Jerald "Jerry" Hill was recently arrested by the Boone County Sheriff’s Department Cyber Crimes Task Force for allegedly trying to find a dog to have sex with on Craigslist.

Hill was arrested in Columbia, Mo., on Tuesday for attempted unlawful sex with an animal and attempted animal abuse, according to a press release by the Boone County Sheriff’s Department.

Columbia Tribune reports that Hill allegedly placed an ad on Craigslist seeking two types of animals, one a dog, to have intercourse with. A task force detective reportedly responded to Hill's ad via email as someone offering a dog and set up a meeting.

Hill traveled to a Columbia park where he was arrested by deputies.

Hill is currently the president and CEO of the Windermere Baptist Conference Center in Roach, Mo.

“The board is very supportive of him and grateful for his work at Windermere,” Windermere Board Chairman Arthur Mallory told "We are concerned for the well-being of Jerry... and we are also concerned with the well-being of Windermere."

“We will be in the process of looking for a new president and CEO,” added Mallory. “Windermere will continue to function in a good way.... It is a significant piece of God’s kingdom’s work.”
