Week of 3/6/17

On Tuesday, activists and advocates for animals rallied in the Rotunda. If you missed it, here are two news media accounts.

Meanwhile in Texas, city officials in Amarillo are considering a measure that would impose a $200 fine plus veterinary expenses upon someone convicted of raping an animal. Baby steps?

In Georgia, where it is already a crime to sexually assault animals, a landscaper is facing a felony charge for raping his customer’s dog.

And a side-note: it emerged this week that John Finnis, the Oxford law professor who captivated a young Neil Gorsuch (Trump’s Supreme Court nominee) likened same-sex intimacy to bestiality. No word on whether this might inspire the Kentucky General Assembly to finally outlaw sex with animals.
