Terry Haupt of Colorado Loves Dogs -- Maybe a Little Too Much

Sheriff's deputies arrested a Colorado man on Wednesday on suspicion of conspiracy to commit bestiality after he put an ad on Craigslist that was answered by a police officer.
Terry Wayne Haupt, 52, apparently thought his dreams of puppy love had come true when a woman answered the ad he placed on September 25 seeking a woman interested in dogs.
For the next couple of weeks, he chatted with the "woman" about his desire to have sex with her and a dog at the same time. On the other side of cyberspace, though, there was no one eager to fulfill Haupt's furry fantasy -- just Deputy Dave Evans.
Haupt reportedly told his new pen-pal he'd like her to "take the dog's load and his at the same time," as they both had intercourse with the women simultaneously. We're not sure how that would've worked, but Haupt never got the chance to find out.
The deputy gave him the room number of a hotel and told him to come over. When he showed up, a female undercover officer with a dog greeted him. "Terry walked in and began to pet the dog," says a booking sheet. He was then arrested, at which point he confessed fully to the crime, police say.
The Maricopa County Sheriffs Office is seeking one count of conspiracy to commit bestiality, a lower-level felony'.
Haupt's living with his uncle in Globe, where he's been for one month, records state. His Linked In page shows that he's from Colorado and that he's presently the "senior director of operations" for a telecommunications company called Intrado. A company official told New Times no one by that name worked for the firm.
