OCALA, Fla., Nov. 5 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said a man accused of engaging in a sex act with his miniature donkey is asking for his animal back.

Carlos Romero, 31, who is charged with animal cruelty and is currently in protective custody, said Tuesday in his first court appearance he wants the 21-month-old donkey he is accused of having sex with Aug. 15, the Ocala (Fla.) Banner-Star reported Monday.

Romero, who was arrested Monday and pleaded not guilty at his court appearance, is in protective custody with bail set at $20,000. Romero told the judge he believes he is in protective custody to keep him away from the donkey, named Doodle.

"I want my donkey back. There's got to be due process here. I paid $500 for her," Romero said.

County officials said they plan to petition the court for custody of the donkey. The animal may then end up for adoption, officials said.
