    OR - Sam & Rachel Petterson for sex abuse, child porn, Jefferson, 2010

    Warning: This might cause triggers concerning sexual abuse and animals.

    I guess I've become the bestiality first responder for WS. I cannot tell you all how hard these stories are for me. I hear from other posters that they set off terrible triggers. I've thought long and hard about continuing to start threads but I think we all need to know about this crime as it so often ties into child sexual abuse and child porn. I find it shocking just how many cases included both crimes. So, I will continue to dig up these disgusting cases but I promise to put warnings on each. I care deeply about my fellow posters and find it heartbreaking that this particular subject seems to set off more triggers than any other I've ever written about. I think we, as a society, need to stop looking away, and pay attention.

    Police were investigating allegations of sexual abuse and child pornography related to Sam L. Petterson, 34, of Jefferson when they found the footage. Petterson was arrested and charged in March.

    Rachel M. Petterson, 32, was arrested April 14 and released from Marion County jail the same day.

    You know, kbl, I've been reading about this "crime" (the best choice of word, IMO) and it certainly is not a new one. I was really really surprised how much almost mainstream stuff there is out there about this act. It seems that people who have sex with animals are split into two groups; bestialists, who are simply seeking sex with animals and zoophiles, who are seeking loving sexual relationships with animals and identify this as a sexual orientation.

    As probably most of you, I'm having a hard time with this. I've known about bestiality porn since reading the "Cider House Rules" but always thought it was tremendously taboo in polite company--certainly not like a shoe fetish, etc. I'm bothered tremendously by the ethical and moral implications of it as I do not think it honors our animals. I believe that we are here on earth to care for those "lesser than ourselves" and having sex with those lesser than ourselves is not OK in my book.

    I guess what shocks me the most is 1) this stuff is sure out of the closet now 2) it seems to be linked more and more to risk taking and child sex abuse 3) there are a lot of dilemmas in legislating against it and 4) the internet is going to do nothing but fan the flames and LE has hardly enough time to deal with the children.

    On behalf of all the animal lovers we seem to have on this site, I think I speak for all of us when I say that this kind of garbage besmirches something so wonderful and sweet. What could be more pure and fun and wholesome than playing with and loving your dog or cat or horse? These people make it seems dirty. It's similar to child porn in that there isn't a decent parent alive who doesn't revel in their child's beautiful body fresh out of the tub. Well the child porn collectors have ruined that for us--both in reality as we can no longer take photos for our families of naked babies and toddlers and in our minds as we see everything through a new lens now. It really saddens me as a mother and a dog lover with eight tiny ones cuddled under the comforter with me as I type this.

    Sometimes I sigh when I feel like the heavens have opened up and poured something onto my lap that I cannot ignore. Do I have "enjoy researching pedophiles and bestiality written on my back"? One of my favorite sayings is "Stupidity makes me tired". It makes me tired because I have a hard time leaving stupidity alone. I feel like I have to do something about it.

    I've been to Jefferson many times and it is a VERY small town. I'm shocked and sick all at the same time.

    Kimster--What's your theory on connections in all these cases in this general area? We've had several out of Salem, Darrin Daily in Newberg, the guy last week in Federal Way, Douglas Spink in WA (but formerly of Beaverton). Is there just more reporting, is it meth, easier social networking through the internet, what??

    Isn't Portland supposed to be one of the most animal friendly cities in the nation? We didn't mean that kind of friendly!!

    Missizzy - I think the tie is that both victim pools are completely powerless. That is the allure. I've read that the increase in very young (infant) child porn is because they cannot speak. Neither can animals....

    IWannaKnow--I think you're right. On another thread, a few days ago, a poster asked how someone could be sexually attracted to an infant. They most likely aren't. It's as you say--control. Why would someone rape their severely disabled teen son, a 91 year old woman, hundreds of infants in Delaware? Control. That's got to be it.

    The sad thing is that abuse which occurs to human infants who are pre-verbal changes the psyche forever. I would imagine an animal who's been abused or inappropriately aroused could be dangerous. And the fact that so much physical harm is mixed in with the sexual arousal is sick. The lines between sexual activity and mutilation are very blurred with infants and animals.

    You're right, it's a sick way to wield control.

    Excellent point, IWannaKnow.

    Izz, good lookout on the trigger message before posting.

    Thankfully that has no merit in my childhood sexual abuse. However, the ugly, slimey, greasey, drunken pervert who molested me may have had an even darker side if there could be such a thing.

    As kids he always asked to take his baby grandaughter (my friend). She'd come home almost catatonic my mom said and her mother on way more than one ocassion said to my own mom "Geez, what the he*l do they do change her diaper after the dog crawled on it?" My mom said the diapers literally had dog hair shed inside them.

    O.K. nobody wants to even imagine such a horrid thing. Nobody. When I finally told at the ripe old age of 37 the guy is a freak and raped me my mom and this woman got an "Aha" moment. It was like "Oh he couldn't have done this to Suzzie as an infant now could he?"

    He*l yeah he could have. I pray he didn't but the world hasn't gone mad. It hasn't been shot to he*l. There's perverts in it. People with perversions so sick we don't want to believe it. Maybe if someone way back then abruptly demanded to know what the he*l was going on with the diapers I'd have been saved. Maybe if the woman stopped letting the freak and his wife take her baby over and over again she may have been saved.

    Plain and simple nobody says jack s*it. Lord knows ya don't want to offend an offender ya know? If you hurt a child you most certainly can hurt an animal. These POS's probably why not both at the same time. Oh and when it comes down to it I believe there's money in it. Loot. Cash. The root of all evil. For God's sake it needs to stop. Taboo isn't even a word to me. The word is sick or sinister or plain you're a rotten, piece of cr*p that needs to be executed or locked up.

    O.K. rant over. Sorry. Izz, I understand you researching this. I do. Nobody wants to do it, but someone has to.

    April 2011
    A Jefferson woman was sentenced Thursday to 30 days in jail and 60 months of supervised probation after pleading guilty to multiple charges of sexual assault of an animal and criminal mistreatment.

    Marion County Judge Mary James also ordered Rachel Petterson to undergo a sex offender evaluation and any treatment recommended as a result of that evaluation. She will not have to register as a sex offender. Petterson and her now ex-husband, Sam Petterson, were arrested in April on allegations of sexual assault of an animal after police found home video of them sexually assaulting dogs.
