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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    Why are they releasing the identity of the rape victim, now it will be hard for the other victims to come forward.

    How do you think the jail house conversation will go,

    He dude what you in for “I stole a million dollars from Wells Fargo”,
    “I killed my drug running buddy”, “I screwed my neighbors Dog”

    Im pretty sure there is an ass whoopen in there some where.

    Dont you know his mother must be so proud.

    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!”
