America’s Dog Rape Epidemic

Posted on | February 21, 2019 | Comments Off on America’s Dog Rape Epidemic


In the middle of a long Wednesday night post, I made mention of two recent cases — in Oldsmar, Florida, and South Euclid, Ohio — in which men were arrested for having sex with dogs. But these are not isolated incidents. There is a nationwide trend of dog rape.


A Portland man was arrested [Feb. 13] after authorities say he admitted to raping his fiancée’s dog, which later was euthanized after the sexual assault caused internal injuries.
Fidel Lopez, 51, told Portland police that he and the dog, a Lhasa Apso mix named Estrella, were lying in bed last November while his girlfriend was out, and he got upset when she wouldn’t respond to his calls and texts, according to a probable cause affidavit. Lopez said he’d been drinking alcohol at the time and “out of anger” sexually assaulted the dog, the affidavit said. . . .
According to the affidavit, the girlfriend later brought the dog to DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital after she heard Estrella whining while hiding under the couch and discovered blood and injuries to the animal. She told staff that her fiancé “displayed some potential bestiality tendencies,” mentioning that he showed his genitals to dogs and bragged about watching another person sexually assault a dog.
The girlfriend said Lopez had asked her if she’d consider getting a dog bigger than Estrella, the affidavit said.
A necropsy was performed on Estrella after she was euthanized. Traces of Lopez’s DNA were found in the dog, the affidavit said.


A Houston man has been charged with three counts of bestiality after allegedly offering up three of his dogs for sex to an undercover police officer, according to the Houston Police Department.
Juan Pablo Tschen, 31, was arrested [Feb. 14] and has since been released after posting $3,000 bond.
Three of his dogs believed to be used for bestiality were also seized during his arrest, police said.
Tschen was collared during an undercover sting conducted by the Houston Police Department’s major offenders and animal cruelty units. He’s accused of participating in several online forums surrounding the illegal act, which grabbed the attention of investigators.
At some point, he offered up his dogs to an undercover officer, according to court documents.


A state district judge has refused to lower bond for a Bossier City police officer accused of performing sex acts with a dog.
Terry Yetman, 38, will remain jailed under a $350,000 bond. . . .
Yetman, a four-year veteran of the Bossier City Police Department, was arrested in December on 40 counts of sexual abuse of an animal.
Prosecutors said Yetman engaged in sexual conduct with a dog and possessed pornographic images of a person and an animal engaged in sexual conduct. . . .
The dog, a Belgian Malinois, is being moved from the local animal shelter to an animal rescue in Texas, prosecutors said.


Police in Virginia say a couple who owned a dog kennel engaged in bestiality caught on video.
Citing [an Oct. 15] release from Suffolk police, The Virginian-Pilot reports 42-year-old Christina Patterson was charged with multiple counts of bestiality and animal cruelty more than a year after the investigation began.
Police say any state charges against 47-year-old Richard Allen Patterson cannot proceed until his federal firearms charges from July 2017 are resolved.


A Bellmead man was charged with trespassing, evading arrest and bestiality after officers responded to a report that a dog was being sexually abused [July 7] in the backyard of a home, police said . . .
Philip Mercon, 27, was arrested without incident, police said.
He was taken to the McLennan County Jail.
His name did not appear on the jail’s online roster late Monday morning.
Officers were sent just before 2 a.m. . . . to the 2000 Block of Montrose Street in Bellmead where a witness told them he observed a man “sexually abusing a dog,” police said in a press release . . .
When the man spotted the officers, he let go of the dog and tried to run, police said.

These cases are the tip of an iceberg of America’s dog-rape epidemic because, of course, most of these sick fiends are never caught. And while it’s impossible to estimate how common these heinous crimes are, they certainly are more common than MAGA-hat-wearing racist homophobes assaulting black actors at 2 a.m. on the streets of Chicago.

Think about that. The press conference is scheduled for 10 a.m. ET.
