Prosecutors say a man’s wife caught him having sex with their dog. He might be the first in the state charged under a new animal cruelty law
I found this post oddly enough searching for Pasado's and thought I would chime in here on another case like this in Washington. Just totally sick what these people do!
Here's the url to two of the articles and a video, hope people can help publish this case so everyone knows. There are seven dogs and four horses involved in this horrible sex ring.
I will only post excerpts due to copyrights.

SEATTLE -- Last week's animal-abuse arrest of a convicted cocaine smuggler wasn't the first time authorities had found something linking him to bestiality.
A Monroe police commander said Monday that when Douglas Spink's sport utility vehicle was pulled over in 2005, Spink was strangely protective of a female German shepherd that was with him, and he had stickers on the car indicating he was an animal-man-love activist.
After doing his time, Spink moved to a crudely built compound in Whatcom County, near the Canadian border. He was arrested last week on charges of violating the terms of his supervised release from prison by engaging in animal cruelty and withholding information from probation officers about his travel and assets.
A 51-year-old tourist from Great Britain was on the property and was arrested for investigation of bestiality after agents found videos of him abusing dogs. Investigators seized dozens of animals from the compound -- horses, dogs and mice.
According to documents filed in Whatcom County Superior Court on Monday as part of the case against the tourist, Spink was running a bestiality-themed Web site from the compound.
Investigators also said it appeared Spink operated a farm where visitors could engage in twisted sex acts with animals, and they said they found images of child pornography there.
Spink was pulled over in 2005 after investigators watched five suitcases of cocaine being loaded into his Chevy Tahoe. Clopp, a sergeant at the time, was a narcotics K-9 officer and took part in the search of the vehicle.
He said the initials written on the SUV's stickers were not obviously connected to bestiality. In fact, agents researched them in case they were signals of legitimacy to other smugglers.
That's when they learned the stickers concerned groups devoted to animal-human love, Clopp said.
"Who puts stickers on their cars -- even covertly -- saying you're into bestiality?" he asked.
People who knew Spink say his actions could have been avoided.
"He is very, very charming when he meets people in social situations," said Karen Reid who breeds horses on Fox Island.
She and Spink became friends 8 years ago and he maintained her company's Web site.
"The next thing I knew, my Web site became a porno site… It was one of those many sites you can go to to access beastiality."

BELLINGHAM, Wash. - Federal agents uncover a bizarre sex operation in Whatcom County that involves animals and a business that has attracted people from all over the world.
Under the blue tarps they say people from around the world would stay as sex tourists invited to abuse animals.
Among them is 51-year-old Stephen Clarke visiting from England on a month-long trip to the U.S.
He now sits in the Whatcom County Jail on three counts of cruelty to animals in the form of bestiality.
U.S. probation officers raided the compound looking for Douglas Spink who is suspected of running the operation and maintaining a Web site displaying home video of sexual abuse against animals.
Spink, a once millionaire businessman, was on parole for felony drug charges from 2005. He was convicted of transporting hundreds of pounds of cocaine through Snohomish County and served three years.
"You'd think you've seen it all in 36 years," said Whatcom County Sheriff Bill Elfo.
He says dozens of horses and dogs were seized from the compound. Some of them were so injured they had to be euthanized.
Investigators are searching through home video taken from the compound, which could result in additional arrests.
Douglas Spink will appear in a Seattle courtroom Friday morning. He is accused of violating his parole.
It is not clear what other charges he'll face.
Animal cruelty is now a felony offense in Washington state.
