A Portland woman who bought a horse, killed it, gutted it and posed naked for photos inside the carcass broke no laws, Oregon authorities decided.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

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

And she says she can't understand people's interest in her. "No idea why people care," Jasha Lottin, 21, told Seattle Weekly, which published photos that she had posted on the Internet.

Lottin and her boyfriend had taken over care of the 32-year-old horse, which they said was in declining health, KOIN-TV reported. They told Washington County sheriff's deputies that they shot it near Portland with a rifle and gutted it, then Lottin stripped and climbed inside. She also posed outside of it, covered in its blood, and with parts of the horse's organs.

She posted the photos on the Internet, and a man in North Carolina who came across them reported them to deputies, the Weekly reported.

Lottin reportedly told investigators that they wanted to humanely kill the horse and eat it — and she wanted to feel what it would be like to be inside the dead horse.

Investigators decided the couple had violated no laws. But Lottin's mother said her daughter has received death threats, KOIN reported.
