Man from Mi who was seen on video sexually abusing a dog has died

Man from Mi who was seen on video sexually abusing a dog has died

A Michigan man caught on video sexually abusing a dog died before his case could be resolved.

The dog is disturbing

A Michigan man took “man’s best friend” way too far by anally abusing his dog and recording the incident on video with a tablet PC.

This Bay City man became a wanted man when his three-year-old grandson was playing with his grandfather’s tablet and discovered a video of his grandfather having sex with a dog. The child then showed the video to his father, who recognized the man as his father. This is really crazy.

Before police could arrive and arrest Gramps, he became a fugitive and fled to Alabama to stay with a relative. His son alerted police that they might find the fugitive in Alabama. Police then arrested him in Colbert County, Alabama, and had him brought back to Michigan to face trial.
