Controversy of Mr. Hands- Kenneth Pinyan
Kenneth Pinyan came to the limelight with the Enumclaw’s Horse Sex Case. Accordingly, he is also known as Mr. Hands.
Kenneth moved to Oak Harbor from Washington and built his new house with a massive farm, including horses, on the Key Peninsula Highway in Gig Harbor. He was about to start taking payments from the Mortgage of his property.
Around the same time, he had a motorcycle accident that changed his ability to experience sensations. As can be seen, he started extreme sexual activities like anal sex with a horse after being introduced to a group of Men online named Zoos in the 2000s.
The men used to have sex with a horse on the property of Michael Tait, the taxi driver. The property was 5 miles to the northwest of the city of Enumclaw and covered a 40-acre farm.
On one specific night, the horse was not receptive to their actions; this made them move to the barn at 444th street farm to the southeast. They frequently visited the location for sexual purposes previously.
They penetrated the Stallion Horse named Big Dick and filmed each other as they anally got penetrated by the same horse (They had three people in the group; one was Kenneth, the other was Michael Tait, and the 3rd person was unidentified).
They continue their sexual activity for an extended period, and this is how Kenneth got internal Injuries. An unknown man dropped him out of the Community Hospital of Enumclaw on July 2, 2005.
He was shifted from the Vehicle to the Examination Room. But unfortunately, Kenneth was already dead by then.
According to the Office of Medical Examinations, his death was an accident, and he died of acute Peritonitis.
After the death of Kenneth Pinyan
Belatedly to Kenneth’s death, the authorities used his driving license and surveillance camera footage to track his family and companions. Then they went to the Enumclaw Area’s farm because the incident took place there.
The area specifically was known as the destination for Zoophile chat rooms, which encouraged people to have sex with their livestock. The police raided the area and found numerous video footage featuring Kenneth before his death.
Later it was stated that the horse had nothing to do with Kenneth’s death. The legal authorities then wished to punish Kenneth’s companions and charge them for animal abuse. Still, the legality of bestiality was an issue in the state of Washington.
The proof of animal abuse was found in the video footage. In addition, there was no law for human intercourse with a horse. As a result, Michael Tait was charged for Trespassing only.
The news was unpleasant and inhumane; hence, no newspaper company was up for reporting it. But as the case involved a significant number of people in it, The Seattle Times decided to write about the issue.
Sentencing and Charges
Michale Tait was charged with first-degree Trespassing. Still, the 3rd unidentified had no charges and sentences because of no visible proof. Michael, later on, made an Alford request through the form of a guilty plea and was given the order of suspension for one year.
Further, he was charged a USD 300 fine and a day of community service. He also got orders never to revisit the farm.
After this, he moved to Maury County, Tennessee, on a farm owned by Kenny Thomas. The farm-raised several horses, pigs, goats, and dogs.
Christy D. Morris, a woman, associated with Michael and Kenny, was arrested and charged three counts of animal cruelty on October 13, 2009. The investigators had received a photo anonymously through the mail, and they arrested Michael and Kenny on the same day.
Michael Tait was charged with 3 counts of animal cruelty, and Kenny Thomas for 2 counts of animal cruelty. They were later pleaded guilty and placed on probation in January of 2010.

The legislation passed an enactment bill, which prohibited both bestiality and videotaping & recording of such acts due to this incident. Currently, it is a Class C Felony and is punishable by up to 5 years of prison.
The co-writer of the documentary film, Charles Mudede, commented that the men had trained the horses to penetrate them by applying horse breeding pheromone & bending over. It had nothing to do with their love for horses or solely the horses.
They just had a sexual fixation on large penises, he added. Again in 2015, he wrote that the inhabitants of Enumclaw are still unwilling to accept the news or the case, which depicts that the case gave them great shock and anger.
