PETA is urging the district attorney to prosecute Lewis vigorously and require mandatory counseling. An initial hearing in the case was scheduled for Wednesday.
