Most bestiality is legal, declares Canada’s Supreme Court

“Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.”
—Leviticus 18:22-25

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.

Court documents disclose that DLW attempted to have the dog perform intercourse on the stepdaughter, but that ultimately failed.

DLW is serving a 16 year prison sentence. He brought the bestitality conviction to the court on appeal.

Justice Rosalie Abella was the lone dissenter, and had suggested that the court deny the appeal.

“Acts with animals that have a sexual purpose are inherently exploitative whether or not penetration occurs,” she wrote.

Representatives for Animal Justice, who brought the case to the Supreme Court, said the ruling should encourage Parliament to act on changing “outdated” laws that fail to protect the country’s animals.

“As of today, Canadian law gives animal abusers license to use animals for their own sexual gratification,” executive director of Animal Justice Camille Labchuk told The Independent via emailed statement. “This is completely unacceptable, contrary to societal expectations, and cannot be allowed to continue.”

Animal Justice implored Parliament to pass the Modernizing Animal Protections Act.

“This much-needed bill updates the animal offences in the Criminal Code,” Ms Labchuk added, “and closes this dangerous loophole to make it crystal clear that all forms of sexual activity between a person and an animal are unacceptable.”

    Gee and not one peep, woof, or neigh from P.E.T.A., or maybe they think this behavior is ethical!

    The depravity of fallen man knows no boundaries. see Rom. 1:18-32;.

    Have hope.

    Isa 56:1 ¶ Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.

    If I didn’t read it I wouldn’t believe it.

    A Canadian equivalent to PETA was very much involved. As animals can no longer rely on the once upon a time Christian morals of society to protect them from the depravities of man organizations like ‘Animal Justice’ may be their only hope.

    From above article: “Representatives for Animal Justice, who brought the case to the Supreme Court, said the ruling should encourage Parliament to act on changing “outdated” laws that fail to protect the country’s animals”

    Well that was a whole lot of way too much information for my poor brain Terry R.
    I think I’d rather just remain ignorant of the more specific details of sexual perverts.

    Hi Dale
    I Guess you missed the tongue and cheek of my reply.

    And while I’m sure the Animal Justice League has the best intentions, P.E.T.A. is a world wide organization and has still made no outcry. Representatives of Animal Justice is a Canadian registered charity.

    You might find the following article from their blog enlightening: Veganism is One Step Closer to Becoming a Human Right in Ontario

    I would expect this type of behavior from a country that does perverted things to “back ham” then calls it bacon.

    As for me I’ll invest in pork bellies.

    To get to the seriousness of this article. It is only a matter of time before the opinion of the world supports bestiality and other perversions. Just as the world once condemned Homosexuality and Lesbianism. We have seen these world views change to a progressive outlook upon all forms of deviancy. Again I urge people to read Romans 1:18-32;, Also Leviticus 18:22-30;.

    The whole LGBT (Still sound like a sandwich) thing has ushered in outlandish claims using science falsely called so, to promote their agenda. The decay of society is ripening and spreading like a wildfire. There are many arrests for bestiality world wide and the USA has a great many.

    This all comes down to the fact that we cannot legislate morality. As more and more people reject the Bible and instead follow secular humanism, the more man will separate himself from The Creator, opting instead to worship creation and in doing so become bigger fools that imagined.
