[Ed. – His kingdom for a horse]
A 68-year-old Pennsylvania man was arrested Friday night by undercover sheriff’s deputies after he allegedly flew to Arizona to have sex with a horse.
Michael Crawford bought a round-trip ticket and arrived in Phoenix thinking the person who responded to an online ad he had posted was a horse owner.
The ad caught the attention of Maricopa County Sheriff‘s Office animal crimes detectives. They launched an investigation in October 2014 that eventually led to last week’s sting.
Detectives engaged Crawford in conversations online and over the phone.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said detectives learned Crawford has been sexually aroused by horses for years and has traveled extensively to find horse owners in various cities willing to allow him access to their animals.
