PHOENIX (CBS5) -
Maricopa County deputies arrested three people Monday night on suspicion of conspiring to commit bestiality with a dog.
A married couple and a friend used the website Craigslist.com to find a dog for the woman to have sex with, according to Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The three allegedly contacted an undercover deputy for the services of a male golden shepherd canine mix.
Shane Walker, 38, and Sarah Dae Walker, 33, both of Pinal County and Robert A. Aucker, 29, of Gilbert were arrested, according to Sgt. Brandon Jones of the sheriff's office.
Each was booked into jail on one count conspiracy of bestiality-sexual contact with an animal.
Shane Walker is a flight attendant, Sarah Walker a self-employed photographer and Aucker a car salesman, according to a news release.
Jones said the Walkers described themselves as "swingers" who enjoy an "open marriage." Aucker told detectives he and Sarah Walker have had a sexual relationship for the last month and that she shared with him dreams of having sex with a dog.
"People who do this for enjoyment are a different breed, that's for certain," Arpaio said.
Detectives said the three drove to an agreed upon location and even offered the undercover detective and owner of the dog to join in the act.
In 2011, two similar cases involving Craigslist.com resulted in convictions, according to the release. Bestiality is illegal in Arizona, but not in other states.
"I remain extremely disappointed in the leadership at Craigslist.com for refusing to do what they can to stop this," Arpaio said. "While they aren't doing anything to stop it, I will continue to enforce all animal cruelty laws."
