Douglas Bryan Spink is perhaps the most ardent zoophilia defender and practitioner in modern history. He is best known for his criminal exploits that manage to mix a sense of surreal absurdity, comedic stupidity and horrifying deviancy. Despite this, he still desires to be the leading voice of the zoophile movement, and personally make sure the world is accepting of his romance towards our "four-legged" friends. Here are the tales of the man whose history somehow contains millions worth of drugs, a few racing horses, heightened autism and an egomaniac-fueled need of being the center of attention.
The story of Doug starts relatively slow. His presence on the internet was particularly tame, being active in a few forums centered around Base Jumping under the name d-d0g. Before any of this happened, he was relatively successful in life. His school life went relatively well, as he earned a MBA from the University of Chicago and a B.A. in cultural anthropology from Reed College. He then went on to be an investor for a few companies, which netted him a good amount of cash at the time.
Spink however tried starting a lawsuit against former employees, which he lost pretty badly, having to pay out million of dollars because of his stupidity. This caused him to file for bankruptcy in 2002, now in debt of a few million dollars.Douglas B. Spink, Chief Executive Officer: Mr. Spink is the founder of

Having lost all his fortune, he goes to Canada and meets a certain Corinne Super, who he claims recruited him to "her" drug smuggling business in 2003. Keep her name in the back of your mind, as she comes back later.From time to time, the Company is a party to litigation, which arises, in the normal course of business. There is no litigation pending, or threatened that, if determined adversely, would have a material effect upon the business or financial condition of the company.
On March 26, 2001 we commenced legal action against Mr. Kit Kung, Hung Yun and Alan Jurewicz, each of who were former officers and/or directors of the Company and Easi-Link.com, Inc. The complaint alleges that the defendants converted our property and assets, stole corporate opportunities, breached their fiduciary duty to the Company and breached their employment contracts. The action is pending in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Law Division, Bergen County. We continue to review company documents and based upon the results of our review and discovery requests, we may expand our lawsuit to include other parties.

[...]Kit Kung, a New Jersey businessman who won a $5.7 million judgment against Spink and his companies in the messy wake of a takeover struggle a few years ago. Kung and his partners never collected the judgment.
This nets him a hefty sum of money, but this success-story ends abruptly as he gets arrested in 2005 near the Canadian border, as he tried to get $34 million worth of cocaine to Washington.[Douglas Spink, talking about Corinne Super] Her background, of course, is in the drug business. Corinne Super has made her living from the drug business since she was a teenager. How would I know this? Well… she recruited me into that business when I met her in Canada in late 2003. I ended up proposing marriage to her, and were were engaged for several years. Bad idea. And for the record, though she recruited me into the business it was my choice to do so – I take full responsibility for that.
On top of smuggling drugs, he is a consumer himself. Back in 2004, he made a profile on BlueLight.org under the name Fausty, which is one of the biggest forum dedicated to the "discussion of controlled drugs". Not only was he a user there, but a moderator as well. In there, he freely describes his love for drugs.Alleged cocaine smuggler led tumultuous life
Douglas B. Spink once mesmerized the business netherworld in Portland, Ore., with contentious high-risk deals and a penchant for death-defying sports.
His pastime of leaping from bridges, cliffs and radio towers “is the absolute extreme self-reliance in my mind,” he once wrote in an e-mail to The Oregonian. “There’s nobody there but you, and if you don’t do everything right you WILL die. No second chances.”
Last week, the Reed College graduate’s luck, in a sense, ran out when federal agents captured him near the Canadian border, allegedly smuggling what federal agents estimate to be more than $34 million of cocaine into Washington.
Spink, who will be 34 next week, finds himself in a federal detention center at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, indicted by a federal grand jury on a charge of possessing more than five kilograms of cocaine with intent to distribute. He faces 10 years to life in prison if convicted.
The arrest is the latest – and most serious – chapter in Spink’s colorful history of penny-stock corporate takeovers, angry creditors and shareholders, fraud judgments, millions of dollars in unpaid debts and a personal bankruptcy still pending three years later, The Oregonian wrote in a copyrighted story.
Spink, the accused drug dealer, forms a picture far removed from Doug Spink, the child of Pennsylvania privilege who attended a private academy, went fox hunting with his father, played squash and rode in elegant horse competitions. He earned an MBA and, like his father, became a mergers-and-acquisitions man, buying and selling companies.
But Spink, who suffers from a mild form of autism known as Asperger syndrome, left a trail of bad blood and lost fortunes – his and others.
And in the past two years, his own emotional world has spiraled downward after the death of his best friend in a skydiving accident.
“He’s owed a lot of people a lot of money,” said Erika Helgesson, Spink’s former executive assistant at defunct Worldmodal Network Services. Helgesson said Spink owes her $30,000 for seven months’ pay.
