Thanks mostly to its bizarre name, HorsesAss.org is probably one of the leading political blogs nationwide… in terms of traffic from Googling pornographic search terms. And yet, I almost totally ignored the sensational Enumclaw horse story, and the easy page views that would have come with it. Go figure.
So to make up for that business miscalculation, I thought I’d block-quote this paragraph from an AP story today about an Oregon couple, jailed for sexually abusing their dog :
Chase said Baalbergen performed oral sex on the dog and received oral, vaginal and anal sex. He said Baker received anal sex.
Ugh. But two thoughts.
First, I’m no dog whisperer or anything, but I’m not sure most dogs would classify that as “abuse.” And second:
The dog, Max, had to be killed.
“Because of the way it was taught to interact with people, it couldn’t be placed in another home,” Chase said.
I’ve known plenty of dogs who were incorrigible leg humpers, but unless you cooperate by pulling your pants down and getting on all fours, I’m not sure what the big problem is. Maybe they could have tried a couple squirts from a spray bottle before offing the poor dog?
