Charges Dropped In Animal Torture Fetish Porn Case

Charges in a Florida animal torture porn case have been dismissed. In April, Sara Zamora and Stephanie Hird were arrested and charged with animal cruelty. Although authorities positively identified both women, they cannot be prosecuted as the statute of limitations has passed.

According to reports, Zamora and Hird were both 18 years old when they appeared in the bizarre fetish films. Authorities said the videos were produced to appeal to fans of animal “crush” porn, which combines sex with the torture and death of animals.

Authorities were alerted to the abuse, as the films were featured on an animal torture porn website. In numerous clips, Zamora and Hird can be seen torturing and killing chickens, fish, rabbits, and rats — while engaging in sexual acts.

According to the warrant, Sara Zamora used the alias Gloria Shynez. Authorities said Zamora was filmed torturing rabbits and chickens while engaging in sexual acts with numerous men. She was also filmed having sex amid the carcasses of the animals she killed.

Authorities said Stephanie Hird appeared in the films as Megan Jones. In her videos, Hird is pictured torturing and killing rats, rabbits, and fish.

The films were produced by 57-year-old Adam Redford. Although the charges against Zamora and Hird were dismissed, Redford plead guilty to animal cruelty and was sentenced to probation.

As the animal torture films were produced 10 years ago, Zamora and Hird cannot be prosecuted.

Sara Zamora said she was coerced into appearing in the films:

“You… have a 40-year-old man telling an 18-year-old girl something and then… it’s over and your life is ruined… It’s not like these girls go there and say, ‘Yay! Let me kill an animal.’ It’s not like that at all… It’s something I can never take back. Unfortunately, these poor animals suffered, even though it’s just a chicken and rabbit.”

Stephanie Hird vehemently denies appearing in the animal torture porn films. She said “those were other models” and she “wasn’t guilty from the get-go.”

Representatives with People for Ethical Treatment of Animals were disappointed with the dismissal. As reported by Miami Herald, the organization believes the case was dismissed on “a technicality.”

Attorney Lody Jean, who represents both women, said formal charges were never filed. As reported by Local 10 News, Jean said she “never got a definitive answer from the state” about the complaint, as prosecutors realized the statute of limitations had passed.

Although authorities admit animal torture porn is against the law, the statute of limitations prevents prosecution.
