MA trying to emulate TX?

Have you heard the saying “Texas! Where men are men and sheep are scarred.” before? Well, looks like a young man in Massachussettsis trying to change the state that gets that claim.

A Sherborn teen was charged this afternoon with allegedly having sex with sheep at a farm near his home, a pattern police suggest may have gone on for nearly a year.

. . .

According to police reports, the incident at the farm in June 2007 was just the latest in at least a dozen break-ins. Prompted by the earlier incidents, the owner of the farm installed surveillance cameras, including one near the sheep pen.

Between 3 and 4 a.m. on June 27, the police report says, “the camera…captured and filmed a light-skinned black male subject identified as Roger Henderson II.

“Henderson is observed in sheep pen grabbing a sheep by its hind legs and dragging it to the corner of the stall. Henderson removes his clothes and appears to have sexual relations with the sheep. Upon finishing, Henderson puts his pants back on and leaves the barn area with his shirt in his hand.”

Really, things like this make me realize I need to add a WTF? category to the blahg.

Oh, and if anyone asks you, I hear it is customary to pet them before leaving. Mr. Henderson didn’t even have the decency to say “Thank you, ma’am.” and scratch her ears.

I do wonder, though, if maybe Roger just misunderstood what folks were saying when they said he was the black sheep of the family? It could have happened.
