Sex with Animals Could Be Outlawed
No more sex with animals in Florida.
Humans having sex with animal could soon be outlawed in Florida.
The Senate unanimously passed a bill (SB 448) Tuesday that would make it a third degree felony for anyone to have sex with an animal.
The House has yet to debate the issue.
Florida is one of 16 states without a law banning bestiality.
If the bill is passed the a person convicted of bestiality could serve up to five years in prison, according the the Associated Press.
The bill is sponsored by Sen. Nan Rich, D-Weston.
According the the national Humane Society, several studies highlight a link between sexual assault of animal and sex crimes against humans.
