Ban Bestiality in New Hampshire

cow-by-Kabsik-Park

Target: Governor Margaret Hassan

Goal: Ban sexual assault against animals in New Hampshire.

A bill in New Hampshire set to explicitly ban bestiality has been met with vocal resistance from farming representatives. While New Hampshire does have animal cruelty laws, it is one of just 10 other states that does not have legislation specifically outlawing sexual assault on animals.

However, Commissioner of Agriculture Lorraine Merrill urged committee members to consider the consequences such legislation could have on normal animal husbandry practices. The bill would currently exempt just medical procedures and commercial farming, which omits people like subsistence farmers and those who might own a dairy cow or two, they argue. This statement is somewhat convoluted, as exempting medical procedures and commercial farming would mean they aren’t included in the bill. However, Ms. Merrill is stating this as though a bill targeted toward human sexual assault on animals should also cover animal breeding practices. In essence, these diversionary tactics are a way to confuse the audience and build support by making farmers feel targeted. As in the case with many other animal welfare resistances, this seems to be led primarily by New Hampshire’s Farm Bureau.

This bill is intended to allow officials to charge people who engage in sexual intercourse with animals with a B Felony and up to seven years in prison. As no legislation in New Hampshire currently addresses bestiality, people who commit it can only be sentenced to up to a year in prison. There is also the problem of doing irrevocable harm to the animal, which in many cases can be difficult to prove, but sexual assault can more easily be addressed when leveling charges.

Do not allow people to be confused and resistance to be incited by people seeking to confuse farmers and further their own ends. Currently, New Hampshire is a go-to point for people partaking of bestiality. Jeremy Hoffman, a Virginia detective who specializes in cases of bestiality has said, “one internet forum had 194 separate advertisements as of last week, with more than 650 responses. Two threads specifically dealt with the need to kill Rogers’s legislation.” He has also claimed that farmers should not be affected by legislation targeting bestiality, as bestiality has nothing to do with animal husbandry and commercial farming.

Sign to urge Governor Hassan to pass this bill and offer more protection to animals. Do not allow this bill to be killed because of misinformation.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Governor Hassan,

Recently a bipartisan bill to explicitly outlaw bestiality in New Hampshire and make it a B Felony has hit a roadblock of opposition. This seems to primarily be coming from farmer representatives and the New Hampshire Farm Bureau. According to them, the fact that this bill does not cover husbandry and animal veterinary care in regards to breeding assistance makes this an attack on farmers. According to misleading statements made, the language of the bill poses a threat to New Hampshire farmers, rather than keeping animals safe. It should be noted their statements seem to completely disregard the other 40 or more states who have bestiality laws and no problems with vets or farmers breeding livestock being charged for assisting births and breeding.

Forums on the internet have shown New Hampshire to be a go-to state for people partaking in bestiality, with as many as 194 separate advertisements on one or two forums as of the end of February 2016 and over 650 responses. This is evidence of a severe problem in New Hampshire regarding animal welfare. While perhaps statements exempting legitimate breeding practices would help ease worries, the bill should not be killed entirely.

Please, don’t allow Farm Bureau and misinformation to shut down a bill that New Hampshire animals desperately need.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Folks I think there is something more important here at stake and not the questioning of whether bestiality is right or wrong. To me, obviously it is wrong! But, I fear that the bill may lack some provisions leaving loop holes in it. I understand that the farmers, big or small, are worried that normal husbandry practices may be viewed as bestiality. I think there should be no exemptions in this bill. Anyone engaging in bestiality should be found guilty under this law…no exceptions. I think bestiality should be clearly defined in this bill. I can’t imagine what sort of normal husbandry practices would be considered bestiality as I understand the act to be. So what are the farmers worried about? So before signing this petition I would want more clarification. It is just too general for me to stand by it. Any law rather than no law is wrong…it needs to be the right law to be effective. Obviously the topic garners support…who would support bestiality except sickos? But when it comes to making laws we need to be very careful of the wording.

    • Agree! And where the hell does
      Husbandry come up in the topic in the first place?!! Crazy!! What does it mean?

  2. COME ON PEOPLE… IT IS COMMON SENSE… THAT normal husbandy is not bestiality. look up the word in the dictionary there is a huge difference and we must protect animals from perverts that do horrible things to innocent animals and it is legal and it must be stopped.

    PROTECT ANIMALS FROM THE MONSTERS WHO DO HORRIBLE AND APPALLING THINGS TO ANIMALS.

