Model accused in animal torture video concerned about career

Stephanie Hird granted bond, placed on house arrest


MIAMI – In her orange jail jumpsuit, a concerned Stephanie Hird answered questions from a judge and a public defender one day after her arrest in connection with a pornographic video in which several women performed sex acts on and tortured animals.

"Will there be any limitations based on my job that I'm a model and I travel nationwide to make my money?" Hird, 29, asked the judge Thursday morning.

The answer is no. Hird was granted $7,500 bond and placed on house arrest.

Hird also revealed in court that she has been taking medication for mood disorder and social anxiety, which she said was denied to her in jail.

Sara Zamora was arrested earlier this month on eight counts of animal cruelty for her role in the video called "SOS Barn," Miami-Dade police said.

According to the 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."
