Three Pennsylvania men who stand accused of bestiality with multiple animals are facing 1,460 counts in relation to the crimes, as well as charges of endangering the welfare of children and corruption of minors after a search warrant was obtained by police Saturday morning.
According to a news release by the Clearfield County District Attorney’s Office, a 16-year-old boy told State Police that Marc Measnikoff, 34, Matthew Brubaker, 32, and Terry Wallace, 41, of Munson, were having sexual relations with dogs, horses, a goat, and cow.
The teen, who the Clearfield County District Attorney’s office said was living in a “makeshift farm” with the men, apparently told authorities that the suspects were using a “V” shaped pen specially made to “facilitate the sexual contact.”
The search warrant led to the three men’s arrests after authorities reportedly found a large volume of cameras, homemade videos, and recording equipment on the property related to the crimes.
The juvenile male is currently in protective custody, according to officials.
Further, State Police and the Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) are working on securing appropriate placement for the animals involved in the case.
The suspected animal abusers are all behind bars with bail set at $100,000 each. They are scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing today.
Clearfield County District Attorney, William A. Shaw, Jr. said “this was one of the most extreme cases of animal abuse that his office has handled,” according to the news release.
