Oh Cool, Beastiality is Now Illegal in Ohio

In case you missed it, it’s now very illegal in Ohio for people to engage in beastiliaty. Why is this news? Because the state didn’t actually have anti-bestiality laws until the change took effect last week.

The legislation gained enough votes to pass in December when it was incorporated into a bill that bars local jurisdictions from raising the minimum wage or regulating pet stores.

Those that engage in beastiality could face up to 90 days in jail and have the animal seized and impounded. They also could be ordered to undergo psychological evaluation or counseling.

Rep. Jim Hughes, from Upper Arlington, who sponsored the anti-bestiality measure with fellow Republican Sen. Jay Hottinger, has described bestiality as “sickening and perverse.”

He then gave the best quote of all time,

“We don’t want Ohio to be the place you can come and have sex with an animal,” he said.
