ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - An Ipswich man accused of bestiality has pleaded not guilty to six felony charges and requested a trial by judge rather than a jury.

The American News reports that 56-year-old James Schumacher is accused of engaging in sexual acts with two calves. He was arrested in July after a Bath-area farmer reported finding a man with one of his animals.

Each count against Schumacher carries a maximum punishment of two years in prison and a $4,000 fine.
