King County sheriff's office investigating possible animal abuse
Seattle Pi ^ | Thursday, July 14, 2005 | ASSOCIATED PRESS

Posted on 07/15/2005 8:14:06 AM PDT by Alexander Rubin

SEATTLE -- King County sheriff's detectives are investigating possible animal cruelty at a farm near Enumclaw that apparently has attracted "a significant number of people" to have sex with animals, a sheriff's spokesman said Thursday.

The investigation was launched this month after authorities discovered the July 2 death of a man who suffered internal bleeding after engaging in anal sex with a horse at the farm, Sgt. John Urquhart said.

Authorities are not releasing the man's identity because the King County medical examiner has ruled his death accidental. The victim was in his 40s, Urquhart said.

Investigators have interviewed several people in connection with the case, which was brought to authorities' attention after the man was dropped off at a hospital for medical treatment. A surveillance camera picked up the license plate of the car, which led sheriff's detectives to the farm and other people involved, Urquhart said.

Bestiality is not illegal in Washington state.

"Just sex with an animal per se, you'd have to prove some sort of animal cruelty out of that and that's why we've got more investigating to do," Urquhart said.

"A significant number of people, we believe, have likely visited this farm," he said, declining to specify a number while the investigation continues.

Faunaphilia is the proper term for it.

Latin. Fauna being animal, philia being love of. Just like pedophilia is love of the young. And yeah, it's sick.

That's what I thought at first too, but its kinda hard to believe. Maybe he was the "pitcher" and the horse kicked him?

EEEEWWWWWWW!!!!

"Just sex with an animal per se, you'd have to prove some sort of animal cruelty out of that and that's why we've got more investigating to do," Urquhart said.

How could it not be abuse of animals? Was the horse hitting on them? What are they going to do? Question the horse? 'Uh, Thunder, was is good for you? Were you coerced or forced against your wishes?' Puh-lease.

"A significant number of people, we believe, have likely visited this farm," he said, declining to specify a number while the investigation continues.

Let me guess, since it's Seattle, they all work at Starbucks, if at all? Cancelling my travel plans...

Yes, I know the language sources. But the move is on, I think, to relabel the act from "bestiality" (a well-known term that invokes revulsion almost universally) to "faunaphilia" (a term that is not well know and thus can be "marketed" differently).

Umm, I added the faunaphilia tag, Seattle Pi didn't. Apologies. Didn't mean to start a debate over it.

I just obsess over diction sometimes. Call it whatever you like, though, sex with animals is sick.

Moral Absolutes Ping.

I REALLLY, REALLY don't want to ping this to you. Don't read it if you're not in the mood to be utterly disgusted.

One of the worst things is that apparently the most they can be accused of is "animal cruelty". What about "having disgusting sex with animals" and then public caning?

It's getting beyond insane. If there are no moral absolutes, then everything previously considered immoral is now good, and the only "wrong" is to adhere to said moral absolutes.

So, dear friends, WE are the bad ones now.

Freepmail me if you want on/off this pinglist.

Note: Public pain and public shame. It's the only suitable punishment for crimes like this.

Aw, Hell! Now I wish I hadn't read the replies. I figured the horse just got angry and kicked the fellow. It never occured to me that the delicately-phrased "internal injuries" could have happened some other way.

I don't think he was on the receiving end. I have spent a lot of time with stallions and I can't think of anything that would induce a stallion to mate with a human. I can't even envision any way to introduce a stallion's penis into a man's rectum.

It's much more likely that he was trying to do a mare and she kicked him. Mares do that. They will often kick the poop out of a stallion who approaches them. Hence, at a serious breeding farm the mares have to be hobbled and restrained to keep them from kicking a valuable breeding stallion. Likely this jerk climbed up on a stepladder behind the mare and she put a pair of hooves into his midsection. That can kill quite easily.

You wrote: "I can't think of anything that would induce a stallion to mate with a human."

Maybe if you have any veterinary or zoological training/knowledge/experience you can confirm this for me:

I am under the impression that all mammalian males are quite dependent on female pheromones (in females of their own species) for successful mating. In other words, if the pheromones are not there is sufficient concentration, the male may possibly attempt to mount, but cannot penetrate and cannot ejaculate.

This would suggest that male mammals (1) do not mate with females of significantly divergent species (2)can not mate with other males (so-called animal homosexuality) and (3) rarely or never successfully mate with a female that is not sexually mature and in estrus.

When I say "successfully mate" I mean a completed act of coitus: erection, mounting, penetration, deposit of semen.

Homo sapiens is probably the only exception to this pattern, because our mating is more conditioned on social and psyhological factors, and our minds and wills can dominate our raw instincts.

Is this accurate?

Accidental? What the heck? Engaging in anal sex with a horse couldn't possibly happen by accident.

That's one sick SOB. Sadly, it sounds as though there are all too many like minded freaks about.

Is this accurate?

Not exactly. Higher mammals' sexual responses can be classically conditioned with a little effort. Boars, and bulls will mate with an artificial vagina in order to produce semen for artificial insemination. Stallions are kind of sensitive and usually want to go through a courtship ritual, but they can produce for a non-equine as well. They do have to get into the right position to function. Bulls and boars can sometimes be masturbated by humans to produce semen, and the boars will get very fond of the human who does this for them. (And you thought your job was bad!)

Speaking here as a former farm girl who has bred horses. NO familiarity whatsoever with sheep or goats.

I don't put anything past them. I'm just thinking about the many years of experience I've had at handling stallions. It would certainly be a good way to get killed, but the killing would not likely be from having one's internal organs ruptured by a horse penis. It would be from some of the other consequences of tangling with a thousand-pound animal who does not have a clue about his own vast strength. It's astonishing how easy it is for even a well-meaning horse to kill a human.

terrible subject, but there is more info from the same source:
"The dead man was identified as a 45-year-old Seattle resident. According to the King County Medical Examiner's Office, he died of acute peritonitis due to perforation of the colon."
Also:
"The Seattle man's relatives said yesterday they never suspected he was involved in bestiality. They said they were surprised when they learned he had purchased a Thoroughbred stallion earlier this year. The man told his relatives he boarded the animal with some friends in Enumclaw."
