Florida Legislator Introduces Bill To Prevent "Goat Rape"

A Florida legislator wants to introduce a law prohibiting bestiality.

Sen. Nan Rich is putting forward a bill (SB 448) that would make it a third degree felony to have sex with an animal. It's an issue that has gained attention after a series of goat rapes in the Panhandle town of Mossy Head.

Right now, people who have sex with animals can be charged with animal cruelty, but prosecutors have to prove animals were injured because of the act.

Rich wants to make sure defendants can't win their cases for lack of that proof.

    Florida has one of the highest illegal populations in our Nation. They bring with them third world mentality, which is totally acceptable behavior in their countries of origin. Allowing this invasion of our country and having to endure this type of sickening behavior is now what we've reduced ourselves to. We can thank our leaders in Washington and the pro amnesty/open borders groups for successfully turning our country into a lawless third world cesspool. Taco wagons on every street corner, Saturday night cock fights and loud Mariachi music filling the air will soon be our way of life here. Stay tuned for more to come...at a neighborhood near you. Welcome to the "new" America and don't forget to press 1 for English.

    Well, I was elected president of the new Goat and Sheep Society. Really close election so I only won by a hoof. Since Ank has clarified it for me, as a society, we claim to be a race, a sex and a religion. All of the above and we want our rights to practice in public in front of children. We took a vote and think the humans that participate in the society, should be allowed to be naked like our sheep and goat counterparts. It just isn't fair. We have also come up with whether we consent with it or not, one hoof, no, two hoofs, yes. Marriage if we get a head butt. So, its all figured out, where are our rights? We think we should be able to cross dress like humans sometimes and flaunt our stuff like a bunch of loons. Where are our rights?
