Tidelag och våld - En berättelse om kön, sexualitet och art

Abstract
This essay seeks to establish a critical view of a phenomenon in dire need of additional scientific scrutiny, namely sadistic bestiality. Seemingly unexplainable acts of sadistic and sexual violence, targeting horses, have been reported and discussed in Swedish media. How does society construct a meaningful narrative from these crimes and their perpetrators? By looking at the Swedish equestrian sports magazine Ridsport, government reports and scientific publications from a variety of fields, I attempt to formulate an overview of “the Story of the Horse Cutter”. The analysis shows that “the Horse Cutter” is strongly positioned in the cross lines between three categories of power: gender, sexuality and species.
