A Miami woman was taken into custody after she was caught repeatedly decapitating live chickens and killing rabbits — all while engaging in sex acts during the filming of an animal torture video.
Sara Zamora, 28, was arrested Friday on eight felony counts of animal cruelty for her feature role in a video called “SOS Barn” that a Miami-Dade police arrest report described in gory detail.
“The chicken is enduring extreme pain and suffering during this process,” according to the arrest report.
The video clips depicted her and other porn actresses “torturing and killing a wide variety of animals, including chickens, rabbits and more for the sexual gratification of its viewers,” police told the press.
The barnyard snuff video was filmed at the South Miami-Dade home of Adam Redford, according to the police report, who is listed as a co-defendant. He is already on probation for a similar animal cruelty case in Lee County last year but had not been charged in the Miami-Dade case as of Friday night.
Detectives from Miami-Dade’s agricultural unit learned of the video clips from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, a prominent animal rights group.
Stephanie Bell, director of cruelty cases for PETA, called the arrest “excellent news. We have been waiting for this.”
Bell said the group also had tipped off authorities in Redford’s case in Lee County, where she said he had moved. Bell said such videos, graphically depicting animal torture and death, are illegal under state and federal laws.
“These videos are unfortunately in demand and it’s hard to fathom that anyone would produce or enjoy them,” she said.
In one clip of “SOS Barn,” Miami-Dade police say, Zamora gropes a man’s genitals with her left hand while “repeatedly cutting a chicken’s neck using hedge clippers with her right.” In others, she posed “in a sexy outfit” after hacking off the head of another screaming bird, or she beat chickens to death with a wooden stick.
