BELLINGHAM, Wash. – A man accused of allowing men to have sex with animals at his Sumas farm in 2010 is locked up again.

Douglas Spink is on parole for smuggling cocaine.

He’s in the federal detention center in Seattle after Police say he violated the terms of his parole by having a dog with him at his Jefferson County home.

That dog is now at the Whatcom Humane Society.

The Peninsula Daily News reports Spink is also suspected of stealing a different dog that hasn’t been located yet.

Spink’s Whatcom County animal cruelty trial is scheduled to start next week.
