"they weren't even his own cows"

God bless my sister. On a day when I'm feeling blah-er than blah, she comes through with the Local Paper article I have been waiting for all my life. Here it is in all it's royally fucked up glory:

Neillsville man charged with sex with animal

NEILLSVILLE - A 63-year-old Neillsville man has been charged with sexual gratification with an animal.
Harold G. Hart, W7763 Highway 95, is facing four misdemeanor charges - sexual gratification, disorderly conduct and two counts of obstructing an officer. Hart told police he's been having sex with calves for between one and two years at the farm.

Clark County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Jim Backus said the last case similar to Hart's was 20 or more years ago. Hart likely traveled to the Greenwood farm because "it's really not far out of his travel area" on his way to Marshfield bars or strip clubs on Highway H, Backus said.

According to the criminal complaint, the family installed a motion detector on Jan. 22 because they routinely had seen footprints and vehicle tracks.
At about 4 a.m. the following morning, a sensor sounded, and Hart was caught leaving the barn. He said he used a bathroom in the barn and claimed he had never been there before.

However, on Jan. 28 Hart admitted to police he routinely stopped at the farm, usually after bar closing or on trips to strip clubs near Marshfield or Neillsville.

Hart told police he had sex with heifers before 1963, when he went into the service, and resumed about a year ago at the farm. He admitted to using a rope to tie calves around the neck and estimated having gone to the farm "at least 50 times." He always went alone and would sometimes go to the farm two to four times in a week, while other times avoiding it for weeks.

A statement by Hart said he never had sex with animals while maintaining a relationship with a girlfriend or his wife. Hart never took anything or intentionally damaged the barn.

His initial appearance in Clark County Court is set for March 10. Each charge carries a maximum penalty of nine months in jail.

I don't know if this should be taken as a compliment to Marshfield strip club workers, or slap in the face to Marshfield prostitution workers...
