Peter Bower Believes No Animal’s Behind Left: Accused of Doggy-Style Sex Literally

Shelby, Ohio

I had to double-check and make sure I wasn’t reading a news story from West Virginia, but nope, Ohio it is.

I am speaking of course of a case involving 31-year-old Peter Bower. Police have charged him with animal cruelty for allegedly having sex with a dog he adopted recently.

It all started with an anonymous tip, according to authorities. “The tip was allegations about bestiality, sexual conduct with an animal,” said Richland County Dog Warden Dave Jordan. The tipster even provided links to websites relating to bestiality, where cops reportedly found evidence, including photos, of Bower having sex with multiple animals. The sexual escapades allegedly involved at least three dogs and possibly a horse (or maybe that was simply a pro basketball player).

Investigators moved on with a search warrant at Bower’s apartment and seized his computer. On the computer investigators reportedly found pictures and stories of his sexual rendezvous with his cherished animals. They also found a bestiality book, “Dearest Pet,” and a plastic blow-up sheep.

Bower’s neighbors were a little freaked out by all this, especially since he ran a pet-sitting service. One neighbor recalls Bower offering to walk his dog for free, once learning the man couldn’t afford his services.

Now Bower had a steady live-in companion, Tara, a 3-year-old shepherd mix dog. Investigators went ahead and seized her to, as a veterinarian confirmed the dog suffered vaginal bruising. Tara is now recovering at the local shelter now.

Bower faces two misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty. Investigators said that they would like to charge Bower with more serious offenses but Ohio has no laws regarding bestiality. Bower posted bond within 24 hours of his arrest. He has pleaded innocent to charges will face a pre-trial hearing at the end of July.


Dogs Can’t Survive 160° Car In Florida Sun

Down in Florida, temperatures have been surpassing 90 degrees regularly. That means the inside of a car can get up to 160 degrees if it’s left out in the sun. At such extreme temperatures, it would be tough for a human to survive for an hour and a half, and animal experts agree that a dog wouldn’t stand a chance.

Of course, 27-year-old Amanda Foxwell doesn’t think so. However, after leaving her Catahoula dog named Jones in her car, police are attempting to re-educate her. According to Jacksonville police, Foxwell left her dog inside her car in the sun for 90 minutes on Friday. Jones died after being pulled from the car. Foxwell is facing felony animal cruelty charges. According to a police report, even after someone warned Foxwell that her dog needed help, Foxwell waited another 23 minutes to go get it out of the car.

“All I can tell you is that the report has false information,” Foxwell said in an email. “I have witnesses and a clean record. I loved my dog.”

Scott Trebatoski, of Animal Care and Protective Services, said that a car parked in the shade can heat up 40 degrees in 10 minutes. If it’s parked in the sun, he said, the car temperature can increase by 80 degrees.

“Which makes your car an oven,” he said. “If you park your car in the sun, it could be 160 degrees in 10 minutes.”

Residents who see a dog or cat in a car can call police, and officers and animal control officers have the authority to smash a car window to get the animal out of that car.
