This isn't the first time beastiality has been reported even in the Midwest. Amber Finney became known as the first person in Ohio to have pleaded guilty of beastiality when a video surfaced of her engaging in sexual acts with a dog. She was serving probation in 2017 when she was arrested for robbing a bank in Warren, Ohio. She was caught when police followed her foot tracks through the snow to the house in which she was hiding. She has since been indicted on charges of robbery, per the New York Post.

And three men in Pennsylvania will spend up to 41 years in prison for sexually assaulting more than a dozen animals over a five-year period, according to the New York Daily News.
