"Sheep Abuse" 

Euphemism of the day.

Interesting issue it brings up with whether the guy should be put on the sex offender list, though. I say yes, but I suppose there's some room for disagreement there. And there have been some problems with the lists as they've been applied where I line up on the other side.

There are some people who are, technically, sex offenders, but who nevertheless should not be placed on a public registry. For the lazy, the examples I've linked to above include homosexual men engaged in consensual sex prior to Lawrence and young men convicted of statutory rape in a "Romeo and Juliet"-type situation.

So a funny headline turned into a serious point. Go figure.
