Man Convicted for Sex with Dead Deer
NOT AN EXCLUSIVE (Typing this from a secured machine that won't allow me to download Firefox... but this story is so neat-o that I had to go guerilla-style)
A man was sentenced to probation and evaluation as a sex offender for having sex with a deer carcass. Yes, it's gross. Yes, it gives one the creeps. But is is really a crime? The judge based his decision upon offense to his own morality, which is a slippery slope. However, the defendant had prior run-ins with the law for killing a horse in order to, well, shag its corpse. Now THAT'S a crime, as far as I'm concerned. I suppose, in all fairness, the circumstances are everything. Find a dead deer and have your way with it? Icky. Kill ananimal to, um, do things with it? Criminal. Check out this article from The Register.
