Human-Animal Sex Farm
Douglas Spink, 39,- once a dot.com millonaire - convicted smuggler/horse trainer, was living peacefully in Sumas Washington when he "hooked-up" with James Tait.
Tait, 58, is in prison on a bestiality indictment. Spink and Tait's conversations started an investigation, which led to Spink's arrest for probation violation and drug smuggling.
Law enforcement found videotapes. One showed a visitor, a man, having sex with dogs.
Spink, too, let people come to his farm and have sex with animals - it's reported.

The man - a 51-year-old, British national - Stephen Clarke - was arrested on four counts of bestiality.
"We don't know how many people visited this location, or how many engaged in illegal conduct," Sheriff Bill Elfo explained. "We'll see as the federal investigation unfolds."
On December 7th, 2012, The Bellingham Herald reported that Spink was arraigned, after being in federal prison since 2010.
Back in 2010, local prosecutors said they had decided not to prosecute Spink for animal cruelty, but Spink had other things to be worried about. With a previous conviction for trafficking cocaine worth millions of dollars, Spink had violated the conditions of his parole. Those violations included associating with criminals, telling lies in monthly reports and traveling without permission. That is the reason he was imprisoned for the past two years.
Prosecutors now want to put Spink on trial for the animal cruelty charges, hoping to prevent him from owning any animals again.
Just prior to his release from federal prison, local prosecutors had decided to take action, leading to the arraignment.
The British man, Stephen Clarke, was found guilty of abusing animals in 2010. He was jailed for 30 days and then he was deported.
