Police: Virginia dog kennel owners arrested for crimes against nature, bestiality

SUFFOLK, Va. (AP) — Police in Virginia say a couple who owned a dog kennel engaged in bestiality caught on video.

Suffolk police said 42-year-old Christina Patterson was charged with multiple counts of bestiality and animal cruelty more than a year after the investigation began. Police say any state charges against 47-year-old Richard Allen Patterson cannot proceed until his federal firearms charges from July 2017 are resolved.

An investigator in the firearms case obtained a search warrant that led to the discovery of the videos. The Virginian-Pilot previously reported the Pattersons owned Imperial K-9 LLC until shortly after police began the bestiality investigation.

At that time, their lawyer Nicholas Renninger said she had received death threats.

The newspaper didn’t include comment Monday from Patterson or Renninger.
