Legal custody of nine animals seized from an alleged bestiality farm in Sumas was awarded to the Whatcom Humane Society on Friday, June 18.
The animals at the center of the dispute, two stallions and seven male dogs, were seized April 14 from a property on 5074 Reese Hill Road belonging to Douglas Spink, who is the registered agent of Exitpoint Stallions Inc. The animals remained in the protective custody of the Whatcom Humane Society.
During the seizure April 14, federal agents arrested Spink as well as a British man, Stephen Clarke. On videotapes seized at the property, Clarke could be seen engaged in sexual acts with dogs Spink owned, and Spink allegedly was heard on the tapes calling the dogs by name and talking to Clarke.
The Whatcom Humane Society and Exitpoint Stallions Inc., which were both seeking custody of the animals, spent nearly eight hours in Whatcom County Superior Court Thursday, June 17, arguing their cases.

This creap was living in an old shack on a mountain ridge outside of Sumas Washington with no running water, dirt floors, seven big dogs and four horses.
The owner foreclosed on the proerty, the cabin and everything this creap owned that was in it was wiped clean, three computers were seized by the Feds, and all the animals were taken away from him.
Dot com millionaire to bum living in a shack in the woods with no running water, badabingggg!
Hearing details, definitely NSFW!! Some highlights from a very long but interesting blog-
Doug was known to be keeping several giant breed guard dogs on the property, so animal control was there initially to prevent the officers from shooting them in case Doug resisted or the dogs interfered.
What they were NOT prepared for was two naked men, and a videotape that defies description. Well, the judge called it “depraved and disgusting” but I’ve already told you about the tape in earlier blog.
It was during the search for other evidence related to Spink’s parole violation, that officers found the videotape of Stephen Clarke having sex with Spink’s dogs. Another warrant was issued and Clarke was arrested for animal cruelty.
For the next few hours, the attorneys went round and round trying to come to grips with whether there really WAS a entity called Exitpoint Stallions that was separate from Doug Spink, and if so did they in fact own the animals?
In front of me was Claire Spink with a bearded gentleman who turned out to have represented Doug in a “real estate matter.” See Doug … sorry, Exitpoint Stallions, had stopped making payments on the land where Doug was living, and the owner had foreclosed on the property as of April 23, 2010.
He BASE jumps and can run circles around any computer hacker, and set up a corporation in seconds it seems, complete with shareholders and officers and managers – as long as they are all him. Still, people give him money. Lots of money. But at least one person said that knowing Doug was like living the movie Pacific Heights.
But Judge Uhrig was onto this in a heartbeat. He asked Segoin, the attorney for the corporation Exitpoint Stallions, Who is the President? Vice President? Secretary? “I don’t know,” Segoin replied. “Doug Spink is the registered agent, but I have had no communication with him.” The Judge asked if there were other shareholders besides Doug’s mother, to which Segoin, the attorney for Exitpoint Stallions, replied “I don’t have that information.”
When Claire Spink took the stand, she said “I’m running the show now.” She explained that she was the largest shareholder of Exitpoint Stallions, but then went on to say that she didn’t know if there were any other shareholders or who they might be. When asked what she did for Exitpoint Stallions, she said “I’m the record keeper. I get copies of anything important. And whenever Doug or Paul Peterson want to buy a horse or a dog, they ask me about it.” Most of the records, which she kept in a box, were “empty certificates, pretty pieces of paper.” No, she didn’t have any Articles of Incorporation, or copies of licenses or minutes of meetings. And no, she couldn’t name any of the other shareholders because “some people consider a syndicate as gambling, so they won’t give their names.” And no, she didn’t know if there was a checking account. “I put the money in, and they spend it,” she said. “My role is to advise. I’m in charge of stories.” Indeed.
When Daugert asked her if she had ever seen any of the dogs she said no, but she had endless pictures. “They were the most spoiled dogs,” she said. One wonders what she considers spoiled.
He asked her about recent contact with Doug. “It’s hard for us to talk by phone,” she said. “We keep getting cut off. “ Sort of like tails on mice, one presumes.
Finally the Judge had heard enough. He started by saying that had animal cruelty charges been filed against Spink the whole matter would have been much simpler. But since Whatcom County prosecuting attorney has yet to step up to the plate, the Judge was compelled to rule as follows:
First he commented that Claire Spink’s answers to even the most direct questions were “remarkably uninformative,” but one thing was clear: the evidence was irrefutable that Doug Spink’s animals had been trained to perform unnatural sex acts and that Doug Spink had facilitated those acts.
He said he didn’t need to know the purpose or the mission of Exitpoint Stallions to make a decision, and that in fact he wondered if the name itself was some kind of crude joke. Further, he had heard no credible evidence of who was in charge of Exitpoint Stallions, nor had there been any proof of ownership of any of the animals presented. But regardless of whether Doug or Exitpoint Stallions owned any of them, the evidence was clear that they had been living in an unacceptably dangerous situation.
It was Judge Uhrig’s ruling, therefore, that the animals would be released to Whatcom Humane Society.
