A man who enjoyed dressing up as a dog called called Bubblegum Husky has been arrested for having regular s*x with a cat.
Ryan Havens Tannenholz, 28, of Boise, Idaho , abused the cat several times between January 2012 and January 2013, police said.
Tannenholz has been charged with six counts of crimes against nature and one count of cruelty to an animal, according to US reports.
Flayrah, an American website dedicated to fans of fictional furry animals, said that Tannenholz liked to portray himself as a range of animals.
These include a ‘sparkly’ black and white dog called Bubblegum Husky, a blue fox named Kismet Fox and another purple dog.
Police do not know if the abused cat belonged to Tannenholz and would not say who had reported the crimes.
Officers only issued an arrest for Tannenholz’ arrest late last month and refused to reveal how they learned about the alleged abuse.
Deputy Prosecutor Cathy Guzman said that such investigations can take a long time, especially if the alleged crime was not reported immediately.
She added: “It just means that at this point was the time when they had probable cause to do the arrest.”
Boise Police Department spokesman Charles McClure said that the charge was ‘definitely unusual’, adding that his department had handled similar cases only once or twice in his eight years on the force.
