Strange that it took this long.
As stated in the article below, this was necessary: “Rich took up the anti-bestiality fight after a number of cases involving sexual activity with animals in recent years, including a Panhandle man who was suspected of accidentally asphyxiating a family goat during a sex act and the abuse of a horse in the Keys. The bill would make such acts a first-degree misdemeanor.”
Good start but unfortunately it is only a misdemeanor. Let me translate – they care, but not really. Plus, if a sicko only sees a misdemeanor as the highest he’ll/she’ll get, they will take that risk. Make it a felony and the potential for bestiality goes down. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/06/florida-bestiality-law-passes-third-attempt_n_858884.html
