"Man convicted of molesting a dead deer and shooting horse to have sex with it 'assaulted female cop after shoplifting from Walmart.'"

Now, there's a headline! And it happened in Wisconsin. In the aptly named city of Superior.

There's an AllieOop joke in there somewhere,...

Lava said...

Hate to say it, but after driving through Superior many times on our way to the North Shore...this story does not surprise me in the least.

ALH said...

Nice to see that Althouse has a "bestiality" tag.

Wisconsin nearly tops Missouri in its weirdness.

Think about this the next time you stop for roadkill, garage.

Where is PETA when you really need them?

Hell, I was wondering if the perp was Garage. But the perp is too young and skinny to be Garage.

Palladian said...

They shoot and fuck horses, don't they?

I was wondering what they did when it wasn't cow-tipping season.

No, that's shiloh.

Well, Wisconsin is already home to the Grunke brothers . . . Is Titus a cheesehead as well?

The deer thing is is private business. He and the deer should be allowed as much happiness as they can find together. They should be allowed to marry just like any other couple. Where you find love doesn't matter. Only love matters.

"The deer thing is is private business. He and the deer should be allowed as much happiness as they can find together. They should be allowed to marry just like any other couple. Where you find love doesn't matter. Only love matters."

The deer was dead. And he shot and killed a horse to have sex with it. It's the bestiality subcategory to necrophilia.

Ann Althouse said...

You might want to make a distinction between the roadkill deer and shooting the horse.

chuckR said...

Well he certainly has a different view of animal husbandry than anybody I know.

Mary Beth said...

That story made me think of the video Thanks, Smokey!.

Broomhandle said...

Seriously, how does he explain this to his wife or parents or whatever? Another example of the unchecked loner sinking deeper into weirdness.

chuckR said...

And he didn't kill the cop and it was only assault-assault.

So there's that.

chuckR said...

In Nicholas Wade's Before the Dawn, The Deep History of Humanity, he makes a distinction between anatomically modern humans and the later advent of socially modern humans. This guy isn't a socially modern human.

Rabel said...

People are so judgmental. We all have or little peccadilloes.

Chuck66 said...

I lived for 8 years in Superior and can confirm that the town has a large amount of "eccentrics".

But it is a fine place anyway.

A couple of years ago on a trip back, I stopped at WalMart. First thing I see in the parking lot is a very heavyset guy on a scooter, adorned with American and Packer flags, blasting polka tunes on his boom box. Ahhhh, to be back home.

Irene said...

Hathaway's lawyer (unsucessfully) had argued that sex with a dead deer doesn't meet the definition of "bestiality" because the animal was dead.

Chuck66 said...

But what is worse, having sex with a dead horse, or what a Democat state legislator did in Duluth 2 weeks ago? Trolled for boys on Craigs list, and banged a school boy in the Thompson Hill rest stop.

Scary part about this....Duluth police said having sex with school boys in public rest stops is not illegal in Duluth.

EDH said...

Sounds like he watched "Freddy Got Fingered" too many times.

"Get inside the animals."

"I want to try the horsey... I want to try the horsey!"

AllenS said...

I wouldn't be surprised that alcohol was involved. Superior is a Democratic stronghold, if that means anything.

Kirk Parker said...

WHAT IS WITH YOU PEOPLE IN WISCONSIN???

B said...

Hope he's not a catch and release fisherman.

Paddy O said...

deer
horse
pig

(oh come on, the joke had to be made by someone)

AllenS said...

I've owned a lot of horses, and still have one. I've never had the urge.

EMD said...

You know, you needn't blog everything, madame.

AllenS said...

Come to think of it, I've never had the urge to penetrate a young woman with a cigar, either. There's a lot of kinky people out there.

Pogo said...

You buncha haters.

He should be able to marry the dead deer AND the dead horse, and your opposing it is just hate hate hate.

</AndyR hat off

Rabel said...

News you can use from the court decision on the deer:

"He rather convincingly contends that animal means a living creature," Judge Gregory Peterson wrote. "However, Peterson pled no contest to the charge. A plea of guilty or no contest waives all nonjurisdictional defects and defenses."

