FBI agents cracked down on unsuspecting party goers at a Missouri pig farm yesterday where more than 40 arrests were made over allegations of bestiality and animal cruelty.
Suspected for some time by local authorities of running a pig farm functioning as an underground pig brothel, where clients paid for sexual services with the farm animals, the 67-year old farm owner was arrested with two of his sons and some 30 guests who were present to celebrate his birthday.
Caught in full action during the night of the birthday bash, the FBI raid engaged more than 16 agents in what local officials believe to be the biggest crackdown on an animal brothel in American history.
Hundreds of piglets were forced into sexual acts with clients of the pig brothel
An increase in sexually deviant behavior
Local authorities fear a recrudescence in sexually deviant behavior with animals in the region since this is the third animal brothel to be closed down in recent months in the area.
“ We can’t explain why underground animal brothels seem to be so high in demand in the region “

“That human beings are allowed to unleash their wildest fantasies in such a context, even though illegal, might prevent such abuses as rape from being committed” she admits.
“But at the same time, having sexual relations with pigs and other animals is not considered to be a healthy behavior and should not be encouraged” she acknowledges.
The farmer and his sons could spend up to five years in prison expect legal experts.
