According to the Swedish Veterinary Association (Veterinärförbundet) there were around 20 reported cases of horses or cows with their sexual organs mutilated reported in 2006. By 2010 this number had doubled to 40 cases.
Niklas Långström, sex crimes expert and professor of psychiatric epidemiology at Karolinska Institutet, told TV4 that this is not a case of ordinary cruelty to animals.
“This is done by people getting a sexual kick from animals in general and of inflicting pain on them, a sexual sadistic kick, so to speak,“ he said.
Disgusting. Just a thought for the sick perps: when you've got an itch to scratch on a brisk Swedish night, you have the option to solicit the services of whores, NOT horse.
