A farmer in Herkimer County, N.Y. couldn’t figure out why his cows seemed more anxious than usual. When they weren’t producing as much milk as usual, he set up a surveillance camera.What he saw shocked him: two men were rolling in the hay with his livestock. The farmer contacted authorities who conducted their own investigation. As a result, Michael Jones, 35, and Reid Fontaine, 31, were arrested for misdemeanor sexual misconduct. Authorities said Fontaine attempted to have sex with several cows while Fontaine filmed the encounters. The two were released on an appearance ticket.
The suspects will not be the first men accused of having sex with cows. In 2008, Brazilian cleaner Getulino Ferreira Paraizo was accused of having sex with 400 cows. He said he preferred the more tranquil animals. It has also been discovered through study that men who have had sex with animals were twice as likely to developpenile cancer as those who stick with their own kind.
