— A volunteer and former employee of the Wake County Animal Center faces more than a half-dozen charges stemming from accusations that he committed crimes against nature involving dogs.

Seadon Collin Etienne Henrich, 21, of 6717 Steves Drive in Zebulon, was arrested Thursday on four counts of crime against nature and three counts of felony dissemination of obscenity.

According to arrest warrants, Henrich engaged in sex acts with the animals between May 2011 and November 2012 and posted photos of the acts on a website.

Henrich was jailed under a $70,000 bond.

Authorities said Henrich worked as a volunteer and at one point was an employee. The alleged crimes happened at the animal shelter, they said.

    This is really disgusting, but child molesters, most often, only get a short prison sentence, is any at all, and then are released back out on the street. This is why I don't think Henrich will receive the punishment he deserves.

    Why is this even newsworthy? Why would anybody be interested in this?

    If no one clicked on the article (including you) you may have a point there.

    That is so sick. This man certainly needs help.

    I'm stunned. In my 50 years on this planet I've never heard of something so messed up. This guy should go to a mental facility and remain there for life. Sickening. I though most of the place had security cameras both inside & out? How could this take place?

    Not only was he sick enough to do something like this, but was proud of it. SMH.

    "Thanks wral or sharing all today's glorious imperfections at my family dinner table. We'll stop having you on at dinner time from now on"- it's the NEWS!! What did you expect? Stories about flowers and bunnies? They report on murder, rape, suicide, robbery and any number of other horrible things on a daily basis- it's their JOB! Somehow THIS crosses the line with you? The murdered children, limbless victims of terror- none of THAT bothered you before, but THIS, this is "too much"? It's laughable. Maybe you should turn off the TV during dinner and talk to your children and family about what is going on in THEIR lives rather than live through the news cycle of other people's lives. Use that time as your own personal news hour and find out the news at home, when you see how good things are going in your own home, it will make it seem that much better when you hear of the horrible things going on around you.
