Douglas Spink, Accused Zoophile, Wasn't Shy About "Love" for Animals on His Twitter Account

Investigators raiding Spink's farm said they found mice with their tails chopped off, covered in lube.
Convicted drug smuggler Douglas Spink claims the rumors about him just aren't true. The 39-year-old horse breeder and former dot.com millionaire arrested last week for allegedly running a bestiality farm says he's faced accusations of animal abuse before.

On the website for his Exitpoint Stallions farm, Spink writes (warning: PDF) that his problems began in the mid-90s, when an anonymous man began spreading rumors that he was running an "animal sex porn website." Spink claims he eventually hired a private investigator who found the online "troll" in a "run-down trailer in the midwest," but won't provide his identity in order to "honor his right to ... go forward without hate."

Interesting. What's more interesting, however, is that Spink, for all his talk of anonymous trolls spreading vicious lies about him on the internet, brought this recent attention on himself because he reached out to notorious Enumclaw horse diddler James Tait, currently serving time in Tennessee.

And, if you want to get technical about it, Spink has already outed himself as a "zoo" on his Twitter account.

Going by the handle DrFausty, Spink describes himself in his bio as a "catalyst, dissident, researcher, zoophile, showjumper, hacker, retired Earth First!er."

His background photo is a picture of his two dogs, a rottweiler and German shepherd. Quite possibly the same German shepherd that arresting officers said Spink was "strangely protective of" when they busted him for having 371 pounds of cocaine in his SUV in 2005.

(The arresting officers apparently also say that Spink had a man-animal-love bumper sticker on his car. But we can forgive them for not thinking much of this at the time, considering that they'd just caught enough yay to keep Seattle sniffling for a month.)

Spink's Twitter feed is just like anyone else's: a combination of links to articles he likes, allusions to difficult times in his life and shout-outs to friends.

It was last updated on April 8, sometime before his farm was raided. But a review of his earlier Tweets finds some interesting cud to chew on.

On multiple occasions, Spink references his zoo lifestyle. In one Tweet, linking to his thoughts on "anti-zoophile witchunts" and in another linking to a "discussion on the topic of 'zoo exclusivity."

(Any and all links to the forums Spink hosted are dead now. As is his website, dougspink.net.)

Spink has Tweeted nearly 7,000 times. So those two are certainly not representative of everything he wrote about.

(More representative might be the fact that Spink's Netflix account predicted he'd give Lars von Trier's "Antichrist" -- a movie that even the Danish director's defenders admit is fiercely misogynistic -- a 4.5 rating. Spink gave it a 5. Yikes.)

Still, Spink's self-identification directly contradicts the claims he makes in his manifesto. Wonder if any of this will ever be brought up should he have his day in court.
