Jonathan Edward Medley, of Geneva, Alabama, was charged with having sex with his wife’s dog, Buster, because he was upset that she paid too much attention to the dog.
His wife discovered the truth when, fearing that Medley was sleeping with another woman, she hid a recording device.
“She actually thought he was having an affair with another woman and hid a recording device,” Geneva Police Capt. Ricky Morgan said. “She learned he was in fact molesting the dog.”
The 2-year-old shih tzu suffered injuries that police feared would lead to his euthanization, but Buster is now recovering.
“We’ve dealt with hungry dogs, abandoned dogs, but never with a dog that was sexually abused. Speaking to her and him he was upset because she paid more attention to the dog than him, and this was her baby. This was his way of causing her the pain was to mess with the dog,” said Geneva Police Lieutenant Ricky Morgan said to WTVY.
