Most bestiality is legal, declares Canada’s Supreme Court

12 Jun

Incredible.

Sex acts with animals are legal in Canada, so long as there is no penetration involved, according to a surprise ruling issued by the Supreme Court.

The determination stemmed from a case involving a British Columbia man convicted of 13 counts sexually assaulting his stepdaughters – including one count of bestiality. But the man, identified only as “DLW”, was acquitted of the bestiality count with the new ruling.

DLW’s attorneys argued that bestiality linked to “buggery” – or sodomy – with animals beginning with an 1892 criminal code. Bestiality was first used in a 1955 code, but still was not defined to encompass every sex act with animals.

“Although bestiality was often subsumed in terms such as sodomy or buggery, penetration was the essence – ‘the defining act’ – of the offence,” the court said.

Thus, the court ruled by a 7–1 majority that bestiality required penetration.

“There is no hint in any of the parliamentary record that any substantive change to the elements of the offence of bestiality was intended,” the ruling reads.

According to court record DLW smeared peanut butter on the genitals of his victims and had the family dog lick it off while he videotaped the act.

Let’s hope and pray that Parliament passes a law closing this legal loophole.

    The loophole exists so that farmers can harvest semen from breeding studs w/out breaking the law. That some faggots get off on a technicality does not mean we should hastily rewrite the law w/out thinking through the implications.

      Fair enough; in which case, we must have a better written law to protect that, while punishing freaks who are simply using animals for their pleasure.

    With the Trudeau Liberals holding a majority in the House, it is extremely unlikely that Parliament will do anything about this.
