    TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A Spanaway man accused of having sex with a dog is apparently the first person in the Washington charged under a new bestiality law.

    Pierce County prosecutors say 26-year-old Michael Patrick McPhail was caught by his wife on Wednesday night having intercourse on the back porch with their four-year-old female pit bull terrier.

    The wife took photos with a cell phone and called police.

    Pierce County sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer says "There's pretty clear proof what happened to this dog."

    McPhail was arrested that night. He is held on 300-thousand dollars bail and is reportedly on suicide watch in the jail in Tacoma.

    Charged with animal cruelty, he could be sentenced to a year in jail if convicted.

    The bestiality law took effect in June. It was prompted by an incident in Enumclaw where a man died after having sex with a horse.

    Enumclaw-area animal-sex case investigated

    King County sheriff's detectives are investigating the owners of an Enumclaw-area farm after a Seattle man died from injuries sustained while having sex with a horse boarded on the property.

    Investigators first learned of the farm after the man died at Enumclaw Community Hospital July 2. The county Medical Examiner's Office ruled that the death was accidental and the result of having sex with a horse.

    A surveillance camera picked up the license plate of the car that dropped the man off at the hospital, which led detectives to the farm and other people involved, said sheriff's Sgt. John Urquhart.

    Deputies don't believe a crime occurred because bestiality is not illegal in Washington state and the horse was uninjured, said Urquhart.

    But because investigators found chickens, goats and sheep on the property, they are looking into whether animal cruelty — which is a crime — was committed by having sex with these smaller, weaker animals, he said.

    The farm was talked about in Internet chat rooms as a destination for people looking to have sex with livestock, he said.

    "A significant number of people, we believe, have likely visited this farm," said Urquhart.

    The Humane Society of the United States intends to use the case during the next state legislative session as an example of why sex with animals should be outlawed in Washington, said BOB Reder, a Humane Society regional director in Seattle.

    "This and a few other cases that we have will allow us a platform to talk about sex abuse of animals," Reder said.

    Thirty-three states ban sex with animals, he said.

    Susan Michaels, co-founder of local animal-rights organization Pasado's Safe Haven, said she has been fighting to have bestiality made illegal. "It's animal cruelty behind closed doors," Michaels said.

    Man Dies In Bizarre Case Of Bestiality
    very disturbing story as a Seattle man has died following a bizarre case of bestiality.

    Detectives are investigating the possibility an Enumclaw farm was the base for a ring that abuses animals for sex. And what they've done is not illegal in Washington State.
    In a picture-perfect corner of rural King County, Sheriff's investigators uncovered a dirty little mess: Men having sex with animals at a small farm outside of Enumclaw.
    The private gatherings became public when a 45-year-old Seattle man died after having sex with an Arabian stallion.
    The medical examiner says the death is accidental.
    "If this pans out, it's the most egregious case that we've heard of," says Sgt. John Urquhart with the King County Sheriff's Office. "We don't have deaths that result from this activity, nobody can remember when anything like this has ever happened."
    Investigators believe this farm may have become a hot spot for sex with animals, with people learning about it through Internet chat rooms. They don't know how long it's been going on, although the man at the center has rented the farm for about six years.
    Investigators also don't know if the sex is in exchange for money.
    "I think it's most likely just given the nature of this type of activity," says Urquhart, "but we don't know for sure."
    Investigators don't know yet how many animals were used in this way. One thing they do know for certain: the incident with the horse where the man died happened in someone else's barn.
    They know that because the entire incident was caught on videotape, one of more than 100 tapes police took from the farm.
    The neighbors had no idea their barn and horses were being used for sex. They don't want their names, or faces or property shown, they told me they are freaked out and repulsed by what investigators say happened.
    However, having sex with animals is not against the law in Washington State. he Humane Society of the U.S. says it should be and talks about other cases.
    "Smaller animals have been seriously injured and/or killed," says Regional Director BOB Reder. "Or, after the act, disposed of by horrible means."
    While the Sheriff's office investigates any grounds for animal cruelty charges, for the moment, the animals are still at the farm. At least 30 state have laws outlawing bestiality. The Humane Society, together with Pasado's Save Have are both beginning campaigns to make it against the law in Washington as well.

    Senator sponsors ban on bestiality at group's urging
    OLYMPIA — People who have sex with animals should face a felony conviction for animal cruelty, says a Republican senator pushing for a ban on bestiality.
    Sen. Pam Roach, an Auburn-area Republican, is sponsoring the bill, which was prompted by a widely publicized case in which a man died of injuries suffered while having sex with a horse. The measure was aired Tuesday in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
    Washington is one of 14 states where bestiality is not explicitly prohibited, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
    "Our laws are lacking in this area," Roach said. "People are coming from out of state to do this here. We don't need to have a mecca here for abusing animals."
    A Seattle man died in July after suffering a perforated colon while having sex with a horse at a farm near Enumclaw.
    Authorities said the man was pronounced dead soon after companions dropped him off at a hospital. The Seattle Times is not identifying him to protect family privacy.
    Prosecutors were unable to charge anyone with animal cruelty, but James Michael Tait, 54, of Enumclaw, pleaded guilty to trespassing for unlawfully entering the barn during the incident.
    Authorities said Tait videotaped the act. He received a one-year suspended sentence, a $300 fine and community service.
    Roach's proposal would make bestiality a Class C felony, which is punishable by a maximum five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
    Offenders might also be restricted from owning animals and could be placed into counseling. Anyone videotaping such acts also could be convicted under animal-cruelty laws.
    Studies have shown a strong link between sex with animals and pedophilia, King County Deputy Prosecutor Daniel Satterberg said. "It would be wrong to look at this as an animal-welfare bill," he said. "It's the kind of conduct that can escalate to where the offender can become a threat to public safety."
    Animal-rights groups around the state, the Washington Farm Bureau, Washington State Grange and state veterinarians also have backed the bill. Nobody testified against it Tuesday.
    Pasado's Safe Haven, an animal-welfare group based in Sultan, first approached Roach for the legislation. The veteran lawmaker, who owns goats on her family farm, immediately adopted the issue.
    Susan Michaels, co-founder of Pasado's Safe Haven, an animal sanctuary near Monroe, said her organization receives a few calls each year about animal sexual abuse.
    Michaels said animals can be hurt or killed or can transmit diseases during the acts.
