Responding officers were greeted with a crowd of rather disturbed residents outside of Marsonek’s home… residents that reportedly witnessed the coupling. Several witnesses stated they pleaded with Marsonek to stop, but he ignored them.
Officers found Marsonek, a convicted felon, inside his home and interviewed him before obtaining a search warrant for the property.
Inside the home, police found a gun, ammunition, and Marsonek’s harem — eight large pit bulls. No word on whether all of ’em had been violated, or if Marsonek had a favorite.
He was arrested on two counts of a felon in possession of a firearm, animal cruelty and sexual activity involving animals. Animal Services investigators took custody of the dogs. He has since been released on a $17,500 bond.Tags: Animal Cruelty, Bernard Marsonek, bestiality, felon in possession of a firearm, Florida, pit bull, Tampa
