Man accused of having sex with his dog
The Orlando Sentinel reports on the arrest of a man who is accused of having sex with a Whippet-mix named Silvy. According to the article, the dog's injuries were so severe she had to be euthanized. The article also notes that the man is being charged with animal abuse, presumably because of the severity of the dog's injuries, but stories like these point out the need for Florida to finally pass a law prohibiting bestiality. A bill has been brought up during the past two legislative sessions, but lawmakers have failed to pass it. (See post here from the 2008 session).
