Jesus Gutierrez, 39, lived with his 43-year-old girlfriend and her pet Maltese dog, Princess, in a New York City apartment. One day in April, when the girlfriend left for work, she set up a video camera to record what was going on in the apartment during her absence. She was certainly correct in suspecting that Gutierrez was up to no good. Prosecutors in New York say Gutierrez “assaulted the dog for a half hour, sodomizing the dog with his fingers. . . . The dog was visibly distressed in the video, prosecutors said.” Gutierrez was arrested “and the traumatized dog was taken to a veterinary hospital,” the New York Daily News reported.
Gutierrez was certainly not the only dog-sex enthusiast to make headlines in 2016, a year in which bestiality seemed increasingly common:
- Deanna Marie Wilson, 41, of Port Angeles, Wash., was charged in October for allegedly raping a 15-year-old boy and having sexual contact with her pet dog, incidents she reportedly captured in photos on her cellphone. “Wilson is alleged to have had provided alcohol to a group of minors before having sexual contact with the boy,” according to an affidavit quoted by the Peninsula Daily News. “Investigators alleged that Wilson recorded herself during the incident and sent a naked image of the boy to one of his friends, according to a police report. During a forensic examination of Wilson’s cellphone, police discovered images of [herself] having sexual contact with a small, poodle-like dog.”
- Kimberly Coggin, 39, of Calhoun County, Miss., pleaded guilty in August to having “having sex with more than one animal,” after photos of her with dogs emerged online. She was given a suspended 10-year sentence with five years’ probation and registered as a sex offender.
- Reinaldo Diaz, 68, was arrested in Statesboro, Ga., after he was reportedly seen “naked behind a residence straddling a black-and-white pit bull. According to police, officers arrived on the scene and saw Diaz engaging in a sexual act with the male pit bull” on Sept. 13. Diaz was charged with bestiality, cruelty to animals and third-offense public indecency.
- Rachael Alexis Harris, 19, and her husband, Corey Dean Harris, 23, were arrested in Pennsylvania Dec. 13 on animal cruelty and obscenity charges for allegedly recording sex videos with their dog. The man’s sister reportedly turned over her brother’s camera, containing the dog-sex videos, to the local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. SPCA officials contacted police. An affidavit in the case describes Mrs. Harris “attempting manipulation of the dog’s penis into her vagina,” “attempting to allow the dog to perform oral sex on her vagina” and “masturbating the dog with her hand in a rapid motion back and forth.”
- Daryl Music, 27, was arrested in Shelby County, Tenn., after he reportedly admitted having sex with a dog in November. “A woman and her husband told police that they left Music at the home,” the Memphis Commercial Appeal reported. “When they returned home they said the dog appeared to be injured and was limping, police said. The couple said they asked Music about the dog and he told them that he sexually assaulted the dog.”
- In September, police in Warren, Ohio, arrested a 16-year-old boy they say admitted to having sex with a dog. The city had recently enacted a municipal ordinance against bestiality, because Ohio had no state law against it. The lack of a state law was highlighted by “the case of a Warren man, Salvador Rendon, who investigators say had sex with two dogs multiple times for six years,” WKBN-TV reported.
- Miranda Johns, 21, of Naples, Fla., was charged with dog sex in March. According to WPIX-TV, Ms. Johns had accused her boyfriend, Kurtz Villavicencio, 30, of sexually assaulting her. “Villavicencio reportedly offered his phone to authorities as proof that he did not attack Johns and told them about videos on his phone of her having sex with her pets. Police said in one of the clips, Johns was seen receiving oral sex from the dogs as she masturbated. Villavicencio allegedly encouraged Johns to send him images of her sex acts with the dogs . . . They also plotted the possibility of her having sex with a bigger dog.”
- Anthony J. Danner, 55, of Peoria, Ill., was indicted in October on charges of having sex with two dogs. According to the Peoria Journal Star, a months-long police investigation found that Danner “engaged in a sex act with a female husky named Velvet and male malamute named Wolf.”
- Gene Warner, 36, of Queensbury, N.Y., pleaded guilty in July to multiple charges involving drugs, weapons and sex with a dog. During a search that uncovered methamphetamine, marijuana, and a rifle, police say they also found “a cell phone with a video showing [Warner] having a sexual encounter with the dog,” WCMH-TV reported.
- Hannah Marie Haynes, 23, was arrested in March after sheriff’s deputies in Cherokee County, S.C., received videos of her performing sexual acts with a Dachshund, WSPA-TV reported: “Investigators say Haynes took the videos of herself and sent them to a man who then gave them to the North Charleston Police Department.”
By my count, that’s 11 Americans who decided in 2016 that “man’s best friend” could be “friends with benefits,” as Don Surber quipped.
Dog sex is not just an American problem, however. In Australia, “Jenna Louise Driscoll pleaded guilty in Brisbane District Court to three bestiality charges” in November, after “police unearthed messages and videos of the sex acts on her phone.” In India, police arrested Aslam Khan, 22, who was accused of killing a dog and having sex with the corpse. In Canada, police arrested Adrian Choken, 29, in December after a witness reported seeing him “having intercourse with a dog.” A prosecutor said Choken’s “pants were down to his ankles and the dog was in his lap trying to get away.” When a bystander intervened, “Choken tried to disengage from the act, but was essentially stuck in the dog. Fortunately, he was able to eventually disengage and the dog ran away yelping.”
During 2016, a lot of bitches “ran away yelping,” but this may not be the proper time to discuss Hillary Clinton’s feminist supporters.
