A Man And A Horse Named Sugar

Just when you think the news isn't weird enough already, a South Carolina :::::sigh:::: man has been charged with having sex with a horse after the animal's owner caught him in the act.

On videotape.

First Pam and Tommy, then Paris, and, finally, this.

And, on the scale of odd, this part falls a tad bit lower, this wasn't the first time Rodell Vereen has been charged with buggery. He pleaded guilty last year to having sex with the same horse after owner Barbara Kenley found him in the same stable. He was sentenced to probation and placed on the state's sex offender list.

Just a few weeks ago, Kenley noticed her 21-year-old horse Sugar was acting strange and getting infections again. She noticed things in the barn had been moved around – dirt piled up and bales of hay stacked near the horse's stall.

"Police kept telling me it couldn't be the same guy," Kenley said Wednesday. "I couldn't believe that there were two guys going around doing this to the same horse."
After spending several nights in the stall to no avail, Kenley installed surveillance cameras, and when she reviewed the footage from July 19, she couldn't believe she was seeing the same man doing the same thing to her horse.

Yet Kenley didn't call police because, she says, she was certain he would come back again, and he did; she then chased him to his truck and held him there with her shotgun until police came.

Vereen was first charged with trespassing, but police added a buggery charge after watching the surveillance tape. He faces up to five years if convicted, seeing as how he was already on probation after pleading guilty to buggery last year and being ordered to stay away from the Lazy B Stables.

Wow. That horse must have been good to come back after being caught the first time. Very weird!

I mean consensual sex in the privacy of one's own bedroom is nobody's business, but out there in the open in a stable...really poor taste. Wonder if there were flowers in the extra hay?

Can't he find a person to have sex with? There are horse-faced people around.
