There seems to be an especially high number of people who get caught having sex with animals in Arizona.
Just earlier this week, when authorities said a man who was just recently jailed for allegedly branding his initials into his girlfriend's vagina had been re-arrested for allegedly having sex with a dog, we were only a little surprised.
- 10.) Botched foursome
To their credit, the trio of humans who planned to have a dog complete their foursome are the only ones on this list whose bestiality cases were just "attempted." The 2012 New Times "Best Attempted Foursome" winners, Shane Walker, Sarah Walker, and Robert Aucker, found their dog on Craigslist, but an undercover sheriff's deputy ended up being the owner of a dog. They all pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bestiality.
- 9.) The vagina-brander likes dogs
And here he is. New Times first reported Christopher Lynn Jackson's arrest earlier this month, after he allegedly drugged his then-girlfriend, and branded his initials into her vagina while she was passed out. Investigators served a warrant at his house this week, and recovered videos that "clearly show" Jackson and two women "performing various sex acts with a male German Shepherd." One of those women has been identified and arrested.
- 8.) Job-interview admission
Cody Slaughter was interviewing for a job with U.S. Customs and Border Protection last year, and they asked him about any criminal activity he'd been involved in. Cops say he admitted to the agency that he'd molested a 2-year-old and had sex with animals on a few occasions, despite police having no prior knowledge about any of this. The Yuma County Sheriff's Office told New Times the animals victimized included a horse, a dog, and a pig.
- 7.) Serial horse molester
Back in 2001, six horses at a Tempe stable were violated in the span of just a few months. Police never caught the culprit, but the last incident kind of confirmed what everyone was suspecting happened to the horses, as officers "found a sex toy, lubricant, and what police believe[d] to be human semen at the scene."

- 6.) Goat rapist
Goat owners in Yuma caught Jose Efrain Garcia-Arrendondo in the act with one of their goats back in 2005, according to the Yuma County Attorney's Office. His excuse was that he just drinking the goat's milk, but there was evidence someone had been having sex with the goats on the property. Garcia-Arredondo was found unfit to stand trial.

- 5.) Dog torturer
This horrific abuse was much more than acts of bestiality. Authorities in Pima County alleged Wayne Allen Dean had burned, maimed, bitten, and sawed the tail off a dog, in addition to allegedly sodomizing it. It also appeared that he bound the dog's legs with barbed wire. Dean served only a little more than a month in prison before being released in March 2008, state prison records show.
- 4.) Unknown poodle rapist
A Phoenix woman's toy poodle went missing one day in 2006, and when she stopped looking for it, the dog magically reappeared in her backyard -- covered in blood and feces. The dog had been sexually assaulted, and the dog-rapist was never caught.

- 3.) Puppies sexually assaulted to death
In 2006, two 6-week-old Shih Tzu puppies, each weighing less than two pounds, died from being sexually assaulted. The owner apparently didn't know what happened, and wasn't a suspect. Despite the Humane Society offering a $5,000 reward, the puppy-rapist was never caught.
- 2.) Guy who used puppy to "pleasure himself" in public
Two people, a 9-year-old boy and an adult, stumbled upon Thurman McGriff in Phoenix early last year. McGriff was holding a puppy, and the adult witness said McGriff "was using, or acting like he was using, his new puppy's mouth to pleasure himself." McGriff allegedly told the little boy "[I'm going to] do this to you" if the kid didn't stop staring at him.
- 1.) "You caught me Alan, I tried to fuck your sheep."
It's a quote that deserves to be in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, and should live for centuries of human beings to enjoy. Leroy Johnson, who was a deputy chief with the Mesa Fire Department in 2006, was seen by his neighbor corralling one of their sheep, and dragging it into their barn. The owner of the sheep found Johnson in the barn "bent over his sheep with his pants down," according to the police report. Johnson uttered his infamous response -- "You caught me Alan, I tried to fuck your sheep."
