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, or implicitly as part of existing animal abuse or sodomy laws.
Bestiality and furry
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. In contrast, an analysis of data from the Furry Survey suggests that one in six furries self identify as zoophiles.
