MUNSON – Pennsylvania state police served a search warrant Saturday after reports of animal abuse in Clearfield County.

According the official, the three men have been having sexual intercourse with animals.

District attorney Bill Shaw said the charges are part of an ongoing investigation into the abuse of animals.

“This is an unpleasant topic, but the facts are that we received a report of folks having sexual intercourse with animals, farm animals,” Shaw said.

On Saturday morning - state police moved into action for at a home in Munson.

Three men were arrested: Terry Wallace, 41, Matt Brubaker, 32, and Marc Measnikoff, 34.

“They will be charged with sexual abuse of an animal, corruption of minors, reckless endangering another person,” Shaw said.

Police recovered several semi-automatic weapons at the home.

The district attorney said there was also a minor at the home, but they don't believe they were abused or involved. They are still investigating to be sure, officials said.

“So I’ve been doing this for over 20 years and this is probably the worse situation of this type of case that I’ve come across,” Shaw said.

Officials said sheep, cows, horses, dogs and other farm animals at a makeshift farm were involved.

“The animals are being removed from the farm is my understanding,” Shaw said. “And we’re finding appropriate shelters for those animals.”

According to Shaw, those complaints for the three men were filed early Saturday. Bail for the trio has set at $100,000 straight and they are scheduled for appear in court Aug. 22.
