Aggies migrate north of the border

Atrios has a link to this story in Editor and Publisher.

"Man Charged With Assault on Sheep" was the headline, and the true-life story, by Caryl Clarke, begins: "Somebody was making nighttime visits to farmer Terry Patterson's sheep barn in the 600 block of Big Mount Road in Paradise Township." It goes on to tell of a man arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a sheep after the barn owner installed a barn alarm and intercom system to prevent such attacks.
Since Pennsylvania to my recollection was not a state that attempted to legalize gay marriage, I can only assume the assailant was motivated by the negative influence of Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum. To my knowledge, the White House has not called for an amendment banning Santorum from public office and petting zoos.
