Bestiality is an act involving human-animal sexual relations. Various jurisdictions in many countries have laws on the books to prohibit bestiality, either explicitly as in a Washington, USA law[1], or implicitly as part of existing animal abuse or sodomy laws.

Bestiality and furry[edit]

The presence of bestiality (and indeed zoophilia) in the furry community and art of the fandom is a controversial topic among furries and their critics. A study of mostly United States furry convention attendees back in 1999-2000 listed zoophiles at about 2% of those surveyed, but doesn't appear to differentiate between zoophiles and bestialists.[2] In contrast, an analysis of data from the Furry Survey suggests that one in six furries self identify as zoophiles[3].
