The Final Enumclaw Horse/Beastiality Update
An Enumclaw-area man has pleaded guilty to criminal trespass Tuesday in a case in which a Seattle man died having sex with a horse.
James Tait and a 45-year-old Seattle man went onto a neighbor's property last summer to have sex with a horse, prosecutors say. The Seattle man sustained a perforated colon and died from his injuries after being dumped at an emergency room.
Tait was essentially the pimp for a nearby farm where people had sex with animals. . .unbeknownst to the horse owners.
Pathetically, Tait, 54, was given a one-year suspended sentence on condition he pay a $300 fine, perform eight hours of community service and have no contact with the horse owners. I don't understand why he wasn't charged with negligent homicide. The horse owners told a reporter last summer that police showed them a home video of the July 2 incident that investigators seized from Tait's home. That videotape, or a similar one, has turned up on the internet.
