The pensioner was caught in the act on Monday morning by a member of staff in the pony’s stable at a horse-riding centre in the town of Thiais, about 10 km south of Paris. 

“He was caught by surprise in the pony's box, clearly in the middle full sexual act with the animal,” Le Parisen newspaper wrote.

The staff member then alerted the police who arrested the man later that morning. On Tuesday police interviewed the witness, but she was unable to be absolutely sure that intercourse took place.

However on Thursday police released the pensioner due to insufficient evidence against him.

According to a psychiatrist, the man did not appear to be suffering from any disorder.

A judicial source told Le Parisien that the case would now most likely be closed.

Bestiality has been illegal in France since 2004. The crime carries a maximum prison sentence of two years and a €30,000 fine.

Sex acts on animals were only officially banned in Denmark in April this year, bringing the country's bestiality laws in line with its neighbours.

French police shoot dead knife-wielding man at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport

French Border police at the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris shot - and killed - man who was wielding a knife in the public area of the airport on Wednesday.

French police shoot dead knife-wielding man at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport

Border police reportedly shot a man with aggressive behaviour who brandished a knife in the public area of the Charles de Gaulle airport outside of Paris, on Wednesday morning, police and airport sources told AFP.

“This morning officers neutralised a threatening individual in possession of a knife at the Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport,” the Paris police department said on its Twitter account.

A source close to the investigation told BFMTV that the man – who was likely homeless – went towards the officers, despite being asked several times to put the knife down. In response, police shot the man in the abdomen, and the individual later died.

The incident took place in the busy, public area of terminal 2F around 8:20 am, when “a homeless man started bothering security agents and border police were called in to remove him”.

Initially the man left while yelling curses but he soon returned and brought out a knife, when one of the officers fired his weapon.

An AFP photographer who witnessed the scene said “a large person of colour brandished something that looked like a knife at the police”.

“He was ordered to stop but kept advancing toward them, and an officer fired a single shot.”

The man was quickly put on a stretcher and evacuated, the photographer said. 

Security forces have been on high alert for terrorist attacks since a wave of jihadist killings that have killed more than 250 people since 2015, often by so-called “lone wolves” who often target police.
