Bill that would make bestiality a felony reintroduced in Florida Legislature

TBO reports that Sen. Nan Rich, D-Sunrise, and Rep. William Snyder, R-Stuart, have reintroduced a bill that would make bestiality a felony crime. A similar bill stalled in committee last year. The article notes that Rich pointed to the link between animal abuse and child abuse as an important reason to enact the law. A link to the Senate Bill (SB 448) is available at the Florida Senate's website here. The House Bill (HB 273) is available at the Florida House website here.

Who do we write to voice support of this bill?

This also needs to be published in some of the larger papers, like the Orlando Sentinel and Tampa Tribune.
