PETA’s Statement on Bestiality

For Immediate Release:
June 21, 2016

Consensual sex is between two human beings who enter into it willingly, and that is never the case when an animal is dominated by a human. Having sex with an animal is raping that animal—something PETA has found in numerous eyewitness exposés of factory farms and slaughterhouses. Animals don’t have a choice, and cruelty to animals is illegal in all 50 states.
