A former employee of the Farmington School System faces criminal charges after New York police said he attempted to have sex with a cow.

Reid Fontaine, 31, and another man was arrested at a farm in Herkimer, New York, CBS Connecticut reported. The farmer had set up video surveillance in an attempt to figure out why his cows were anxious and milk production was down.

The Hartford Courant reported that Fontaine was charged with sexual misconduct, a misdemeanor. Also charged was Michael H. Jones, 35, of Ilion, New York.

Fontaine was an IT Network Specialist for Farmington schools for the last six months. School Superintendent Kathleen C. Greider has released statement about the incident.

Greider stated that school officials learned of the charges against Fontaine on Sunday, Feb. 23. The district contacted Farmington Police and requested an investigation. Farmington Police were then in contact with police from New York. Sunday night Fontaine resigned.

"The former employee did not provide instruction to students nor did he have responsibilities involving direct student contact," Greider states.

Fontaine's responsibilities involved the district's technology infrastructure and hardware. Greider said a mandatory criminal background check did not turn up anything on Fontaine prior to him being hired.

How sickening.... Most comments refer to this incident as a joke? What kind of demented, moronic person thinks of bestiality as an act of amusement? I am totally disgusted by infantile state of mind of these idiots.... Grow the F up....

You shut up you humorlous ****

Sasha, the two individuals in the story are sick. And some of us find humor in others really poor choices. Everyone is different. Get over your pius self.
Stuart Berson February 27, 2014 at 01:31 PM
Sasha, Lighten up. A Sense of humor is the first thing lost by the mentally ill. If you are frustrated you might be in lack of a good "Beef injection" by some indiscriminating and unfortunate guy.

@Sasha. As a "prime (cut) offender" my response: IRL, I am a sane, mindful, joyful, mostly intelligent individual. I am kind to family, friends, most strangers, all animals, and I overtip. I teach rape/extreme assault survival, money I collect for this training is donated, anonymously (anonymously is more fun) Possibly due to a tuff childhood, I learned to adapt & create a life that was sane, joyful and good, then spread it out...there are sick people out there...How I "deal" is to DO something about it. Educate, train, recover...pay it forward. Your advice? Grow up. Right back atcha...Your rant in an indicator of a immature world view and lack of developing a realistic and effective coping mechanism. Your diatribe didn't hurt, sway, or shame me. Your expressed opinion did nothing for cows or the world. Your disgust & anger at a bunch of strangers here did nothing... Far uglier and more REAL problems are occuring everywhere, and THOSE things I turn my effort to. Maybe you feel like the world is a dismal, fucked up awful place... going to Hell in a hand basket. It's not...Humans have been thru WAY worse than what you see now. Cow molesting will not destroy the fabric of humanity. What WE were doing is called: sarcasm, sardonic wit, Pun Play and wordsmithing contests, satire, gallows humor, and a very fun and lighthearted "one up mans shipping" thing that for other people is funny. Cow issue? This was not a child, bastards were caught, cow is fine. Keep in mind cattle routinely have exams, artificial insemination, and all that requires tools much larger than a man's penis- be CERTAIN the offenders have teeny penises- cows have large orifices. The cow probably not injured, but distressed. Cow molesting is icky, but not even CLOSE to rape of a human. Life is more joyful for you if you can remain less affected/wounded by things you read. You can stop reading. No one has injured you personally. You are not a victim. You cannot make this thread less awesome, you will not destroy the fun we've had or kill the bright humor and grateful laughs that were generated and needed. You can be outraged but DO SOMETHING USEFUL..help kids and protect cows. Or be butthurt. (It's called being "butthurt", don't be butthurt about that.) So, in closing..Sasha: go ahead and imagine yourself better than all of us..."The cream rises to the top" THAT can be you...I'm hanging with the curds."

@Grumpy Old Man and Stuart Benson : You were right the first time. I was "rolling of the floor"...It's an old world Italian thing. Most people wouldn't understand......

I still feel bad for the cow, but you are exactly right! Kudos!

I hate to bring this up, but that cow is laying like she is saying: "Jack, I want you to draw me like one of your French girls." Sorry....but now I can't see it any other way.............

Stuart Berson February 27, 2014 at 08:39 PM
The poor French Cow is sad, very sad since the 2 offending "Cow-pokers" Reid and Michael failed to hold her afterwards, call the next day, or even write once after they shot their protein laced load. Quel Dommage'

I mean when you look, really look, at the picture, she IS a fetching creature. Those eyelashes are KILLER long....
Lisbeth Allen February 28, 2014 at 05:56 PM
Cows are such sweet creatures. We abuse them so.
rubberband February 28, 2014 at 06:17 PM
John, I'd agree. All the cows I've met before were pretty mellow. But the bulls, not so much. They are wicked fast and can remember specific people.They are sorta angry and stabby.

Thanks for the laugh again.... But, really this is a tagic tail. They came from different families. For never was a story of more woe, than this of juliet and her romeo.
