WAYNESBORO, PA — A Waynesboro man is charged with having sexual intercourse with a cow this past May at an Antrim Township farm. Officers were called to a farm in the 400 block of Clay Hill Road on May 8th.
According to Pennsylvania State Police, a woman told them a man came to her farm and asked to see the calves. She said she then witnessed the man, later identified as Galen A. Benedict, putting his penis in the back of three calf hutches and appeared to be attempting to lure the calves to him.
Police located and interviewed Benedict several hours later. According to an affidavit of probable cause, the man told police he went to the farm because he had to pee. He also said the first two calves he attempted to lure failed to express interest, but that the third had latched onto him, but wasn’t there long enough to get enjoyment from it.
Benedict, 65, is charged with sexual intercourse with an animal, indecent exposure and disorderly conduct. He faces a Sept. 10 preliminary hearing before Magisterial District Judge Duane Cunningham.
