Ban Animal Rape in Denmark

Raping an animal carries no punishment in Denmark. According to the Danish law, it is legal to have sex with an animal, to spread animal pornography, and to have animal brothels. Although the legality of bestiality has been questioned on a number of occasions, a parliament majority believes that it is not necessary to ban sex with animals. Dyrenes Venner (Animal Friends) started a campaign in early 2010 for the introduction of a total ban. Recently, an episode in a TV programme about Danes who have sex with animals has sparked a new debate in Denmark.
