Man arrested after dressing up as a dog and having sex with a cat
Ryan Havens Tannenholz faces up to five years in prison if found guilty
He is said to be a 'furry' - a member of a community of people who dress as animals
A man who enjoys dressing up as a dog has been arrested for having sex with a cat in Idaho.
Ryan Havens Tannenholz, 28, is accused of sexually abusing the pet several times over the course of a year.
Police arrested the man from Boise, Idaho, on August 1st, on six felony counts of crimes against nature and one misdemeanor count of cruelty to an animal.
Tannenholz is said to be a 'furry' - the name given to a member of a community of people who dress as animals.
According to Flayrah, a site dedicated to furries, he had a number of animal alter-egos including a dog, a wolf, a white husky and a fox.
Photos on a social media site posted by Tannenholz appear to show him in character as a creature called Bubblegum.
He is currently being held in custody in lieu of a $250,000 bond and faces up to five years in prison if convicted.
An arrest warrant was issued on July 31, and he was arrested on August 1. Police did not specify how the alleged activities came to light.
On Tannenholz's Bubblegum Husky website, he describes his interest in cats and reveals his own pet cat named Einstein.
He writes: 'Have you ever been on the internet and seen one of those cat videos? Bubblegum Husky sure has and man, I'll tell you what, they really get me going!
'Cats are so furry, soft plush and loving. Plus, only Bubblegum Husky can REALLY appreciate how truly great these furry felines truly are.'
Most "Furries" are not into it for sexual gratification. They see it as a way to get in touch with their animal spirit.
The kinky furries are a minority, loathed by the family-friendly animal spirit furries.
I thought furries had sex with other humans dressed up as animals. This is really gross.
That pussy stinks.
If only he'd dressed up like a cat, maybe no one would have noticed.
Some people are sick and gross.
This is gross but it sounds stupid to put someone in jail for five years over it.
Probably a freeprr from freeperville!
Well, r21, they certainly couldn't put him in the animal shelter!
Thanks for explaining what a furry is.
I can't fucking believe there is a furry on DL.
There aren't gay furries, are there?
Furries are scum of the Earth. Yuk!
Raping a poor adorable kitty cat!?!?!? :0
This guy cannot be regenerated. Lock him for life and throw away the key!
At least one good thing has come out of all this:

He could be regenerated if he's from Gallifrey.
