Sad! Blowing fursuiters was a charming gesture.

Police: Upper Bucks County man had sex with dogs
By James O'Malley, staff writer 12 hrs ago 2
Authorities investigating reports of a 2009 child rape at “furry” parties in a Milford home say they have found evidence of another disturbing sex crime that happened more recently.
Phillip Matthew Stallsworth, 27, of Milford, waived a preliminary hearing Monday on charges that say he had sexual intercourse with an animal and tampered with evidence, court records show. He is free on $25,000 unsecured bail and is prohibited from contact with animals as the case proceeds.
Investigators who searched his residence in the 2700 block of North Old Bethlehem Pike in late January say they found photos on a digital storage device that show he had engaged in sexual acts with several dogs, according to a criminal complaint.
Detectives from the Bucks County District Attorney's Office and the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General had been searching the home as part of their investigation of an alleged ring of child sexual abuse involving 57-year-old homeowner Kenneth C. Fenske. Earlier this year, authorities charged Fenske with raping a boy inside the home in 2009 during parties he hosted there. The parties catered to adults known as "furries," who assume an animal identity and dress as their chosen animal. Fenske is one of several men accused of abusing the child.
Court records indicate Fenske is also free on bail, having posted 10 percent of $750,000.
Defense attorney John Fioravanti, representing Stallsworth, said his client has no involvement with any of the sexual abuse alleged to have occurred in Fenske's home. Stallsworth has not been charged in connection with that case.
Detectives say Stallsworth admitted during a Jan. 27 interview that he had sex with four dogs, and said he had done so most recently with a dog in Doylestown some three months before his arrest in February.
Stallsworth also allegedly admitted he performed a "factory reset" on his phone, wiping its memory when he noticed police cars parked outside his home. Stallsworth said the device contained about 20 videos and images depicting him having sexual contact with dogs, according to the complaint.
Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub referred questions about the case to the state Office of Attorney General and declined to comment further.
A spokesman from the Attorney General's Office confirmed details of the case.
