Bestiality Alert: Animal Sex (Finally) Illegal in Florida

By May 7, 2011

Follow me on:

Tomas Bautista Mug Shot Earlier this year, I made a little joke when this man, Tomas Bautista, was arrested and accused of having sex with a roommate's chihuahua in Florida..

"And speaking of jokes that almost write themselves," I wrote. "Animal sex is not actually against the law in Florida -- so Bautista has been charged with animal cruelty instead.

Well, let the word go out to zoophiliacs from Miami to Tallahassee: Your kind is no longer welcome in the Sunshine State.

The state has finally past a law banning animal sex -- and believe it or not, making bestiality illegal did not come easily.

As Jason Linkins writes at the Huffington Post, state senator Nancy Rich has been trying since 2009 -- and it's taken three ties to finally pass the bill, which now goes to Gov. Rick Scott for approval.

Of course, there's a group of people who think Gov. Scott looks like Lord Voldemort, so his signature may not be a slam-dunk.
