A dog owner says he will stand by a friend who he allegedly filmed having sex with his pregnant dog.
Kasper Carlton, 42, was appalled to discover home surveillance footage said to show Raymon McCloud, 19, sexually abusing his dog in Gloucester, Virginia.
But Carlton told Metro US he refuses to turn his back on the teen, who he claimed to have saved from a horrifically abusive childhood.
‘I still care about him a lot…but what he did was purely fucking disgusting,’ Carlton said.
Carlton explained how he set up surveillance cameras in his home to record while he was away. McCloud had been staying Carlton’s home and did not realize the cameras had been installed when the alleged animal abuse took place in late 2019.
‘I didn’t expect to see something like that…It surprised me. It scared the hell out of me,’ Carlton said, recalling the moment he reviewed the footage.
‘I never seen anything like that in my life.’
Carlton said he rescued McCloud from a traumatic home life when the alleged dog abuser was just 13.
He claimed McCloud had been given drugs and was abused in their dilapidated home, where the floorboards were ripped up to burn for heat in the winter.
But Carlton felt compelled to turn the alleged dog abuse video over to Gloucester Animal Control Department, despite his friendship with McCloud, who he said he hopes gets some help.
‘I set my whole life down and took care of somebody…,’ Carlton said.
‘I hope that what I did was correct. I just wish he would get some help.’
McCloud was arrested on February 10 for bestiality and animal abuse. He was then released on a $1,500 bond.
Carlton blamed McCloud’s alleged drug addiction and traumatic upbringing for his actions, which he claimed got worse once McCloud started heavily using drugs.
‘My friend got into crack and meth and everything changed. His whole personality changed,’ Carlton claimed.
Carlton is not the only person who claims to be affected by McCloud’s allegedly erratic, sexually-deviant behavior. McCloud is also solely responsible or scaring a couple so badly, they moved out of Gloucester never to return.
Sara Condrey and her husband were terrorized by McCloud for a week straight in February 2018. They did not know him and are unsure why he chose to target them. The terrifying incident left such a lasting impression on the couple that Condrey ended up writing a book about the harrowing ordeal, titled ‘Stalked,’ which was released this month.
The intrusions began when McCloud broke into the Condreys’ house by smashing a window while the couple was out. However, he ignored their valuable items and instead stole Mrs Condrey’s lingerie, underwear, and love letters between her and her husband, a veteran who spent 13 years in the Army, she told Metro US.
Condrey said McCloud did more than $2,500 in damage to their home after he forced his way in at least three times by breaking windows and doors.
She said McCloud rarely took money or objects of value and instead had a ‘clearly’ sexual motive.
At the time, her husband, who does not want to be named, wrote: ‘Every single time he broke into our home he bypassed nearly everything of value and went straight for our bedroom. I believe that he was fantasizing about my wife while touching her clothes and sitting in our bedroom.’

‘I am concerned that he will return and rape or kill my wife, hurt my dogs and attempt to injure myself. I request that this man be put away for the maximum sentence allowed by law and that he be added to the sex offender registry list,’ he said in an email to Gloucester County Senior Criminal Investigator Steve Perry.
McCloud was eventually caught thanks to a trail camera and alarm system installed by the Condreys.
Police responded and McCloud was arrested, but because he was 17 years old, a minor, at the time, he did not face any jail time. Instead, he was barred from returning to Condrey’s street, where she said he had been staying with friends. He was also given an ankle monitor.
Condrey was disappointed in the ruling and said she hoped that McCloud could have been put on the sex offenders’ register to help her feel safe again.
‘(The juvenile court) said it was because he had a bad home life, he was young, and it was not sexually motivated,’ she said.
Condrey said McCloud and his friends were seen in her neighborhood after he was ordered not to return. Eventually, she and her husband decided to leave town.
She was appalled to read of McCloud’s arrest for bestiality and stunned to discover he was back on the street after he was freed on bond.
‘This experience has been terrifying and while I tried to turn something horrible and ugly into something positive by writing the book, we couldn’t help but feel what happened to us was simply dismissed,’ Sara Condrey said.
