Tampa, Fl. police arrested Bernard Marsonek, 57, after one of the shocked neighbors called 911.
"When officers arrived on scene, they were greeted by a small crowd of residents who were disturbed by their neighbor's activity with the dog," a police spokesman told Fox13. "Several of the witnesses stated that they yelled at the suspect to stop, but he ignored their commands."
Police searched Marsonek's home, where they found a gun, ammunition, and eight pit bulls.
Marsonek, a convicted felon, faces charges of sex with animals, cruelty to animals, and illegal gun possession. He was released on $17,500 bond.
