I'll bet he would have gone on to hurt people next..
This couple should get serious psych evaluations, and not allowed to be around animals or children, ever!
What moronic depravity.

Those people are sickos. A psych hospital with daily head shrinking might fix them, but I'll bet they were so hooked into what they were doing it won't do any good anywho....

Yes, there are a lot of loonies in Florida. My ex- is one them and she lives in Florida.

thanks, Cate, noted..disgustingly, however jail would not be good enough for these two coo-coos....sick and demented is all i can say....and the horrible part is she's a nurse! Man is that ever scary, wouldn't want to be under her care. Hope her license gets provoked, and they both get what they deserve in jail, and believe me, the inmates would love to get their hands on these two, oh yes, what goes around comes around......RIP to the animals that suffered under the hands of these sub-humans....may the animals souls rise up to the higher power.....Peace...

These are 2 sick individuals and they need some help, although I doubt they will rehabilitate......maybe they can think about it while doing some jail time!!! Pretty scary thought that she is in health care.....
BTW - South Florida here.....I have also met some sicko crackers in Florida Cate....surely not where I live, as it would not be tolerated......more in smaller towns with large redneck populations.....the only hunting I do is animal abusers and they are in season all year!!!.

Agree with Charles and will add that the rednecks are doing what they have seen done handed down from each generation. We have as many sickos in FL as every state! Boy, I shudder thinking that some day I may have to go to a hospital, will never look at a nurse the same way again. Sickos such as this should never be free again, lock 'em up and throw away the key! YUCK!

Sickening. I want to apologize to the entire human race and to every animal on behalf of these twisted people. In jail, I am sure they will capture and abuse cockroaches or whatever they can find!

ok folks... here is a clear cut case where in the media willfully misleads with there display of the picture as to what took place... they picture this naked woman with a dog... if you read the article it was a frog, two chameleons and a parakeet (if i am not mistaken, about the bird type)... there were no mammals killed... although it is terrible that any animals were killed at all... this is a case where the media was clearly trying to mislead the public...

Hi Cate, I actually don't think behaviour expressing at this level of absolute depravity can be reversed. It needs to be returned to the cosmic slime from when it was born. Trying to keep it around is like trying to store a dirty bomb in your backyard shed.LOL

i have beautiful lizards on my deck and most people's response is either eek or friendly advice on how to kill them usually in way that involve torture, i.e. poison; the same for my squirrels chipmunks and mice; i am also very fond of frog and toads who are very good listeners so you can imagine my delight in finding a sight where everyone is so ardently fond of a single frog and 2 chameleons plus a parakeet. (like christine, i hope you do not think that well-kept dog in the picture was tortured). as a student nurse, the woman was required to disect frogs in the name of science; i don't think this is any more necessary to science than it is to sex unless, of course, one is studying to be a frog doctor, and yet it goes on all of the time resulting in a drastic reduction in the frog population--great mosquito eaters btw. i wish you people could extend your enthusiasm beyond this one poor frog.

it does bother me though that more condemnation is given the woman who called in the police because she feared for her life; his sexual fantasies extended beyond small creature voodoo (i also think you guys are letting your imaginations run wild--"sex" here seems to mean "naked"--voodoo was the name of the game. pinning the poor things to a board a la med school was the torture plus severing their heads. he told her what to do. let's blame him too. but definitely not all nurses margaret.

i would like to repeat: that young woman was frightened enough to call the police--that's how the tapes were found. nobody actually was having intercourse with animals certainly not these bitty things and though i decry all harm to animals, this is hardly up there with what goes on casually every day certainly with small defenseless "pests". you can google for many ugly ways to kill them.

Am I missing something? Was the linked article edited? The article I just read doesn't match the picture and the title on this post, there was no dog or dogs n the story....and what website name? The charges were for animal cruelty alright but the offense isn't beastiality as implied. They may be real sickos who deserve jail time for torturing reptiles and birds; but they didn't have sex with them. Even if they wanted to, it's impossible. lol Was the actual article edited?

