A Californian couple have been arrested for keeping a miniature horse in their kitchen and dining room.
They were charged with child endangerment because the woman's 10 year old son had been sleeping in a tent inside his bedroom to protect himself from flies attracted by the horse’s waste.
Police animal control supervisor John Bear said: "The conditions were horrendous.
"This miniature horse had been housed indoors for I'm guessing a good length of time by the amount of animal waste that was built up inside the house."
Joe Curtis Silva, 30, and the boy's mother, 37-year-old Nichole Surkala, were jailed on suspicion of child endangerment.
The conditions were horrendous.
