Police found a belt in the barn that they believe belongs to the unknown perpetrator.

It's not the first time zoophilia has hit the headlines in Switzerland. 
In 2015 a series of sexual acts on horses were reported in the canton of Jura. 
In February of that year one man was found guilty of abuse against animals in the village of Courroux. 
But several new cases then occurred later that year.
