Man caught by neighbor having sex with dog


Associated Press

RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- A Cumberland County man has been arrested after a neighbor says she saw him having sex with her friend's dog.

Authorities on Monday charged 33-year-old Ray Lynn Mitcham Jr., of Linden, with a crime against nature, a felony.

Debbie Tanna, spokeswoman for the county sheriff's office, says Mitcham's next-door neighbor went to speak with him Jan. 2. The neighbor, who is also Mitcham's landlord, told detectives she opened the door to his mobile home and saw him attacking the dog.

The mixed-breed female was taken to a veterinarian, who recovered a DNA sample. Tanna says Mitcham was arrested after his DNA profile matched the sample recovered from the dog.

Mitcham has been released on a $5,000 unsecured bond. It's not clear if he has a lawyer.

You will never be able to show your face in that town again dog. Ooops, wrong choice of words. I bet they giving him hell in jail with the " dog " jokes. Too weird.


Maybe the dog and his girlfriend can become sister wives.

Animal abuse

This has been going on since the beginning of time. Men cant keep their willies in their pants. Not something I would want to walk in on. You never know what people do in the privacy of their homes. KNOCK before you walk in ! Ewwww

Come On Das...

Did I sense a bit of biased feminism from you? No, I not defending this nutcase but it's just not only men doing this, there are some weird gals too. As for men and their "Willies", no, I don't want mine to grow cobwebs and I hope that when I'm 80 I will still have a sparkle in my eyes. Our drive is the very reason you are breathing air. BTW, I agree on most of what you post but not this one.


You are totally correct ! Women do this too and I really do not understand this affliction.

I hope you still have a sparkle in your eye when you are 80. Just make sure you don't start stalking Fido and you will be fine.

You folks at WWAY sure know

You folks at WWAY sure know how to pick and report the news.
Stories such as this shouldn't even be reported on, even with Freedom of the Press! I can just hear Brian Williams of the NBC Nightly News reporting on this...."NOT"!!!!!!
So your news staff deems this as important news for the community?
IMO..."Total Toilet Reporting!"

Hey, I've got an

Hey, I've got an idea........ you go live on an alternate universe, all by your flippin' lonesome, and you can make up and read whatever news stories are to your liking! ENJOY!!!!

Ignorant trash

SO DON'T READ ABOUT IT!! Why is that so hard for you ignorant folks? If you don't like the story don't read it. People are sick of hearing people like you whine. Not only did you take the time to read it, you took the time to post on it as well.

Amen! This is America and

Amen! This is America and we have a right to pick and choose what we read.


This guy is on about every news site on the internet. I just Googled his name in quotations and I got 12,000 hits.

This guy will never live this down. LMAO

Local news

I read this yesterday on WRAL. The Fayetteville Observer reported this too. It is on WECT.

Maybe you can meet with someone at WWAY so that they may tailor the news to your liking.

AMEN!!!! I think I am sick

AMEN!!!! I think I am sick of WWAY as much as this freak....the end.......

i hope the dog had her shots!

i hope the dog had her shots!


This man is sick. Get him off the streets and get him some help. First and foremost, he needs spiritual help and then he needs to begin treatment. He is a sicko and we can only imagine what he is capable of. If he has any pets, they should be removed immediately and neighbors need to watch him.

I don't know what kind of dog he was messing with, but chances are the next time, the dog will tear him to pieces.


Boy, I sure hope any offspring has the mama's looks. I was tempted to say brains too, but after she piled up with this joker, I'm not so sure...

U dun it now

Dern it Cletus, you done did screw th' pooch this time. Ya know ya only supposed ta be with yo cousizns & sisters.
