TULSA — While dog-sitting for his mother earlier this month, Bryan Whalen discovered video recordings of his mother and two other people engaging in sex acts with three dogs, according to an affidavit filed Monday in Tulsa County.
Authorities have charged Diane Whalen, 54, and Donald Roy Seigfried, 55, with crimes against nature, a felony that includes bestiality, said Capt. John Bowman of the Tulsa County sheriff's office. Seigfried was arrested and released Tuesday on $10,000 bail. Bowman said Whalen had not been arrested, but authorities were in contact with her lawyer. Bryan Whalen was feeding and taking care of his mother's dogs when he stumbled on the tapes June 1 and then turned them over to the sheriff's office, according to the affidavit. Diane Whalen was in the hospital at the time, according to the document. She had complained of possible food poisoning, but the illness turned out to be appendicitis, which required surgery, the court record says. Bryan Whalen said he and his girlfriend found the tapes in a storage case while he was looking for medications that his mother's doctor had requested, the affidavit says.
