    The incident occurred on Friday of last week around 3pm, the Berliner Morgenpost reported. The employee described the incident to the paper. “My babysitter took a walk with our son through Görlitzer Park. They had to witness the man sexually assaulting the pony.”

    Her babysitter told her about the incident, and also spoke to the caretakers. She did not want to comment on the incident as the scene was too traumatic.

    The employee of the children’s farm told the Berliner Morgenpost that the babysitter had taken a photo of the man as he was committing the deed, and immediately contacted employees of the children’s farm. They contacted the security staff of Görlitzer Park. The employee also called the police. The migrant quickly backed off of the animal, and disappeared into the park.

    But security staff searched and found the migrant based on the photo taken by the babysitter, and held him until the police arrived. Police then recorded the migrant’s personal information. “We banned him from the premises,” says the employee.

    “Should he return, we will report this. We have never had an incident like that before.” They have filed charges with the police. The police confirmed the charges for violating the animal welfare law, and “causing a public nuisance through sexual acts” against a 23-year-old native of Syria.

    The children’s zoo is particularly popular with young children. They have two ponies, two donkeys, half a dozen sheep and goats, as well as chickens, ducks and rabbits. “All year round we have such positive things happening here,” says the employee. “It is a pity that now we are being associated with such an incident.”

    The punishment for “causing a public nuisance” in Germany is, according to paragraph 183a of the criminal code, imprisonment for up to a year, or a fine. Violating the animal protection law is punishable by a prison sentence of up to three years, or a fine, if the animal had suffered significant pain.
