    Default Extremely disturbing, woman photographed naked inside dead horse

    Warning, this is horrendous, and I thought twice about posting this horrific story, but then decided that horse people needed to hear about this. So, so disgusting and sad:

    Well, it's a tad gross but not really sad.
    It was an old horse, it's life was ended in a humane manner.
    The woman and her BF are weirdo attention freaks who imagine themselves to be artistic or something. The dead horse didn't care.

    I do think it's kind of funny that the "young woman" was hoping this would "go away." Yeah, like she had nekked photos of herself taken in a bizarre and sensational manner because she didn't want attention.

    Stupid folks doing stupid things for attention and then surprised that they got the "wrong" type of attention. Happens every 5 minutes.

    At least the couple is putting the carcass to use. (I mean freezer and not as a photo prop)

    Surprised they were getting death threats. They didn't do anything cruel, just freaking weird.

    That certainly brings new meaning to the term "playing with one's food"

    Weird. Very, very weird.

    That said... it's not like they tortured the horse or anything. I find it incredibly distasteful but don't see how there was any criminal activity or anything to charge them with, unless "being really effing strange" is a crime.

    That's gross... and weird... I agree, not too sad, the horse was dead. But gross and weird, definitely.

    Some people are just morons. It isn't normal to want to get inside ANY dead animals carcass and take photos covered in blood.
    It's people like this that you read about murdering someone, just because they wondered what it would be like to kill someone.

    That's just freaking weird. I mean, not cruel or anything as the horse WAS humanely euthanized, but it's just bizarre. I will forever be fascinated with what gets people off...

    Isn't it illegal to eat horse meat in the US?

    It's only illegal to sell horsemeat, but you can eat your own horses.

    Was the Empire Strikes Back the movie that the people were freezing and they killed those white hairy things there were riding and then warmed up inside their guts?

    Yup. Slaughterhouses have been made illegal (maybe only technically in some specific states?) but provided you own the horse, you can eat it if you want. Same with any other animal, for that matter, provided it's killed humanely.

    I'll add weird to the gross. But this.

    The people??? You mean the valiant Hans Solo stuffing Luke Skywalker inside the tauntaun?

    Come on, now...don't blame Portland for this! Weird is everywhere!

    Kind of gross to use the body for "art", but I'll give them credit for humanely putting an old horse down. So many people poo-poo folks who use a gun to dispose of an old or unwanted animal, but when done properly, it is quick, humane and so much better than "the auction" or abandonment.

    While it churns my stomach, isn't that the point of Art - to push the limits. It tells a lot about the people.

    Was this supposed to be "art"? Did they intend to exhibit their work in a gallery?

    I dunno - I think there is a difference between the Venus de Milo and crotch shots of cheap women. Sounds like the photos are less art - and more like creepy pictures sickos like to collect and use for gratification.

    I've put animals down with a firearm and yes, when done properly it is humane. But given the creepy nature of these people - not sure they are very credible. The cops only have their word that the animal was dispatched correctly.

    Given their actions after the animals death, I'd not give them much credibility. I'd also not accept their dinner invitation.

    You should have thought a third time, before posting. Giving creepazoids like this sort of attention enables them, and damages your credibility at the same time. Shame on you.

    That's encouraging.

    Yes - it was a Tauntaun.
