Everett Lee Compton, 49, has been charged with multiple counts of bestiality for allegedly having sex with a female donkey.
Compton, of Siloam Springs in Benton County, Arkansas, has been charged with bestiality, after police say he was recorded on a surveillance camera having intercourse with a local family’s pet donkey, on multiple occasions, this summer.
Preposterously, Compton blamed the bestiality on his marijuana habit!
Compton was arrested and taken into custody after Emert and Joyce Whitaker called 911 to report that a stranger was on their property, engaging in sexual activity with one of their two female donkeys.
According to multiple reports, Compton was caught red-handed, when officers found the suspect hiding in nearby bushes on July 17, after the couple noticed him engaging in the act on their security cameras.
According to an arrest affidavit cited by news station KHBS, when an officer questioned what Compton was doing on the Whitaker family’s property, he initially said “he was just taking a late-night stroll and decided to feed the donkeys some carrots.”
According to the cops, Compton initially denied having sex with the animal.
A police officer then informed the alleged trespasser that there were surveillance cameras installed on the property and that he planned on examining the footage.
Compton eventually admitted to sexual contact with the donkey… but blamed the deplorable acts on his marijuana habit. Compton told the officer he “smokes a lot of marijuana, which makes him do sick things,” according to the affidavit.
Owner Joyce Whitaker said she was “sickened and saddened because her pet donkey could not defend itself or ‘tell nobody.’”
The Whitakers recently installed cameras on their land after repeatedly finding evidence that someone had been coming onto their property and harassing their animals at night over the past three years, reported the Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette.
The couple posted ‘No Feeding’ and ‘No Trespassing’ signs on their property, as a deterrent.
On three separate occasions—in May, June and early July—the cameras caught a man, believed to be Compton, feeding the Whitakers’ donkeys bread, then covering their eyes with a shirt, standing behind a donkey and gyrating against it.
According to ArkansasMatters.com, additional photos show a man placing a bag over one donkey’s head, then getting behind the donkey and placing his pelvis against the buttocks of the animal.
The family had turned all the footage and photos over to the police.
Then, at around 1:30 a.m. on July 16, the Whitakers noticed that someone had once again entered the donkeys’ enclosure. They called police to come and arrest the suspect.
Compton promised the officer to seek professional help if they did not charge him with bestiality, but his pleas fell on deaf ears.
Compton is accused of four counts of bestiality, a Class A Misdemeanor; four counts of criminal trespassing, a Class B Misdemeanor; and five counts of cruelty to animals. He was booked in the Benton County Jail on bestiality charges and is being held on a $5,000 bond.
Multiple calls to Sergeant Jenkins and Deputy Thomas at Benton County Jail went unanswered.
