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 s*xual misconduct, UticaOD.com reported.
Authorities said Fontaine attempted to have s*x 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 s*x with cows. In 2008, Brazilian cleaner Getulino Ferreira Paraizo was accused of having s*x with 400 cows. He said he preferred the more tranquil animals.
It has also been discovered through study that men who have had s*x with animals were twice as likely to develop penile cancer as those who stick with their own kind.
