Oklahoma City may have the largest bestiality case in history — and without question the most disgusting. Diane Sue Whalen 54, and Donald Roy Seigfried, 55, are accused of training their dogs to have sex with Whalen and other women. Whalen was apparently busted by her own son who found 150 tapes of her performing sex acts with the dogs — including a mixed breed and labrador Lucky and Buddy and a blue heeler named Merlin owned by Seigfried. Seigfried allegedly filmed the events.
Whalen and Seigfried are charged with crimes against nature.
Remarkably, Seigfried is trying to get his dog back. The dogs have been accepted in a no-kill pet sanctuary. Click here.
The use of this type of law in an animal-human crime remains rare. It is punishable by 10 years in prison:
§21-886 Crime Against Nature-Penalty
Every person who is guilty of the detestable and abominable crime against nature, committed with mankind or with a beast, is punishable by imprisonment in the penitentiary not exceeding ten (10) years.
§21-887 Crime against nature, what penetration necessary.
Any sexual penetration, however slight, is sufficient to complete the crime against nature.
What is interesting is that the Oklahoma law’s history indicates that it was primarily designed to criminalize homosexuality rather than bestiality. Click here. In the wake of Lawrence v. Texas, it appears to be reverting back to a true bestiality focus.
