MARION COUNTY, FL (WESH/CNN) - An unidentified Florida man is wanted by police in connection with sexually abusing a woman's miniature horses.

Horse owner and breeder Abby Conder stated that several of her world class miniature horses have been brutalized since May.

"[The horse] had been raped both by a man and by several objects," said Conder.

Conder stated the horse's injuries were so horrible, that "she looked like they put her whole bottom through a garbage disposal."

The owner's veterinarian found bodily fluids while examining the horse. Conder said Marion County Sheriff investigators took a report, but are limited in their ability to stop the suspect.

Police told Conder an arrest can only be made once the suspect is caught in the act.

Conder said a dog was bought to protect the horses, but was beaten to death.

The owner had surveillance cameras and a live internet feed installed in her barn to collect evidence.

Saturday the cameras captured the suspect.

Conder hopes that with the video released, someone will recognize the suspect and bring him to justice. She also sends out this warning to the suspect.

"If I catch this man in this barn taking out another one of my horses, I will come down and I will kill him," said Conder.
