This guy really REALLY loves animals.

Bizarre...wouldn't the horse boot him in the head?

All he wanted was some sugar.

It was the horse's fault, it kept leading the chap on with those bedroom (stable) eyes. Moreover, what sort of horse was it? If it was a thoroughbred standing at over 12 hands high, this chap must be awfully tall.

There's a difference between sex and love...

If the horse objected its very likely. But the abuse of the horse started long before Vereen showed up. The degree to which horses are made obedient to people makes it difficult to determine if the horse was willing or not. And the strange behavior? I am sure a vaginal infection will do that.

I don't know exactly what the court concluded but his real crimes were trespassing and not cleaning up first, thus the infections. Its a joke that he was registered as a sex offender or that anyone cares about the sex. If the owners sold that old horse to the killers to be murdered and ground into dog food, no one would even check to see if tax on the profit was duly paid!

So while the animal sex does not bother me his abuse of the horse does, but that counts for the owners too, I have no doubt of their abuse.

"Rodell Vereen was also ordered never to go near the stable where the horse’s owner caught him and held him for authorities at shotgun point over the summer.(Question #1. She held him at shotgum point over the summer? How slow are the authorities there?) He apologized to the woman and to himself Question #2. Did he accept his apology to himself?) after admitting to buggery at the Horry County courthouse."

They never said if the horse was a female or a mail. Women do this to horses too. I remember when riding the bus in Jr. High, a picture was being passed around the bus. Incredible. Something my sisters and I will never forget.

Horses meet neither the P.O. limits of size or weight to be "mail". But I doubt the horse was male because of the name "Sugar" combined with the infections. Most likely he was putting fecal matter inside the mare by being an unhygenic dipstick. (enjoy the pun!) To give a male infections you would just about have to cut him I think.

Was this a "shotgun wedding" but the groom pulled out. The guardian of this 21 year old filly then went to the police? Seems there is no fury like women scorned. I expect the horse has been canned for its dalliances and will be available on your supermarket shelf soon like many other aging horses.At least he she will keep dogs happy now.

More facts and even a picture. Sugar is a mare.

What a sicko. If he can do that to a horse, what (and who) else is he capable of abusing? I fail to see why some people think it's funny, I wonder what they'd do if they found a weirdo buggering their pet cat, dog, rabbit, or whatever? Just because a horse is big doesn't mean it deserves such treatment. If he ever goes near a horse again, I hope it kicks him in the head. Hard.

3 years? Jeeze, a low level drug peddler on the street gets less than that.

One day he may yet graduate to having sex with humans! But he still may not get that kick in the head! Go figure!

Bestiality. There ya have it folks. Now that that wall has been broken down, I wonder whats next? goes into corner and hurls lunch

Aside from that, whats the deal with using "buggery"? Are we all going british?

This bothers me.. I think it's messed up what he did.. but 3 years is harsh. It's perfectly legal put race horses to sleep when they can no longer win, but it's illegal to make love to one. Was the horse in a position where it could not have escaped? Was it mutual?

The punishment seems a little unbalanced.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

, but it's illegal to make love to one" I bet there will be a movement someday on people wanting to get married with animals.

Rednecks, what is it with these guys and stuff like this?

I wonder what spurs people into this kinda horseplay? He may get out in 3 years but he will be saddled by the insults for the rest of his life.

South Carolina - where men are men, and horses are nervous. Thanks for the great story...I had no idea there was a crime known as "buggery."

Buggery is a legal term, and is a bona fide English word not restricted to the British Isles. It has an interesting etymology, deriving from the French word for Bulgarian, after a sect of Bulgarian monks devoted to sodomy. In humans, buggery refers to anal intercourse, but with congress between animals and humans, bestiality, buggery can mean either anal or vaginal intercourse.

Complete and utter depravity, and yet there are still states in the US where bestiality is still not illegal, (Alaska included I believe, so not 'only in the south' I am afraid)and it is these very same religious-nut red-neck states that are so anti-gay!!

Yes, it seems our lawmakers have better things to do with their time.

Complete and utter depravity

You mean like keeping large field animals locked in rooms smaller than any in your house? And only so that you can have the pleasure of seeing them run around a race track getting whipped the whole way? And if they stumble and break a leg you shoot them? If I am reincarnated as a horse, I will take the depravity you are so concerned about thanks.

I agree with other posters that abuse should be investigated more agrresively, and euthanasia for arbitrary reasons should be banned. Similar things also happen to Greyhounds.

That's a hell of a long time to hold him at gunpoint! Can you hold someone at uzipoint?! And I'm not surprised the horse was acting strange!

This is both funny and sick as hell. What a creep! I only wonder how the boys in the pin are going to react once they find out why he is there? Something tells me that in the end, the man may "feel" the horses's pain.

Wow, what is it about South Carolina. Home of horse lovers, Argentine trail hikers and republican nutters who scream at the President.

Its looking more and more like the North should have let itself lose the Civil War. The USA may have come out better without the extra baggage.

There was a witness - the pig squealed on him.

If I remeber right there was a horse fancier who died from a ruptured colon. Apparently he was an exec at Boeing and his friends didn't seek treatment because he didn't want the attention. That my friends is an awful large appendage to allow in your arse. Anyway, how do they know if the horse objected, I say free the man.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Wait he assaulted the horse, it doesn't specify but maybe I was wrong assuming he was on the reciving end. LOL he had to register as a sex offender for his first offense. That's gonna be a great conversation in the slammer "hey buddy what are you in for?" "well you see......."

I thought about the boys in the pen too, but I thought that no self respecting con is going to want to even stand near this guy. After all, there is sick and there is super sick and this one is super sick.

Maybe an ideal punishment would be to turn the tables and let a horse have a go at him; that would bring tears to his eyes.

It would probably do more than that. There was a guy in the Seattle area not long ago who -with the farmer's permission- put himself on the receiving end. And died from the experience.

There are times I wish I didn't read the news.

WhiteHawk, maybe he was the Boeing guy I mentioned before. Pretty disturbing any way you slice it

usaexpat, that's certainly possible, since Boeing is based in Seattle.

I couldn't understand the article first. I thought horse has another meaning like girl. I've never haerd like the news. I'm very suprised. why he did that? I can't figure him out. maybe nodady.. Is it kind of cruety to animals?? anyway he is stupid.

How is a man arrested for "buggery" in the US? The US does not have any term "buggery" in the judicial system. I think the article should be reworded to fit the situation more accurately. It happened in the US, not the UK.
