Zoophilia is unacceptible.

The goal of this petition is to draw awareness to New York State laws regarding sexual assault or misconduct involving any kind of animal. Currently the charge for this crime is a "misconduct charge," and is considered a Class A misdemeanor. The possible punishment for zoophilia includes $1000 fine at most and up to a year in jail. However the typical punishment is $200 and no jail time. Rarely is restitution paid to a farmer of producing animals or owner of a domestic animal. New York state's zoophilia law was passed in 1613. However, due to recent events in both Hamilton and Suffolk counties, a revision is clearly needed. New York nor any place should not tolerate animal abuse of any kind. Animals do not have a voice and it is up to us to protect them.

  • Kristen Hall Female animals cannot give consent, and it is dangerous for a woman to have sex with a male animal, as we have seen from a woman in Ireland who died of an allergic reaction to dog semen.

  • MARINA MURPHY This is just so Evil and so Disgusting beyond words and it so needs to be stopped NOW!!! No animals should endure this despicable, abnormal cruelty and suffering by the sick, perverted members of the so called human race!!!! Animals do not have a voice to speak up for this horrendous abuse so it is up to us to do it for them!!! Please, I urge you, to increase the penalty for such abuse towards an innocent animal from the present mild 'misconduct charge' to the Class A misdeanor!!! Emergency action needs to be taken to show the sick and evil capable of such horrors that such behaviour will NOT EVER EVER be tolerated!! Please, I beg you, to act NOW and please save and protect these poor, helpless, defenceless souls!
