Once again, deputies from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office have busted someone who went to Craigslist looking for sex with an animal.
This time, a 22-year-old Phoenix man went to the "Missed Connections" section of Craigslist seeking a male horse "on which to commit the act of fellatio," according to the MCSO.

The ad on Craigslist, which is still active at the time of this post, was listed on April 8, and states:
I am 22 years old and I want to play with a male Horse. simple as that. If you have access to a Male horse, and can allow me access to a male horse, then contact me please ;) I will do something in return.
Detectives were able to identify the poster as 22-year-old Donald Waelde, according to MCSO.
Another Craigslist visitor, who had a "genuine interest in horses," contacted the MCSO out of disgust, according to the Sheriff's Office.
According to an MCSO spokesman, "In the undercover investigation, Sheriff's deputies contacted the suspect and engaged Waelde in conversation where the suspect stated the sex act he wished to perform on the horse and agreed to meet the undercover detective on Tuesday."
The detective actually went to the meeting place in Anthem with a horse, borrowing one from the MCSO's Mounted Posse.
Waelde was immediately arrested after showing up to the meeting place, and the Sheriff's Office says he admitted to placing the ad and "stated his intentions to consummate the act."
