When a Man Dies in a Sex Act with a Horse -- What's a Reporter to Do?

The AP story gave basic facts about the case. It mentioned 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. Therefore, Sullivan said, "We thought if there was more than one person participating in this, it needed to be reported." [...]

Although she never reported the man's name, in her second article Sullivan did say that he was 45 years old and added that he died of acute peritonitis due to the perforation of the colon. But because Washington is one of 17 states that does not outlaw bestiality, having sex with a horse is not a crime and his death will not be investigated. [...]

The two articles also have prompted a local senator to start drawing up a bill that would outlaw bestiality. Sullivan also reported the opinions of a local animal activist who also is calling for reform.

    In ancient rome, a common death penalty was "raped to death by giraffe".

    In her first probe, Sullivan wrote that the farm was discussed in Internet chat rooms as a "destination" spot for people looking to have sex with animals.

    We've been calling the place Horsefucker Farms ever since the story first appeared.

    NO! They cannot outlaw this... natural selection is a GOOD THING!

      I couldn't have said it better myself. Why can't we stop trying to protect people from themselves by making more laws? Oh, wait, maybe that senator was counting on a certain demographic for votes...

    I wonder if this will make the Daily Show?

    "Senior Bestiality Correspondant, Stephen Colbert"

    ... and the horse he rode in on.

    Heh, animal activist... I'd like to see them tackle this one.

    "Having sex with animals, uh, takes away... um... the animal's rights!"

    "What rights would that be?"

    "Well... I guess the right not to have sex. It's an important right!"

      Actually, I think the arguement is that children and animals can't consent. Otherwise, pretty much anything two (or more) consenting adults can think of is fine with me. It might not be my "thing", but hey, more power to you if you can think of something that's too kinky for my tastes. Whatever. Just leave kids and animals out of it.

      • lars_larsen says:

        You've obviously never been the victim of attempted-donkey-rape. Sometimes they consent and YOU dont.

        • phoenixredux says:

          Yes, that's true. I've never been raped by a donkey. Let's try to keep it that way, ok? :)

          I'm also willing to bet that it isn't difficult to get a thoroghbred (sp?) Stallion to screw you. The real question here is, how STUPID would you have to be to do that??

      • e_notimpl says:

        Given the mode of death, it's hard to imagine the horse didn't consent. It's a lot harder to force someone (something?) to pitch than catch...

        • phoenixredux says:

          I'll refer you back to my other comment, above.

        • duskwuff says:

          I have seen videos of the, ah, the pair in action, and the horse was quite enthusiastic. I will refrain from posting a link here, though. I imagine that there are some things that even JWZ cannot stomach.

          • gytterberg says:

            Only one way to find out.... I noticed nobody linked the octopus-emerging-from-vagina video from that "octopus appreciation community" a week or two ago either.

      • giantlaser says:

        A funny argument, given that it's pretty damn clear if a male animal consents or not.

        • phoenixredux says:

          In this case, consent aside, I think another good arguement against it is that FUCKING A HORSE CAN KILL YOU BY RUPTURING YOUR COLON. Morality and ethics aside, a ruptured colon can be pretty persuasive in its own right.

      • pavel_lishin says:

        That's a valid point, but I imagine that if a horse is putting its dick in your ass and thrusting hard enough to tear your rectum, I think that's signs of consent, really.

        • pavel_lishin says:

          Another thought: artificial insemination - same problem, right? They don't consent.

          • duskwuff says:

            Not to mention slaughtering food animals. It's okay to kill an animal and eat it, but it's not OK to let one have sex with you? Explain that one to me.

            • jwz says:

              Sheepskin condoms -- it's wrong to fuck a sheep, but if you kill it, take out its intestine, and fuck a human through the sheep, well then that's ok!

    He'll go down in history as someone who could really give an honest assessment of what it's like to have sex with a partner who was hung like a horse.

  9. ammonoid says:

    I suppose I shouldn't be surprised, but it kind of blows my mind that the farm was operated as a horsey brothel.

    I wondered why my travel agent asked if I wanted the "Farm Fun" package tour of Washington...