So according to the judge it wasn't beastiality-beastiality.

TosaGuy said...

Superior does vote democrat.

Joe Schmoe said...

Pogo, I only hope the dead deer was entitled to the appropriate contraception beforehand. Republicans would deny the deer that right, you know.

Titus said...

As someone who was born and raised in Wisconsin...it is really fucking horrible.

I ran out of the state when I was 17.

But I do enjoy visiting the horribleness. It is good for a laugh.

Titus said...

And the people in Wisconsin are really truly fat.

You can not swing a cat without hitting a fatty in Wisconsin.

I deteste seeing fat people. It is just gross and fat. They deep fry fucking everything. And some of them have children which means someone fucks them which is even grosser.

Fatty's.

Titus said...

Lastly, the fatness crosses political boundaries.

The fats are republicans and democrats in Wisconsin. They don't give a shit, they still eat the all you can eat beer battered fish fry....with slaw.

T J Sawyer said...

Thank god it's just Hathaway again. I was afraid we were starting to see a trend up here in Douglas County.

exhelodrvr1 said...

Maybe the horse wanted to die.

NorthOfTheOneOhOne said...

Wow! The entire state of Mississippi is laughing hysterically and pointing northwards!


Plus, I'm stunned there's actually a Wal-Mart in Wisconsin.


B said...

The horse never should have answered that craigslist ad.

Iuconnu said...

I made the distinction by not including the horse.

LakeLevel said...

There once was a girl from Superior

EMD said...

Reminds me of this.

LakeLevel said...

There once was a girl from Superior
Who had the most talented posterior
She would snatch bills off their faces
Putting their noses in places
So that the next time they might be leerier

MadisonMan said...

Why is that scary? 17 is the age of consent in MN. Mind you, I think it's pretty tacky (probably in a literal sense too) and both men, especially the Legislator, should be shamed publicly when they emerge from the stall (I'm assuming that's where it happened, although it could've been in a car at the rest stop). Why should it be illegal?

AllenS, I do recall when reading about this that falling off the sobriety wagon was part of the story. (The Legislator fell, not the 17-yo).

MadisonMan said...

So there are all sorts of things wrong with it, including the age difference. But wrong doesn't mean, and shouldn't mean, illegal every time.

Revenant said...

At booking he gave his name as "The Aristocrats".

kentuckyliz said...

You are being incredibly judgmental of gay 17 year olds cruising craigslist for sex with old fags.

Carnifex said...

I always found that shooting my partners put that loving feeling riht outta their heads. So I gave that up.

Now I'm not sayin' it's true, but my roommate in college told the story of an old farmer back in his hometown, that also involved lots of beer for both parties, and a pony. The pony wasn't free to discuss it so I can't say whether that was true or not.

@Rabel

A peccadillo: a cros between an armadillo and a peccary?

I didn't click on the link. I have too few braincells left to waste, so I assume these incidents happened seperatelly? I hope they happened...I pray?!

And finally, this brings to mind my old story of finding polaroids of a woman and a pony in a house I was remodeling. What a world we live in. Socially embaressing depraved act in one country, headliner act in a cheap bar in another.

Kinda' makes me glad that Louisville just advertises LIVE! LIVE! LIVE! TOTALLY NUDE! GIRLS!!! in our redlight district.

Polaroids!!

Forget it, Althouse.

It's Superior.

Thanks pal.
Clean up in aisle 5

Rusty said...

Superior,
Gateway to Minnesota!

Come for the fishboil.

Stay for the perversion!

Gives a whole new meaning to "animal hubandry"

Revenant gets a chicken dinner.

Not that it matters, but they were behind the rest room building, I believe.

Carnifex said...

The Left really has a problem distinguishing immoral from illegal, don't they?

Unknown said...

More news from the homeland of Ed Gein.

Is this sort of thing considered unusual in Wisconsin or was it just a slow news day and they were looking for police blotter stuff to fill the paper?

Calypso Facto said...

bruises to her tail bone

She probably won't get any flack from the other cops about that....

Crunchy Frog said...

Of course he shot the horse first - less chance of getting hoof prints in inconvenient places.

The cop would have been a lot more cooperative had he shot her too.
