Two men in Herkimer County are accused of sexually abusing cows.

Troopers say they’ve charged Michael Jones, 35, and Reid Fontaine, 31, with misdemeanor sexual misconduct.

The farm’s owner set up video surveillance in his barn, to find out why his cows appeared anxious and were not producing milk normally. The owner then called State Police after the footage showed the cows were being sexually abused.

Troopers say Jones agreed to videotape Fontaine as he tried to have sexual contact with several cows.


The men have been released on an appearance ticket.
