A man accused of having sex with a goat was scheduled to be arraigned Friday on an animal cruelty charge. Charging papers say a witness saw 63-year-old Arthur Lawton having sex with a goat May 8 in a barn at Eatonville's Pioneer Farm Museum, where he worked.

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Lawton said he was trying to milk the goat.

Lawton missed a scheduled arraignment on Aug. 3 but turned himself in Thursday night to Pierce County sheriff's deputies.

He's the second person charged in the county since the Legislature made bestiality a crime in response to the fatal injury to a man having sex with a horse in Enumclaw.

A man accused of having sex with the family pit bull dog was acquitted in May.
