MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A second adult model, accused of killing barnyard animals in fetish porn videos, has been arrested and charged with five counts of animal cruelty.

On Thursday a judge set bail for Stephanie Hird, 29, at $7,500. If she is released she will be on house arrest and have to wear a GPS monitoring device.

A South Florida native, Hird now lives in Arkansas. She was arrested Wednesday while trying to board a plane home at Miami International Airport, according to CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald.

Two weeks ago a adult fetish model Sara Zamora, 28, was charged with eight felony counts of animal cruelty for reportedly decapitating chickens and beating rabbits in animal torture sex fetish videos.

Hird is accused of similar acts.

According to police, the videos was filmed at the South Miami-Dade home of Adam Redford who is listed as a co-defendant, but had not been charged in the animal cruelty case in Miami-Dade County.

In one video, Zamora gropes a man’s genitals with her left hand while “repeatedly cutting a chicken’s neck using hedge clippers with her right,” according to the Miami Herald. In others, she posed “in a sexy outfit” after hacking off the head of another screaming bird. Zamora goes by the name Gloria Shynez on the internet and claims to have been modeling since the age of 19 on the site Model Mayhem with flexible rates, according to the paper.

Hird, who also performs online pornography under the name Megan Jones, according to the Miami Herald, openly flaunts other fetishes, including feet tickling and bondage. She was in her hometown this week for work, openly accepting fantasy fetish sessions, according to online social media profiles.

So-called “crush” animal torture videos aren’t new and have been the target of past legal crackdowns. In 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a law that outlawed depictions of “intentionally maimed, mutilated, tortured, wounded, or killed,” saying it was too broad and violated the right to free speech.

The federal law had been aimed at videos that often depict women slowly crushing animals to death “with their bare feet or while wearing high-heeled shoes,” sometimes while “talking to the animals in a kind of dominatrix patter,” the opinion read.

But the 2010 decision did not apply to the actual acts themselves of extreme cruelty to animals — and did not preclude the passing of future laws that narrowly applied to crush videos.
