Anti-Bestiality Bill Comes Roaring Back; Animal Sex a Topic for Senate Committee
Looks like the zoophiles we interviewed for this New Times feature didn't convince Sen. Nan Rich. The Sunrise-based state legislator has re-introduced a bill that would make it a crime for a human being to have sex with an animal.
Last year, though, her bill's first draft made human-animal sex a felony. It was watered down to a misdemeanor, before ultimately stalling out in a legislative session dominated by a horrific budget crunch and the gambling compact with the Seminoles. This one starts as a misdemeanor, as you can see from the bill text.
Tomorrow the bill is scheduled to come up for discussion in the Senate's criminal justice committee.
