MIAMI – A 28-year-old Miami woman was arrested on eight counts of animal cruelty with intent to injure or kill after police said she engaged in sex acts during the filming of an animal torture video.

Sara Zamora was arrested Friday afternoon for her role in a video called "SOS Barn," Miami-Dade police said.

According to a police report, the video shows Zamora and "other unidentified women torturing and killing a wide variety of animals, including chickens, rabbits and more for the sexual gratification of its viewers."

Some of the video clips were allegedly filmed at Zamora's home in the 12200 block of Southwest 119th Terrace, police said.

According to the arrest affidavit, in one of the video clips Zamora is seen performing a sexual act while repeatedly cutting a chicken's neck with hedge clippers.

Police said the information and videos in this case were provided by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA.

Based on the video trailers observed by police, Zamora was arrested Friday. Police said Zamora was being held without bond stemming from prior charges.
