Zoophilia otherwise known as bestiality is the act of having sexual relations with animals. Many people see this as love toward the animal. However, we all know better that this is not love, that this is indeed animal abuse. We must come together as a community to even think about making this illegal and or banned forever.
Not only is this a risk toward animals however, it is a risk factor for humans who have sexual relations with these animals, and their family members. Diseases can be transferred from animal to human and vice versa.
Infections that are transmitted from animals to humans are called zoonoses. Some zoonoses may be transferred through casual contact, but others are much more readily transferred by activities that expose humans to the semen, vaginal fluids, urine, saliva, feces and blood of animals.

Infections/Diseases:
Brucellosis in humans is a potentially life-threatening multisystem disease that can be extremely difficult to treat. There are several varieties of Brucellosis, all caused by bacteria of the genus Brucella, the most notable being B. abortus and B. melitensis which affect larger species of domestic animals, and B. canis which infects dogs and other canids. All are widely spread around the world. The most severe infections are thought to be associated with B. melitensis which primarily infects goats, sheep, and camels in the Mediterranean, Asia, Latin America, parts of Africa and some southern European countries. Humans can catch B. canis through contact with the body fluids of infected dogs, especially semen, urine and vaginal fluids. Dogs can be infected with Brucellosis without showing any signs or symptoms, and infection can only be diagnosed with specific blood tests The typical symptoms of the type of brucellosis contracted from dogs are: fever that comes and goes, loss of appetite, fatigue, weakness, malaise, sore joints, low back pain, spine pain, headache, depression, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhoea, vomiting, weakness, dizziness, unsteadiness of gait, and urinary retention Heart and lung complications can occur. Infected people exhibit only some of these symptoms. Other forms of brucellosis can be more severe.

With approximately 500,000 zoonotic infections a year worldwide (source: CDC), brucellosis places a large burden on humanity. Brucellosis has been reduced to rare disease status in North America (excluding Mexico) and northern Europe through vaccination and eradication programs, but it remains rife throughout the rest of the world. In most countries up to 10% of dogs carry this bacterium, and even up to 42.7% in some provinces of China representing a major threat to the health of veterinarians and people who handle the blood or semen of infected animals. In the USA, there are only about 100 cases of human brucellosis diagnosed per year. Although some sources consider it underdiagnosed and underreported. Most other countries have much higher rates, with high risk areas including the Mediterranean Basin (Portugal, Spain, Southern France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, North Africa), South and Central America (including Mexico), Eastern Europe, Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, and the Middle East.
Emerging zoonoses
New diseases that can jump from animals to humans are called emerging zoonoses. The emerging zoonosis situation changes constantly, in an upward trend. An example from the equine species is the rare Hendra virus, originally passed from flying foxes to horses. The implications for zoophilic sexual contact of each emerging disease should be carefully assessed by practitioners.

Zoophilia and human sexually transmitted diseases
HIV / AIDS
HIV (the "AIDS" virus) was originally a zoonosis acquired from primates (notably monkeys) in Africa,[12] probably via hunting and eating but possibly via animal bite.[13] It only lives in primates (humans, apes and monkeys) and is not believed to survive long in other species or away from the human body and fluids.

Other STDs
Human sexually transmitted diseases ("STDs") are not carried or transmitted by animals.
However, many human pathogens can survive in animal fluids for a limited time, and therefore STDs may theoretically be transmitted by an animal that has multiple consecutive human sexual partners in a short enough time frame to allow pathogen survival.

FBI Study of murderers who rape and mutilate-linked with bestiality.
-"In the murderer sample, those offenders were more likely to have the paraphilia of zoophilia (i.e., bestiality) and to begin to experience rape fantasies..."the ultimate expression of his perversion is in the mutilation of the victim." Ressler, R.K., “Murderers Who Rape and Mutilate," JOURNAL OF INTERPERSONAL VIOLENCE, September 1986, page 89.

--The FBI found high rates of sexual assault of animals in the backgrounds of serial sexual homicide perpetrators. (Ressler, R.K. (1988). Sexual homicide: Patterns and Motives. Lexington, Mass.: Lexington Books.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th Edition (American Psychiatric Association, 1994) classifies bestiality among the paraphilic disorders - deviant, forms of sexual gratification.

Dr Vizard commented: "It's pretty revolting and no one really wants to talk about it; but cruelty to animals, if accompanied by a sexual interest in animals, is a high-risk indicator of a future sex offender."

People argue with those who can see the truth, they’re excuse is what if the animal wants to have sexual relations. Well, to be blunt the animal surely doesn’t want to have intercourse with a human. They have instincts when their hormones are in over-drive to reproduce with their own species, this is why a dog might hump a leg or cat for that matter. It is wise to get your pets fixed, it is also wise for those in the farming business to let your animals do what is natural with their own species.
The fact of the matter is, the animals that are being raped can die, can become paralyzed and even have their sexual organs protrude from their vulva, or their rectum protrude from their anus. Which can cause serious infections and other health risks.
In order to stop this cruelty we must, protest and push our government into seeing the reality of harm this causes our animals and or people.

Signed,

Mary Robbins
