U.S. Federal Ban for Beastiality

In the United States, beastiality, (sex with animals), is illegal in only 31 states.

17 states make beastiality a felony. They are: Alaska, Arizona, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Virginia and Washington.

14 states consider it a misdemeanor, those being: Arkansas, California, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Utah and Wisconsin.

That means the remaining 19 states, and DC, have no laws prohibiting this type of animal abuse.

Enact a law that makes beastiality a federal felony and protects animals in all 50 states from sexual preditors that believe sex without consent is acceptable. It isn't. It's rape.
