The Clearwater Police began investigating Eric Antunes, 29, after receiving a tip that he possessed child pornography.After searching his phone and computer, police said they found pictures of Antunes performing oral sex on his girlfriend’s three-legged dog Ruby, the Tampa Bay Times reported.
In a strange twist, the prosecution won’t be able to charge Antunes with bestiality because the Florida law does not include oral sex.
It was only last year that the Florida legislature finally passed a law banning bestiality.
Antunes had worked as a contract employee at the Pinellas County Humane Society before he was arrested on May 1.
He was due to be arraigned yesterday for three counts of possession, control or intentional viewing of child pornography.
According to reports, Antunes’ girlfriend wasn’t aware that Ruby was allegedly being defiled. Authorities say that the dog is in good health. Reports have not specified Ruby’s sex.
