A woman set up a spy camera after she suspected that her husband was cheating on her, police in Alabama said.
39-year-old Jonathan Edward Medley is accused of having sex with his wife’s dog named Buster.
Medley of Geneva, was charged with animal cruelty after his wife discovered him having sex with her 2-year-old shih tzu.
His wife made the disturbing discovery while spying on him for fear that he was sleeping with another woman, police said.
“She really thought he was having an affair with another woman and she hid a recording device,” said Geneva Police Capt. Ricky Morgan.
“She learned that he was indeed unfaithful, but not with another woman. She caught him having sex with her beloved dog,” Morgan added.
Morgan said that Medley was “upset because he felt that she was paying more attention to the dog than him.”
Buster was injured during the assault. The dog was taken to a veterinarian, where it is recovering.
Medley was held on $535 bail after his arrest. He only faces a misdemeanor charge under the Alabama bestiality law.
