Man Dies Fucking A Horse.

I saw this on bookslut, but the details were pretty much what I have in the title. It failed to mention, for example, that "that the man -- who died of internal bleeding from anal sex with the animal -- died after visiting a farm in nearby Enumclaw that attracted "a significant number of people" looking to engage in bestiality."

A farm for bestiality. Yes. Naturally. Nothing's more normal out in rural life, of course. By the way, shockingly, the internet is involved: "The farm was discussed in Internet chat rooms as a "destination" spot for people looking to have sex with animals. She [Sullivan] reported that this prompted an investigation into whether the chickens, goats and sheep on the property had also been victimized."

"When they searched the farm, police had found hundreds of hours of videotape showing men having sex with horses. Police are still making sure that sex was not forced on the smaller, weaker animals, thus constituting animal cruelty (which is a crime). Investigators are also checking to see if other crimes like child abuse or rape occurred on the premises."

Clearly, being a cop without this fetish today, sucks.

But the best bit in this article, is this, where apparently "Washington is one of 17 states that does not outlaw bestiality, [so] having sex with a horse is not a crime and his death will not be investigated."

Full thing here.

Edit: mariness listed the link to the wikipedia entry for Zoophilia, which is really kinda fascinating. It's legal in the ACT, did you know? Check it.

Washington is one of 17 states that does not outlaw bestiality

Why does that not surprise me, in a state - and country - where every man, woman and child is repeatedly sodomised by both donkeys and elephants?

it's terribly shocking, isn't it? gay marriage is totally outlawed, but if you want to fuck a horse, you're all good.

And yet we have been repeatedly told that one excellent reason for outlawing gay marriage is that if you allow gays to marry, people might, gasp -- marry animals next!

Although, based on this article, that argument may have a point...

i don't think homosexuality (or even homosexuals marrying) has any real link to horse fucking. though you could probably argue that, there's always been horse fucking, there always will be.

Oh, not that there's any actual link, but until this article, I really didn't think that anyone in the U.S. really wanted to marry a horse, and now, I'll admit that my assumption may be arguable.

yeah, that's true. i mean, i guess there are some. i followed your wikipedia link and, really, am i just small minded in my approach here? i try to be open and non judgemental, but... well, animal fucking? it just doesn't seem right.

And what about this little nugget from wikpipedia? "The activity or desire itself is no longer classified as a pathology under DSM-IV (TR) (the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association) unless accompanied by distress or interference with normal functioning on the part of the person."

I may not be a psychologist, but I would say if you die with a horse schlong up your ass, you're crazy and you got a problem.

Er more incredulousness really that it's not classified as a disorder. I mean, the guy was "normal" before he died doing it but since he died doing it interfered with his life so now he would be treated by a psychiatrist? Put that up on a pedestal and examine it from all angles. Made my brain twist up in knots, it did.

It isn't right.

a) It's another fucking species, for god's sake. Evolutionarily, not supposed to happen.

b) By definitaion, the animal cannot verbally consent to this sort of thing, which means it's nonconsensual, which means it's rape. Ergo, wrong.

c) It's yucky.

d) Apparently, at least according to this article, it will also kill you.

e) Did I mention, yuck?

So, yeah, wrong.

So...it's not the fucking of animals that's wrong... just the fucking of animals that are smaller than you? that's an interesting place to draw the line...

so a chicken fucker is a pervert, but a horse fucker can be a respectable member of the community...

Yeah, that division really spoke to me, too.

Maybe bigger, stronger animals are just renowned for being hornier. Or more sexually attracted to people. That's probably it.

I think it's just that they figure a horse or a cow won't be harmed in the... activity whereas a puppy, chicken or rabbit's little insides might totally explode.

I'm sorry, I'm really an open minded person but whatever happened to good old masturbation? Just spread a picture of a race horse and um, go to town. No harm, no foul, no perforated colon.

you know, i'm fairly open minded. i admit, hey, maybe you can find some animals who do like it... but, until an animal can stand up and say that to me in english, i'm just not going to think it's right.

what really baffles me however, is that people'd rather horse fucking than gay marriage. that i don't get.

I think they have some nerve saying the animal wants it as much as them. I mean really, can you think about how unattractive a human must look and smell to a horse? And I'm sorry, I don't think it's about a "deep caring" for the animal, I think it's about getting off.

At least my state is consistent--we don't want the gays marrying and we don't want fauna or domesticated animals fucked with.

well, you know, me and my opinion on this are pretty much sitting in the 'this is kinda fucked up' bin. i don't find any kind of animal sexy, so i can't imagine any animal thinking that about me. it just all seems out of my understanding.

thankfully.

I didn't think the animal was thinking about you--but I do think it was thinking about the guy who... oh never mind. :-D

And it sounded like from the article this guy had a wife. Can you imagine? Another woman is bad enough but a horse bought on the side, kept at a bestiality ranch? Well, that's just gotta add insult to injury.

I like the definition of horses as "Smaller, weaker animals." The 1/4 tonne horse my daughter owns qualifies, I'm sure, especially the other week when it threw Erin's grandmother and broke her collarbone.

Maybe he was upset she wasn't trying to fuck him.......

i don't think the horses were the smaller weaker ones. i think they meant, you know, chickens. do you have a chicken you can share round with your family, lee?

;)

i wonder why it's legal in the ACT. i wonder what else is legal there. the little corrupt heart of australia.

"that the man -- who died of internal bleeding from anal sex with the animal"

He did what? I had to read this post twice before I realised that it was the man that died and not the animal. Ach y fi, that's a Cloud 13 situation if ever I read one. Cloud 13, BTW, is the special place in the afterlife reserved for people who died by stupid means, you know the sort of person that puts the metal knife in the toaster without unplugging it first. Mr Tanuja and I first heard about Cloud 13 from an American comedian who was playing at a small venue in Edinburgh at the Fringe festival ca 1995. We've never heard of him since, but we've both remembered Cloud 13.

That would be the famous rumour about Catherine the Great of Russia. Nothing more than a rumour, though she did have a great many (human) lovers.

I've been asked by another lj friend what "ach y fi" means, and I realised that I've been using a fairly common Welsh comment for something disgusing or distateful, there isn't really an English equivalent that conveys the feeling so succinctly. Unfortunately, Welsh is not that common a language, so apologies for using a foreign language without translating first.

Another interesting thing in that Wikipedia article is the existence of Jervis Bay Territory, mentioned alongside the ACT.
