An Oklahoma City man is accused of stomping and kicking a colt to death, Oklahoma City police reported Tuesday.

Gustavo Zamora, 25, of Oklahoma City, was arrested Sunday on complaints of animal cruelty and giving police false information.

Police were called about 2:25 p.m. to a residence at 909 SE 22 in reference to a family disturbance. Witnesses told the officer a man had killed a 4- to 6-month-old colt, according to the incident report.

The man gave the officer a fake Mexican driver's license with the name Jose Ramon Quiroz, according to the report. One of the witnesses told the officer the man's real name was Gustavo G. Zamora.

One witness told police Zamora owned two of the three horses on the property. While Zamora and three other men were drinking, Zamaro wrapped a rope around the colt's nose and mouth and began leading it out of the fenced area, according to the report.

The witness told police the colt bucked and kicked until it collapsed on its right side. After the colt collapsed, Zamaro stomped and kicked it about 15 times until it stopped moving, according to the report.

Zamora was taken to the Oklahoma County jail. His bail is set at $2,000, jail officials said Tuesday.
