Proposal to include zoophilia in the Criminal Code

2014.02.06

Recently an initiative has been presented by Laia Ortiz, deputee of La Izquierda Plural (The Plural Left) and representative of the Asociación Parlamentaria en Defensa de los Animales (Parliamentary Association in the Defense of Animals, Apdda), in the Congress of Deputies with the goal of asking the Government about the possibility of including zoophilia in the Criminal Code with sentences that would be up to three years in prison.

For this, zoophilia is proposed to be considered animal abuse. This has already been made a crime in other counties in the European Union, such as Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, France, Switzerland and Sweden.
