An Alabama man has been charged with four counts of bestiality after authorities found out that he had been having sex with his female German Shepard. The Dreamin’ Demon reports that Russell Meyers of Phil Campbell accidentally outed his perverted activities when he unwittingly left a voicemail to a friend while in the middle of his so-called “lovemaking.”
The recipient of the obscene voicemail immediately called police when they realized that they were listening to the sounds of Meyers having sex with his dog. When authorities showed up to question the man, he admitted to having a sexual relationship with the German Shepard “multiple times,” in his shed. He has since been arrested and held on $6,000 bond. He’s also been ordered to have no contact with his neighbor (the recipient of the voicemail). He is also ordered to stay away from animals and firearms. If he is convicted of this crime, which is a Class A misdemeanor in the state of Alabama, he could be ordered to register as a sex offender.

Russell Meyers isn’t the only Alabama man to be busted for having sex with animals. A 39-year-old Geneva man was arrested this year after he reportedly molested his wife’s Shih Tzu dog. He reasoned that he did what he did because his wife gave the dog more attention than she gave him. He was caught when his wife bugged their house to see if he had been cheating on her. Even though his crimes were particularly brutal — he raped a 10 lb. dog — he was only held on $535.00 bond. Back in 2011 a Coker man was arrested after at least three different witnesses saw him having sex with a 40 lb. dog. Samuel Earl Sims admitted to having sex with the dog, and was charged with animal cruelty.
There are currently approximately 10 states in the country that do not outlaw the act of bestiality. However, in most of the country it is a misdemeanor offense. Meanwhile, in at least 18 states it is a felony that carries prison time.
As for Russell Meyers, it’s hopeful that the Alabama man gets some kind of counseling while going through the system regarding this case. It’s been reported that the German Shepard, along with a chihuahua, have been removed from the home and put in the care of animal control.
