A man was arrested on charges of animal abuse after he allegedly raped his dog, police in West Virginia said.

Kanawha County Police said that they arrested 47-year-old Jonnie Boggess of Miami, after an animal rights group filed a complaint with police on behalf of the dog named Piglet.

Boggess was arrested on Wednesday, and charged with animal cruelty. Boggess admitted to investigators that he had sex with the animal in front of his girlfriend.

Boggess said that he drank alcohol before sleeping with his dog. “I was gentle with Piglet,” the suspect said. “When I was done with it, I patted the dog on its back and said ‘I love you,’” the suspect added.

Boggess said that he thought it was fine to have sex with his dog because it was over 40 pounds. The dog has been removed from the house.

Boggess was booked into jail, and was released after posting $5,000 bail.