Here's the story I read...was it edited if so, it doesn't reflect that on the site from the time of post being 8/6/07 @ 6:01am and there's no website name at the bottom... i'm confused!

"Keystone couple accused of animal cruelty"
Sun staff writer
August 03. 2007 6:01AM

A Keystone Heights couple are facing animal cruelty charges after officers accused the pair of torturing animals while performing sex acts involving each other.

Brenda Marie Farrell, 40, and Wesley Clyde Farrell, 42, each are accused of four counts of animal cruelty for injuring and then killing a frog, two chameleons and a parakeet, the Bradford County Sheriff's Office reported Thursday.

A videotape, obtained by officers, showed the couple abusing the animals, which were nailed or taped to a board, according to court records.

On the video, the frog and bird were stabbed or punctured with straight pins. All the animals were slowly decapitated while the couple were naked or partially clothed, officers reported.

The two hurt the animals while they engaged in sex acts, officers said. The couple also used "Voodoo dolls" made from corn husks and the blood from the animals, according to investigators.

Wesley Farrell could be seen on the film telling his wife how to torture live animals, court records also stated. Incidents involving the animals occurred in December 2006 and again in February, records showed.

Officers learned about the film after Brenda Farrell went to Clay County sheriff's deputies in June, claiming her husband might be plotting to kill her because he had told her about a plan he had to kill a female co-worker, according to a Sheriff's Office report.

The slaying was part of Wesley Farrell's sexual fantasy, she said.

During the investigation, officers located the tape showing the animal abuse. The incidents occurred at the couple's former residence in southern Bradford County near Hampton, according to officers.

Investigators determined that claims of Wesley Farrell wanting his wife to hurt his co-worker were unfounded, and no charges were filed in connection with those allegations, said Clay County Sheriff's Lt. David Senters.

However, evidence of animal cruelty was turned over to Bradford County investigators because the incidents allegedly had occurred in that county. Claims of animal cruelty resulted in a criminal case against the couple.

Brenda Farrell, who is a nurse at the Putnam Community Medical Center in Palatka, was arrested earlier in the week, said Bradford County Sheriff's Sgt. Robert Smith. Wesley Farrell, a Florida Department of Transportation employee in Gainesville, turned himself in to officers and was being held at the Bradford County jail Thursday.

one can''t help but wonder if she was a willing participant since she went to the police for protection; what she got was arrest, public humiliation and universal contempt, her naked picture on the internet and she will lose her license if convicted of anything after years of rigorous study and be thrown in the pool of unskilled labor where she will ask if you want fries with that. scooter libby was pardoned because the humiliation of public conviction was already more than he could bear; people who wear convicted of crimes against US, the people of the united states, were rehired under the present administration, the president of our country has a lot more blood on his hands than that of a frog, two chameleons and a parakeet--surely we can extend a little compassion to a young woman who (mistakenly) thought the legal system would protect her.

Who cares where they're from these two need some serious help! Thank God they didn't have children as well! Unfortunately animal cruelty doesn't have much of a penalty in most parts of the world. For that matter neither does hurting children...what is with our world?

First of all hey just had some guy in the news in Wisconsin arrested for having sex with a dead deer about six months ago. I dont think florida or the south has cornered the market on either loonies or inbreeders. Most of the people in florida came there from up north.

Second of all There was no beastiality involved and there were no dogs involved. Beastiality involves having sex with an animal most of which are willing participants and are not harmed although most people find the practice offensive they dont ussually hurt the animal in any way. The couple was having sex not with any animals but with each other.

Third it was not a dog it was a frog and a bird and they were clearly abused its clearly an animal abuse case but the most disturbing part is not the animal abuse but that sort of behavior that can lead to psycosis of the type that serial killers have mentality. (ok I mangled that phrase but you get the idea) This guy needs psycological help.

When one of my cats was shot by some sadistic scumbag several years ago, I wanted to kill whoever did it. I love animals so much and I don't want anyhthing bad to happen to them; this trash deserves punishment (REAL punishment) for what they've done.
