Police say two men have been arrested after a central New York farmer discovered that his cows were being sexually abused.

News outlets reported Friday that a farmer in Herkimer, near Utica, noticed his cows appeared anxious and failed to produce milk. He installed video surveillance equipment to try to determine why.

The farmer contacted state police after watching the footage and discovering the animals were being abused.

Police said two men in their 30s were arrested after one agreed to videotape the other attempting sexual contact with several cows. One man didn't immediately return a phone message left Saturday at his home in Ilion. Police said the other man has no known address.

Both were arrested on misdemeanor sexual misconduct charges and released with appearance tickets.
