TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida lawmakers have finally approved a law against bestiality after years of inaction.
The bill (SB 344) was approved 115-0 by the Florida House on Wednesday. The Senate had unanimously approved it in March. It now goes to Gov. Rick Scott to sign into law.
The state previously had no law specifically prohibiting sexual contact between humans and animals.
An infamous case arose in 2005 when prosecutors had difficulty bringing charges against a blind Tallahassee man accused of having sex with his guide dog.
