Oh, George… not the livestock.
Somebody should have given the same advice to Bryan James Hathaway of Superior, Wisconsin. Bryan has had a few run ins with the law, and he has been accused more than once of doing things to animals.
Weird, sick, perverted things.
Back in 2003, Bryan got locked up for pointing a rifle at some teenagers. He was himself a teenager at the time, a fact that may have accounted for a sentence of probation.
But ole Bry baby couldn’t stay out of trouble.
In 2004, Daniel Paden, Cruelty Caseworker for PETA’s Domestic Animal and Wildlife Rescue & Information Department, wrote a letter to the District Attorney in Douglas County, Wisconsin regarding Bryan’s upcoming court appearance for another charge. Bryan was accused of shooting a horse – Bambrick by name – under unusual circumstances. As Paden explained to the D.A.
Hathaway faces felony charges stemming from his alleged December 6 fatal shooting of an elderly horse in Parkland. According to news sources, the accused told authorities that he shot the animal following the animal’s defensive response to his apparent attempt to rape her. [emphasis added]
Another source said that Bambrick wasn’t a her, he was a gelding. Poor Bambrick – first they castrated him, and then weird Bryan showed up and buggered him before shooting him. Bryan got 18 months in the Wisconsin penitentiary for screwing up his probation with the rape and murder of Bambrick.
You will be as shocked as I was, to learn that Bryan, now out of prison, is yet again in trouble with the law.
According to the criminal complaint filed in Douglas County Circuit Court, Superior Police Officer Adam Poskozim and two Department of Corrections agents met with [Bryan]Hathaway at his transitional housing residence in Superior Oct. 11.
The Superior man’s clothes were covered with blood and what appeared to be deer hair and Hathaway originally told officers he had helped his father clean a deer.
Later, he admitted to having sex with the dead deer near Murphy Oil refinery. Hathaway said he was aroused by the sight of the deer in the ditch. He admitted moving its carcass into the woods, where the assault occurred.
Oh, Bryan…not the livestock…again.
Bryan is clearly a disturbed man. Given his past, and current behavior, I think that Bryan could be working his way up to eventually do something weird, sick and violent…to a human being. I speak not from my meager experience, I have arrested only two animal rapers in my career, but I base my opinion on what the pshrinks say.
When asked how many serial killers had a history of abusing animals, FBI supervisory special agent Alan Brantley, a psychologist who was formerly on staff at a maximum security prison, said, “The real question is, ‘How many do not?’” Experts agree that it is the severity of the behavior, not the species of the victim, that matters.
Bryan is a scary fucker all right.
But his potential danger is a creation of his cravings, or his warped mind, or the little voices that tell him what to do. The guy whose actions I don’t understand is Frederick Anderson – Bryan’s public defender. Quoting Billy Crystal, Wisconsin case law and various dictionaries, Anderson has made a motion before the court in the case of Wisconsin v. Hathaway.
Anderson doesn’t deny that Scary Bryan did the nasty with Bambi in the woods, just that that there was no law against what happened. Simply said, Anderson claims that Hathaway has not broken the law against having sex with animals, because the dead deer was was no longer an animal. It was just a deer carcass.
The deerly departed, if you will.
At death, an animal ceases to be an animal. As Billy Crystal noted in The Princess Bride, “There’s a big difference between mostly dead and all dead.”
Frederick – for this you went to law school?