    • Agree! And where the hell does
      Husbandry come up in the topic in the first place?!! Crazy!! What does it mean? Yes we need to protect the animals innocents as much or more than Children!

    IT’S EVERY BIT THE SAME AS RAPISTS THAT RAPE HUMANS!! These are GROTESQUE RAPISTS–EVEN SICKER AND MORE DERANGED THAN HUMAN RAPISTS. These animal abusing perverts are capable of the MOST BASE, DISGUSTING, VIOLATING ACTS OF SEXUAL EXPLOITATION AND PERVERIONS AND SHOULD BE CONSIDERED EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AND THESE MONSTERS HAVE TOTAL DISREGARD OF ANYTHING MORAL AND DECENT. THE PAIN, PHYSICAL DAMAGE AND HARM THEY CAUSE TOTALLY INNOCENT CREATURES REVEALS SADISTIC TRAITS THAT SHOW HOW INTENSELY EVIL THEY ARE. THEY SHOULD BE LOCKED UP FOR LIFE UNTIL THEY BURN FOREVER IN HELL!! CAN’T THE JUDGES AND LAW ENFORCEMENT SEE THIS REALITY???

  4. Marcio Alvarez says:

    Another typical example of degenerate human filth, bring the inquisition back, gather the green woods and light them up. Abhorrent organisms that do this deserve this type of torturous extinction for their crimes on innocent Creatures. Paedophiles that they are!

  5. That’s it! FARMERS/VETS CAN HIDE THEMSELVES BEHIND THEIR DISGUSTING AND INHUMANE BREEDING TO ANIMALS! ALSO CAN DO EVERYTHING THEY WANT TO THESE ANIMALS AFTER ALREADY SO ABUSED! NOBODY COMES TO CHECK IN FACT!BUT WE KNOW HOW IT WORKS!BAN BESTIALITY ALL AROUND THE WORLD AND IN THIS STATE ESPECIALLY! FOR ALL SICKOS! NO MATTER THE SPECIES! JAIL FOREVER! I can’t stand this, Kill The Monsters! #OPBeast!
    We’re the voice for these Animals who must not FACE THIS!

    Bestiality ALSO occurs among dogs…..several dogs lately have been found with badly prolapsed vaginas and rectums, with necrotic tissue (rotten tissue) hanging outside of their bodies……think of A CHILD raped by an adult man>>>that is what it is equivalent to…..

    One of the dogs was taken by a Rescue to NYC to see dog surgeon specialists, but she died of cardiac arrest during the surgery…..

    Bestiality is legal in several nations in Europe. It is more prevalent HERE than most people realize, and it is cruel, inhumane, and often causes the death of the dog.

    • Thank You for bringing this point to the fore.
      Sad sad sad.
      Mankind has depleted into a bunch of heathens.
      GODS LAWS just do not matter and are just not being respected anymore… to the detriment of humankind.

    Most of us know bestiality is sick and wrong, but my comment
    here is mostly about the farmers…. They are worried that
    their husbandry practices might be “misconstrued,” and yes,
    I can sometimes see why…. If you read about the forcible
    semination of cows and turkeys and pigs, to some of us that
    might not be actual bestiality, but it is rape — if you
    are someone who considers animals to be valuable beings who
    should not be forced into pregnancy after pregnancy, (with
    their babies taken away), all for the dollar income of
    farmers…. (or puppy mills and other forced breeding
    practices)…. No, I don’t eat meat or dairy products,
    so I try not to support all of this forced breeding, but it also comes down to your viewpoint…. Farmers feel they have a right to force-breed animals, because they make a living from it, and animals to them are mostly machines…. But where do we draw the line, because when people are also allowed to do this with puppy mills, it just seems too unregulated, and then when you get into fur farms and canned hunting farms, where animals are “speed-bred” as they call it, how can that be right, especially when the animals are
    just bred to be killed (and not humanely, either)? It
    truly is like child prostitution, if you believe that
    animals are just as innocent and vulnerable as human
    children, targets of exploitation and not able to consent? Some of us simply do not believe that animals are machines, and they deserve to be treated as living beings, not just
    objects with a dollar value….

    • After seeing these practices of you know males joining their power over farm animals as Cows , I was so disgusted it goes right through a females Body as we feel for them . I don’t want to eat any dairy as much as meat now! Ruined my whole dairy taste of what once was innocent and good naturalness to the Earth of farming. Now all gone to the sickos working for the devil

    • Absolutely love your comment. It’s legal child prostitution at it’s best. It’s heartless, vicious, disgusting, unnatural, immoral, cruel and yet legal. It makes me sick to my stomach.
