    Miami-Dade Police confirmed a second woman has been arrested in connection to an animal torture pornographic video.

    Stephanie Hird, 29, was arrested Wednesday and charged with five counts of animal cruelty, according to online jail records.

    Hird, who lives in Arkansas, was arrested while trying to board a plane at Miami International Airport, according to The Miami Herald.

    She is being held on $7,500 bond. It is unknown if she has an attorney.

    Earlier this month, co-defendant Sara Zamora, 28, was charged with eight counts of animal cruelty for her role in a video called “SOS Barn,” according to the Herald, which first reported the story.

    The video shows her and other pornographic actresses torturing and killing chickens, rabbits and other animals for the “sexual gratification of its viewers,” according to police.

    In one clip of “SOS Barn,” police said Zamora is seen groping a man’s genitals with one hand while cutting a chicken’s neck with hedge clippers with her other hand, the Herald reported. She also karate-chopped the necks of several rabbits and admitted to killing them.

    Videos that depict animal torture and death is illegal under Florida law.

    Miami-Dade detectives learned about the video from animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
