Horse apparently date raped in western North Dakota

DICKINSON – A horse on a farm east of Dickinson was recovering Friday from an apparent sexual assault, an illegal act ranchers suggest happens all too often in this area, but rarely gets reported.

When Rex Cook saw his son-in-law’s horse Jan. 17, he knew something was wrong with her. He phoned the Stark County Sheriff’s Office which responded.

“It seemed like it was kind of doped or sedated the following day around noon,” said SCSO Capt. Dean Franchuk.

The 7-year-old mare, which resided on Cook’s farm, continued to act in an unhealthy manner, so Cook called his son-in-law, Jerry Reichert, to take her to a veterinarian in Glendive, Mont.

Reichert said the injuries were nothing like the vet had encountered before.

“This is, as you can imagine, not something you think about,” he said. “It was fairly traumatic in respect to the horse.”

The vet was unsure whether an instrument was used to cause the horse’s internal injuries, however the wounds were consistent with sexual assault, Reichert said. A toxicology screen was completed, but drugs that might have been used in the attack could be filtered out of the horse’s system as she wasn’t seen by the vet until nearly 24 hours after the attack, he said.

    The term “date rape” doesn’t apply to this article. This animal was sexually assaulted.

    This is animal abuse that PETA and i can agree on.

    I read awhile back that in Europe several cases of animal rape with ax handles were atributed to some islamic men for some reason I don’t quite understand…
    One muslim man was even killed while in the act of using the handle on the horse…
    Just saying, I read about it happening in Europe…

    From Atlas Shrugs archive:

    The languages, in which “children sex” is most often searched for are Indonesian and Arabic. If you search for “rape sex”, Muslim countries take up three out of four on the top-four. And again Indonesian and Arabic are the languages in which this type of sex is most frequently searched for.

    Just for fun, I tried searching for “donkey sex” and again it turned out that Muslim countries take up four out of five places on the top-five.

    However,
    this time the languages in which the search for donkey sex is most frequently executed were Turkish and Arabic.

    Ayatollah Khomeni would not have raised an eyebrow.
    Of course there can be different explanations as to why the interest in searching for these kinds of sex is so great in many of the largest Muslim countries, but it is, nevertheless, thought-provoking seen in the light of Islam and the Muslim culture’s view on free sexuality and love as sick and wrong.

    Only humans can consent to “a date;” animals don’t.

    Date raped my ass! That description fits the, drugged to the eyeballs, beast I bet on last summer, and that subsequently ran off during a race at Metrapark, in Billings. Considering the lack of speed it exhibited during it’s brief time on the track, I’d calculated it should come trotting into Dickinson, though my calculations say Beulah, at any time during the past week. Just check the inside of it’s lip, all horses that appear, almost wrote race there, on American tracks, must have a number tattooed there…That wouldn’t be a bad idea for convicted felons, either, since they’re partial to Tats anyway.

    “Unsure as to whether an instrument was used “, is he? He’s a fraud if he doesn’t know, with certainty, that an instrument had to have been used in the assault, And does this reporter have any concept of the size of a Stallion’s sexual organ? Wilt Chamberlain, on his best night, would find himself, woefully, inadequate for such an assignation. But the story titillates the little old ladies, and sells a few papers, I guess.

    Haven’t heard much out of Sparkie for several weeks. Does he have an alibi? Has anyone seen him hitch hiking on the east bound side of I90 recently or the trans Canada highway?
