“Any form of bestiality should be made illegal. An animal cannot converse, thereby cannot give it’s consent in anyway whats so ever!! So it’s clear to me that is the same as rape, no verbal communication can be given! It’s time the law was changed & these sicko’s brought to justice for such actions!”

I have gotten used to being disappointed by government but today’s shocking decision by the Supreme Court legalizing some types of bestiality leaves me speechless
The Supreme Court upheld the acquittal of a BC man on charges of bestiality, stemming from sexual abuse involving one of his daughters and the family dog. The reason for the acquittal was because the court deemed bestiality to have “a well-established legal meaning and refers to sexual intercourse between a human and an animal.” In other words, it only applies in the case of penetration and not to any other type of non-penetrative sexual activity.
“Please let’s not forget the daughter, she will have to live with this for life!”
In the 6-1 decision, the sole voice of reason was Justice Rosalie Abella who wrote:
“Acts with animals that have a sexual purpose are inherently exploitative whether or not penetration occurs.” Unfortunately her colleagues didn’t agree. Now it falls to Parliament to change the law to include both types of sexual activity.
This loophole was exposed last year when the case was sent to the Supreme Court. It is mystifying why Parliament wouldn’t have dealt with it immediately. Instead it appears to be slowed down as part of an omnibus bill that was introduced into the Parliament back in February. What’s going on? My producer wrote to the Justice Department to find out.

I’m a Producer for Afternoons with Danielle Smith on News Talk 770 Radio Calgary. I am wanting to know if we could get a statement on this latest ruling from the Supreme Court on Bestiality and if there will be any movement from the Justice Minister on rectifying this issue. Here’s a link to the story.
Are you kidding me?
Fixing this section of the act requires a revision to the Criminal Code to enshrine a broader definition for bestiality. It only takes one sentence to clarify the law. The Supreme Court ruling so offends community values I have no doubt it would pass through both the House of Commons and the Senate in five seconds. It doesn’t “deserve careful study”. It doesn’t need “broad consultations with Canadians.” It just needs Parliament to do its job. Just get it done.
If you agree I suggest you contact Justice Minister Jody Wilson Raybould to let her know exactly how you feel.
