A group of three pals convicted of raping farm animals will spend decades behind bars for their horrendous crimes.
Farmers Matthew Brubaker, 32, Marc Measnikoff, 36, and Terry Wallace, 42, filmed themselves having sex with horses, goats, dogs and a cow, even recruiting a teenage boy for help, investigators said.
The sick trio lived in rundown trailers on a farm near Munson, Pennsylvania, where they engaged in bestiality with their own animals over four to five years, Penn Live reported.
The teen boy tasked with helping the men told detectives how they had him take the animal of their choice and drop it into a specially designed chute where the men raped them.
He also told police that he was lured into their farm when asked for his help in caring for the creatures before being ordered to participate in the abuse, investigators said.
Authorities busted the animal abuse ring after the boy reported it in 2018.

The teen was taken into protective custody once the farmers' depraved operation was shut down.
In their hearing at the Pennsylvania Superior Court last Thursday, Brubaker, Measnikoff, and Wallace failed to argue that their prison sentences were too harsh.
President Judge Emeritus John Bender presented the opinion given by the court which upheld the farmers' 20-41-year prison sentences.
The defendants insisted that Judge Paul Cherry, who originally sentenced them to jail, ignored their rehabilitation needs.
All three had pleaded guilty in Clearfield County court to charges of corruption of minors, 730 counts of sexual intercourse with animals, and 730 counts of cruelty to animals.
Cherry said he'd given the men long sentences to allow Meansikoff "adequate time to work on his mental health through treatment and time to refrain from said acts."

Cherry added that in the case of Meansikoff, “a long incarceration will allow (him) adequate time to work on his mental health through treatment and time to refrain from said acts so that he may become a healthy, law abiding, and productive member of society."
Bender agreed with Cherry that the three are at a place where they need to be in order to get treatment for the mental illnesses that caused them to commit their crimes.
Bender wrote: "Their punishments are even more just because the men 'exposed a minor child to (their) abhorrent offences for years on end'."
