On Oct. 16, Roy Tuck of Poplar Bluff, Mo. was charged with unlawful sex with an animal. Princess, his Pug K9, was taken into custody at that time.

"There was a health care worker that went to Mr. Tuck's residence," Chief Whiteley said. "He had asked her to film some sexual activity between Tuck and the K-9. In all my years, this has been the only time something like this happen."

On Jan. 16 Tuck pled guilty to the charge and received an SIS (suspended imposition of sentence), two years unsupervised probation, and was ordered to pay court costs.

Now Tuck wants his dog back and Chief Whiteley of Poplar Bluff says that’s not going to happen unless a court orders him to do so. Whiteley has contact the ASPCA legal team for advice on how to proceed.

According to court documents, stipulations in Tuck’s probation states that he cannot be in possession of a mammal during his two year probation period.

Princess is doing much better these days and is at the Poplar Bluff Animal Shelter. Chief Whiteley hopes they can resolve the matter soon so that Princess can be put up for adoption.
