You Know, Like the Amish

Despite the fact that it’s in the “weird news” category, a section I usually refrain from linking, two separate reader submissions have caused me to write up this bizarre story (be forewarned, the associated images are more than a bit grotesque). Apparently after caring for an aging horse and ultimately putting it down humanely, an Oregon couple took a series of bizarre photographs with the body, before ultimately consuming the animal. The Internet is aghast, though no actually crime was committed here.

“The fact that this woman crawled into the horse between killing and eating does not constitute a crime,” Thompson said.

Being harmlessly weird shouldn’t be illegal, but maybe we could all engage in a little group shunning?
