Owning a dog is a big responsibility. You must be prepared to feed it and care for it. Some people take their dogs for granted, however, and end up starving them. One Florida man was caught doing all this and more.
WKMG Orlando reports that James Bull, 61, of Daytona Beach was arrested on Tuesday after neighbors reported him "having sexual conduct" with his pet dog. Some people decide to hide these kind of crimes on their phone, but Bull was reportedly committing his crimes on his front porch for everyone to see. I would say something about having no shame, but there's something worse going on here than a lack of common decency.
See for yourself:
What's worse - Bull's dog wasn't even being taken care of. When police arrived, they found that the dog had no food, water or shelter. The 8-month-old female dog was transported to the local Humane Society for treatment.
As for Bull, he was taken to the Volusia County Jail where he's being held on a $15,000 bond. He has been charged with an animal cruelty felony and an animal cruelty misdemeanor.
Can you guess which charge is for the actual sex act? If you guessed misdemeanor, you'd be correct. Florida law labels bestiality as a misdemeanor which means Bull will face a maximum of 1 year in prison and $1,000 fine. As for the felony, he will face up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
