Oregon Man Arrested On Suspicion Of Sexually Abusing Horse

| by Dominic Kelly

An Oregon man was arrested and is now facing charges after witnesses say they saw him sexually abusing a horse.

Reports say that Glen A. Garbutt, 56, was spotted “masturbating himself and [the] horse” on his property early last month.

The witnesses immediately informed police, but officers did not locate Garbutt until the end of the month, reports Oregon Live.

During the arrest, Garbutt allegedly ran from officers, forcing them to use a stun gun to subdue him.

When the cops informed him he was being arrested on suspicion of sexual abuse of an animal, Garbutt reportedly screamed that he never had sex with a horse. The officers had never mentioned anything to him about a horse.

Garbutt is currently in jail facing charges of sexual assault of an animal, resisting arrest and interfering with a police officer.

This doesn’t appear to be Garbutt’s first run-in with the law. A search of his name reveals the 56-year-old was arrested in 2013 for criminal trespassing, although it’s not clear how that case turned out.
