'Krypto1701' arrested for animal cruelty
In mid-May, the dog warden of Richmond County, Ohio, received an e-mail tip on Bower, including links to bestiality-themed websites. Investigators found photos of Bower with multiple animals, including several dogs and possibly a horse.
When a search warrant was executed on Bower's apartment, investigators seized his three-year-old shepherd-mix dog, as well as his computer. According to records, other items collected included a book about bestiality titled "Dearest Pet", plastic signs that read "Pets Welcome", and a plastic, blow-up sheep.
Investigators have said that they would like to charge Bower with more serious offenses, but Ohio has no laws regarding bestiality. Prompted by this case, Ohio State Representative Jay Goyal plans to introduce legislation that would explicitly outlaw sexual contact with animals.
