Canada's bestiality law only bans sexual acts that involve penetration, the country's Supreme Court ruled on Thursday, a blow to advocacy groups who argued animals should be afforded the same protection from exploitation that humans are given.
Supreme Court judges ruled in favor of a man from British Columbia in western Canada convicted for sexual assault and bestiality after he involved the family dog in the abuse of his stepdaughters.
The man, known only by the initials "D.L.W." to protect his stepdaughters' identity, then successfully appealed his bestiality conviction in a provincial court, arguing that according to the law, the offense of bestiality requires penetration, which his actions did not involve.
The crown had argued the definition of bestiality included all sex acts. D.L.W. was originally convicted of 13 offences involving his stepdaughters, including one charge of bestiality, and is currently serving a 16-year prison sentence.

Let me guess there's going to be another social rights movement in support of people who love animals and want to have sex with them. They will label it as a legitimate, disease or genetic disorder to excuse it. Everyone will be forced to accept it. Then the same will happen with Pedophelia. This world is sick. a reply to: gladtobehere

Now... are we talking about the animal penetrating the human or vice versa? Or both?
Because, I mean, if most sex acts involving animals are gonna fly, we kinda need to get into specifics, right?
