Success: Bestiality Banned in Nevada

Target: Jason Frierson, Speaker of the Nevada State Assembly

Goal: Applaud the recent ban of bestiality in Nevada, saving countless animals from horrific abuse.

The legality of bestiality has largely been up to individual states since there is no federal law prohibiting it. In the past 15 years or so, there have been many bills enacted across the United States, banning the rape of animals in almost all states. Nevada was one such state that did not have a rule on the books regarding bestiality, until now that is. The Nevada government stepped up and spoke for animals’ rights, and that should be celebrated.

One possible reason why there were no laws regarding the sexual abuse of animals in many states is that the abuse usually fell under the category of sodomy, which was already illegal in most places. Sodomy is a broad term, referring to certain sex acts between consenting people and to the abuse of innocent animals for one’s own sexual pleasure. As the social climate in the west has advanced, sodomy laws have been overturned but this left the animals with no legal rights to not be sexually assaulted. This change couldn’t happen without the tireless work of animal rights activists and many petitions, including this one on ForceChange. Sign this petition to support Nevada’s bestiality ban.


Dear Mr. Frierson,

The Nevada state government recently passed legislation banning the practice of bestiality. The measure was passed unanimously, which goes to show how committed you and your peers are to protecting animals. Experts believe that bestiality is more common than most people realize, some studies even state that almost 5 percent of men and 2 percent of women have committed such atrocities. The amount of abusers out there walking among us is truly staggering, but if sexually abusing animals is harshly punished, hopefully it will cut down on the number of cases that happen each and every day.

The bill that was passed will also allow for victims to be removed from their abusive situations, and ban the sex trafficking of animals. It’s surprising to most people that these problems still exist in modern society, but they do and they cannot continue to be swept under the rug. All that does is keep animal victims suffering, and since they can’t speak out against their abusers or cry for help, we must take action to protect them. I would like to thank you for passing this important law and protecting animals from suffering terrible abuse.

  1. It’s sick that this actually had to be a law. This is the kind of stuff that has destroyed what little faith in humanity I had.

  2. This is so sick and evil,persons who commit this behaviour are obviously degenerates,animals like children need all our protection from the evil that walks among us.they should not be allowed to live
