An Alabama man was arrested and accused of having sex with his wife’s dog.
Geneva, Alabama, resident Jonathan Medley, 39, had sex with the 2-year-old male shih tzu named Buster after becoming angry that his wife was allegedly paying “more attention to the dog than him," AL.com reports.
Shih Tzus reportedly weigh between five and 10 pounds, according to WTVY.
“We've dealt with hungry dogs, abandoned dogs, but never with a dog that was sexually abused,” Geneva police Lt. Ricky Morgan told the Double Eagle. “Speaking to her and him he was upset because she paid more attention to the dog than him, and this was her baby. This was his way of causing her the pain was to mess with the dog.”
Morgan said that Medley’s wife became suspicious that her husband was having an affair with another woman, and set up a recording device in an effort to catch him. She ultimately discovered disturbing evidence that he was molesting her dog.
Medley was arrested and charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty. Bond was set at $535.
Buster suffered injuries from the incident but was last reported to be doing well after an examination, WTVY reported. It is unclear if Buster was returned to Medley's wife or not.
