A dog shelter worker is alleged to have had sex with the animals he's kept.

Jonathan Ford, 32, has been arrested on suspicion of bestiality by the Pope County Sheriff's Department and Annette Williams, a worker at a shop near I Love Lucy Pet Rescue, said the news was particularly distressing because the area has a high number of stray dogs.

She told LocalMemphis.com: "They have issues to begin with and to think that someone would show them kindness for a little bit and mistreat them again, that's more than I can think of."
