PHOENIX, Ariz. — A Washington man was arrested after deputies say he prostituted his dog in exchange for sex with various farm animals.

According to Tucson News Now, authorities say the investigation began when 56-year-old James Allen Darland allegedly contacted an undercover detective through a website to “arrange for sexual liaisons with various farm animals in exchange for sex with his own personal dog.”

Darland reportedly wanted to spend days on the farmer’s property in the Wickenburg area for the purpose of having sex with the various animals including miniature horses, dogs and goats.

Authorities said Darland admitted to detectives on emails and in phone calls that he has been having sex with his neighbor’s horse, dogs and sheep in the state of Washington. He also later admitted to having sex with animals on his routes he worked as a delivery man for 23 years.

Darland was arrested on a charge of conspiracy to commit bestiality.
