Law enforcement officials are searching for other victims after the arrest of a Bucks County, Pennsylvania man who sexually abused a 9-year-old boy while dressed up as an animal in a twisted child sex ring.

Kenneth Fenske, 57, along with at least four other suspects dressed in animal costumes, attacked the boy — who is related to one of the suspects although police have refused to clarify the relation — and wore a red fox costume as he raped the child.

Fenske was taken into custody on Friday, while the other suspects involved in the chld sex ring case have already been arrested. Their apprehensions, which began in June 2016, have taken place across Pennsylvania and Virginia.

“Our investigation is not done, and it is likely there will be more arrests,” said Attorney General Josh Shapiro in an interview with FOX 43. “We believe there could be more victims from this ring of abuse.”

Charges filed against the suspects include multiple counts of child rape, possession of child pornography, and statutory sexual assault.

It has been reported that the child is in foster care and is receiving therapy.

While furries — which are individuals who prefer to dress up in mascot-like outfits — are not intrinsically sexual, Attorney General Shapiro alleges that these men had been harassing the child since 2009.

“This is a horrendous case,” Shapiro added. “It is disturbing to me not only as attorney general of Pennsylvania but as a father. We care about this victim and all victims of sexual abuse.”
