Washington man sentenced for having sex with dogs
Jun 02 2009 09:56AM CDT
A Washington state man has been sentenced to 30 days in jail for having sex with his two dogs. Troy Whitson entered an Alford plea Monday in Lewis County Superior Court, meaning he admitted no wrongdoing but acknowledged he'd likely be convicted. The man did tell the judge he didn't understand what all the fuss was about.
The 21-year-old from the town of Cinebar (SI'-ne-bahr) now is restricted from owning animals for two years, and must undergo human-animal therapy before he can register a dog.
His malamutes have been placed with new owners.
Prosecutor Michael Golden said Whitson is a member of a group known as Furries who identify with animals and dress the part in makeup, ears and tail.
Golden says Furries gather for social events but having sex with animals is not part of their normal behavior. He says two of Whitson's Furry friends witnessed the animal sex and turned him in. They told police they thought Whitson was some kind of perverted loony and needed to be institutionalized.
