Stop Sexual Abuse of Animals: Make Bestiality a Crime

Target: U.S. Congress

Bestiality, or engaging in sexual acts with animals, is a very severe form of animal abuse. However, bestiality is considered a felony in only seventeen US states. Fourteen states consider bestiality a misdemeanor, of which include Arkansas, California, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Utah and Wisconsin. Nineteen states do not even consider bestiality a crime against animals. These states are Alabama, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Montana, Texas, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming.

A recent appalling case included three pit bull puppies who had been sexually abused in North Carolina. Various objects, including metal screws, had been placed into their rectums, which caused intestinal perforations. Sadly, one of the puppies, named Charity, had later died as a result of her injuries. The other puppies, named Faith and Hope, have each had four surgeries due to their injuries.

The state in which the puppies came from, North Carolina, does not consider bestiality illegal. As a result, their owner will not face any consequences for his actions. Anyone who commits these despicable acts against animals should face the appropriate consequences to show that animal abuse will not be tolerated in the United States.

Help speak for those who cannot speak for themselves and tell U.S. legislators to pass “Charity’s Law”, which would make bestiality a felony in all U.S. states.


Dear U.S. Congress,

I encourage that you pass “Charity’s Law’, which will make the sexual abuse of animals (bestiality) a felony in all 50 U.S. states. So far, only 17 states consider bestiality a felony, while the rest consider it a misdemeanor or not a crime against animals at all.

However, I feel that by making bestiality a felony in all states, it can help play a major part in stopping sexual abuse against animals. In turn, the United States can be an example for other countries as well, by helping to convey that animal abuse of any type is unacceptable.

Thousands of animals are suffering right now because of abuse at the hands of people. As a result, I strongly request that you pursue “Charity’s Law” and help stop animal abuse in the United States.

    Why is petition not delivered? This is unbelievable, our government is so ignorant, to even consider this a misdemeanor!!

  2. That is discusting! My health teach was talking about sexual behavior and beastiality came up, so I’m trying to look up information on how it affects the poor animal, but in my searches I see more things about promoting beastiality and how it’s not really considered important than banning it and punishing the abuser, which is disturbing. Poor animals shouldn’t have to be raped by these sinful monsters. I’ve seen comments on how they say rape is no different that killing animals for meat and here are my replies to that:
    #1. I’m pretty sure most people in the U.S. don’t eat dogs, cats, and horeses, so that’s irrelevant.
    #2 Now for animals that we do eat. Atleast when they are killed the animal only suffers for a second and that’s it, but with rape that is abusing one animal multiple times, over and over and over. In all honesty if I was being raped and there were no laws to protect me, I rather die than go through that torture for the rest of my life.

    Such disgusting bunches of worthless human molecules should be raped to death, it is just useless and a potencial danger to society; we have to remove our human trash from the surface of this earth!

    North Carolina, animals are not here for sexploitation of any kind. They were not created to give human beings sexual stimulation or pleasure regardless of the use of them during man’s reckless past. Please make bestiality illegal. It is degrading , dangerous and lacks respect to the animal. It is rape plain and simple. The animal does not have any means of power to get out of the situation.
    They cannot speak or fight of the person(s) doing this.
    It is an atrocity and your state should think long and hard about making bestiality a felony.

  5. There are some behaviors that must be stopped. This is animal cruelty and hopefully other states will find it illegal as what appears to be the majority. What is wrong with people?