Spink’s enemies exulted at the news of his arrest.
“That’s wonderful,” said one, Kit Kung, a New Jersey businessman who won a $5.7 million judgment against Spink and his companies in the messy wake of a takeover struggle a few years ago. Kung and his partners never collected the judgment.
Even Spink’s mother, Claire Spink of Harmony, Pa., is a creditor – to the tune of $80,000.
“At least,” she emphasized.
Spink listed her as a creditor when he and his estranged wife, Judy Spink, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2002. Claire Spink said her money went, among other things, to finance Spink’s MBA education at the University of Chicago and to buy expensive horses.
“I’m just stunned and obviously brokenhearted,” said Claire Spink, who noted that she and her son have not talked in four years.
Family, friends in dark
In recent months, Spink’s whereabouts have been a mystery not only to his family, but also to his creditors and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Portland, Ore.
Spink’s father, Jack Spink, said he has spent the past 2 months trying to locate his son, who canceled plans to visit the elder Spink during the year-end holidays.
“I’m completely in the dark,” said Jack Spink, a Pennsylvania businessman who learned of his son’s arrest from a reporter. He and Claire Spink are divorced.
The last time Jack Spink saw his son was in 2003, when he traveled to Calgary, Alberta, to see Douglas compete in an international horse-jumping competition.
Last April, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Randall L. Dunn ordered Matthew Slayton, Douglas Spink’s stepson, to produce documents related to the whereabouts of his stepfather. The public record doesn’t indicate whether Slayton complied, and M. Vivienne Popperl, attorney for the U.S. Trustee’s office in Portland, declined to say.
According to acquaintances, Douglas Spink left Oregon for British Columbia sometime after his bankruptcy, which still is pending in Oregon. In Canada, Spink has devoted himself to breeding the German Holsteiner show-jumping horses he bought while living in Oregon.
Helgesson, Spink’s former assistant, said Spink was in Portland as recently as two weeks ago, visiting Paul R. Peterson, a friend and former business partner.
At the time, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were extremely interested in Spink’s whereabouts.
Agents begin investigation
A month before, in January, U.S. Border Patrol agents had run into Spink in the Loomis National Forest, 10 miles from the Canadian border, along a route known for clandestine narcotics smuggling. Spink “acted very nervous,” according to a deposition by Chad Boucher, an immigration special agent. Spink said he was there for recreation, Boucher testified.
Afterward, federal agents began to track Spink’s various travels in his 1996 Chevrolet Tahoe. He crossed the border from Canada five times in February.
On the evening of Feb. 28, Spink crossed for what turned out to be the last time.
After he came through the Sumas port of entry, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents followed him to Everett. There, he met an unidentified person driving a truck that the agents associated with a known narcotics-smuggling operation.
At 7:40 p.m., the driver of the truck unloaded four large suitcases and one small suitcase. Spink, Boucher said, loaded the suitcases into the back of his sport utility vehicle. He pulled out onto Highway 2, heading east to Monroe.
Alerted by the federal agents, Monroe police stopped Spink for driving 5 mph over the speed limit. A drug-sniffing dog detected the drugs. After obtaining a search warrant, the police found the suitcases.
They were filled with cocaine weighing more than 372 pounds.
For Spink, who remains officially bankrupt, the alleged $34 million drug fortune was short-lived. A federal judge appointed a public defender because Spink could not afford a lawyer.
“We certainly had a happy childhood,” said his mother. “It’s a terrible waste of potential.”
The Legendary Tale of Fausty
Soon enough though, the username Fausty would gather a name for itself, for something far worse than just a guy addicted to extreme sports and psychotropic drugs. Indeed, Fausty became a sort of living legend on BlueLight for the simple reason that Spink used to openly talk about the fact he REALLY loves animals in there.
The legend of Fausty didn't start there however, as he made quite an unsavory series of posts on BeastForum back in 2004, full with descriptions and photos. To save you the trouble of filling your history with disturbing content, I will post a few of his own descriptions without the photos for your curious eyes as well as his profile in there. This goes without saying that this is gross. You have been warned.
This would be enough reason for him to make sure that Fausty isn't tied to his name in any way shape or form, but through one of his biggest surges of idiocy, he made sure to confirm that this was him by adding that username when signing his profile posts on a forum dedicated to climbers. With the exact same avatar. Go figure.
This goes to show that, for some reason, Spink likes to make sure that everyone he comes across knows that he loves animals, so much in fact that he made a website for that username, fausty.org, which doesn't exist anymore. In there, he likes talking openly about the fact that he is a zoophile, spreading the legend of Fausty even further.
Spink genuinely thinks he isn't doing any harm, and will try to convince you of that fact, one monologue at a time.
