Supreme Court ruling decriminalizes some forms of bestiality
In a devastating 6-1 ruling last week, the Supreme Court of Canada rejected the notion that bestiality encompasses all sexual activity with animals and has said it is restricted to penetration. This legal loophole will remain open, making animals vulnerable to other forms of sexual abuse, unless Parliament chooses to act.
Following is a link to the CBC news site where the background story for this Supreme Court decision is described. The article is disturbing:
It seems perverse in 2016 that a teenager and a dog should be victims of such heinous deeds. Both were criminal acts and should be prosecuted as such. The laws desperately need to be changed. Please go to change.org (see link below) and sign the petition. Your name will make a difference.
