Authorities arrested an elderly man in Missouri June 10 for having sex with a cow.
A barn owner reportedly caught 68-year-old Darrell Helton standing naked behind one of her cows, the Daily Mail reports.
When questioned, Helton admitted he was having sex with the animal. He also confessed that this was actually the second cow he had sexual relations with from that same barn.
The married man was charged with unlawful sex with an animal, a misdemeanor that lands most offenders in jail for up to one year.

Helton is not the first man to capture national attention for enjoying sex with animals, the Daily Mirror reports.
Malcolm Brenner, 63, from Florida, confessed not just to having sex with a dolphin, but also to being in love with the animal, according to Mirror Online.
Brenner explains that the dolphin, Dolly, seduced him.
I was given free access to the dolphins and I became friends with her by going swimming with her. She was very special. She announced her intentions to me by positioning herself so I was rubbing against her. At first I discouraged her, I wasn't interested. After some time I thought, 'If this was a woman would I come up with these rationalizations and excuses?'

So began their affair, which lasted for one year.
"There's something quite transcendental about making love with a dolphin,” Brennan said.
The man says when the dolphin died, he was heartbroken.
"I called it a relationship because that's what it was. When she died it made me feel terrible and I fell into a depression which lasted five years,” he said.
As bestiality was not illegal in Florida at the time, Brennan was not charged with breaking any laws.
Dolphins aren’t the only animals Brennan has had sexual relations with.
"I'm attracted to animals that have a rather independent streak in them,” he said. "Animals that think for themselves. In addition to the dolphin, the only animal I ever had any sexual experience with is canines."
