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.
