Denmark has said that it will ban sex with animals because the practice is “damaging the country’s reputation” and also because it’s “non-consensual”. Of late there has been a surge in animal brothels in Denmark and the country has become a magnet for animal sex tourists, said a report.
The ban comes following an outcry over legal loopholes and also because sex with animals is banned everywhere else in Europe, the Mail online reported.
Danish Agricultural Minister Dan Jorgensen said he will outlaw the practice following mounting pressure from the international community.
“I have decided that we should ban sex with animals. This is because it constitutes an attack on the animal, which naturally cannot consent to sex,” the report quoted the minister as saying.
“It is also damaging to our country’s reputation to allow this practice to continue here while it is banned elsewhere,” he added.
A recent opinion poll by Gallup has revealed that 76 per cent of Danes supported a ban on animal sex.
The bill, which also requires changes in the country’s welfare animal laws, will be introduced by the Danish government in 2015.
Sexual intercourse between a person and an animal has been illegal in England since 1290, but many of our European neighbors including France, Germany, Belgium and Holland have only outlawed the practice in the last 10 years.
Sweden banned zoophilia, another term describing sex with animals, in April 2014.
In 2012 the same ban was passed in Germany.
Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government introduced the new law against the practice, saying animals should not be used “for personal sexual activities or made available to third parties for sexual activities thereby forcing them to behave in ways that are inappropriate to their species.’
Sex with animals is still legal in Finland, Hungary and Romania.
