So Now We Know…

A wire service story names the victim—er, the deceased, I guess, since he wasn’t exactly coerced—in the case of the man fucked to death by a horse in Washington State last summer. From

A man has pleaded guilty to trespassing in connection with a fatal horse-sex case.

James Michael Tait, 54, of Enumclaw, was accused of entering a barn without the owner’s permission. Tait admitted to officers that he entered a neighboring barn last July with friend Kenneth Pinyan to have sex with a horse, charging papers said. Tait was videotaping the episode when Pinyan suffered internal injuries that led to his death.

Tait pleaded guilty Tuesday and was given a one-year suspended sentence, a $300 fine, and ordered to perform eight hours of community service and have no contact with the neighbors.

The prosecutor’s office said no animal cruelty charges were filed because there was no evidence of injury to the horses.

Had the dead man’s name been released before? Or has this Seattle man just now been outed as a late horse fuckee?
