Good News Everyone: Bestiality Just Became Officially Illegal In Ohio

Bad news for animal lovers in Ohio: The state’s bestiality ban officially went into effect on Tuesday, the Dayton Daily News reports.

The Ohio General Assembly passed the ban in December, following failed attempts in 2011 and 2015. Under the law, bestiality is now a second degree misdemeanor punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a $750 fine. Anyone found guilty will lose custody of their animal and could be ordered to undergo a psychological evaluation.

“I think this is something that is sickening and perverse and we don’t want Ohio to be the place you can come and have sex with an animal,” State Senator Jim Hughes told the Daily News.

Somewhat surprisingly, bestiality remains legal in eight states and Washington D.C.
