Switzerland, a nation of horse shaggers

Well, not quite, but who'd have though there'd be so many George Bestials here? And the numbers are on the increase too!

The Independent is basing its report on a very dubious source, namely : http://www.thelocal.ch/20151127/zoop...by-legal-group

Re: Switzerland, a nation of horse shaggers

So according to certain members of this forum, at least 2500 of the horse abusers must be ex-pats.

So come on, who is it?

Re: Switzerland, a nation of horse shaggers

Might not be only horses

here is a headline from today's FT "Christmas food special
From slow reared turkey to mince pies and fine wine
"

Maybe would better fit this thread? " Thread titles - What first pops into your head, when you read one? "

Re: Switzerland, a nation of horse shaggers

I've discovered my horse has a latex allergy.

How will I explain that to the vet?

Re: Switzerland, a nation of horse shaggers

Horses are much bigger and more unwieldy than sheep. Therefore CH>Wales, NZ and Aus.

In fact I would rather try it on with a scary looking girl than a horse so ... respect switzerland... respect.

Except i am no longer buying horse steaks at coop.

Re: Switzerland, a nation of horse shaggers

This guy walks into a bar in West Virginia and orders a white wine. Everybody sitting around the bar looks up, surprised, and the bartender looks around and says, "You ain't from around here, are ya...where ya from, boy?"
The guy says, "I'm from Iowa."
The bartender asks, "What th' hell you do in Iowa?"
The guy responds, "I'm a taxidermist."
The bartender asks, "A taxidermist...now just what th' hell is a taxidermist?"
The guy says "I mount animals."
The bartender grins and shouts out to the whole bar, "It's OK boys, he's one of us!"

Re: Switzerland, a nation of horse shaggers

Back to the numbers from the article:

- 105 cases of declared abuses against horses
- almost 10% of them sexual
- there are 10 cases of zoophilia with horse fetish in Switzerland
- the number of perpetrator is not identified by this statistics

When I compare with the title of the thread: WTF!!!!!
