In general, animal pornography is legal to produce where both zoophilic activity and the creation of pornography in general are legal.
Laws concerning sale, transmission and ownership vary more widely.
For example, most countries have animal cruelty laws, and a prosecutor will argue that all zoophilia activity is animal abuse.
Some countries have a range of laws on their books.
More than 80 MP’s turned out for the historical vote which would see having sexual intercourse with animals legalised in the UK.
In the case of Kenneth Pinyan, who died from injuries sustained from receiving anal sex from a horse, local law enforcement found that there were no laws that allowed them to prosecute his friend, who had filmed the event and also allowed himself to be sodomized by the horse. That case prompted the Washington State legislature to draw up legislation outlawing sex with animals.
By contrast, many countries and US states are less precise about the scope of law in that they outlaw sex with animals, without defining what constitutes "sex".
Even if bestiality is not explicitly prohibited, there are often many other laws which can be used to effectively prosecute cases.
In general, these laws regulate performing or receiving sexual activity from non-human animals, or the sale, distribution, and ownership of zoophilic pornography.
The UK Government has voted to pass a law which would legalise bestiality after a late night of arguing over the controversial subject.In many cultures, humans are seen as fundamentally different from other animals and having sex with animals is seen as defilement.
