Animal Molester Found Not Guilty After Sheep Fails to Testify


A man in The Netherlands who stood accused of having sex with a sheep walked free from court because the animal was unable to testify that it hadn't given him prior consent or that it had suffered emotional stress as a result.

Without this testimony people cannot be found guilty of bestiality in Holland. Animal rights campaigner Jos van Huisen noted "Short of putting the sheep in the dock, at the moment these perverts cannot be prosecuted."

The country's Minister of Justice, Ernst Hirsch Ballin, has since stated that he will fight to change the law so that in future it will be a criminal offence to have sex with animals.

end up as dinner on someone's table.

  Funny law  
Do does this mean if you drug a woman and you can rape her too? Over here you need expressed concent, not just a failure to say no or to be able to say no.

  It always amazes me  
how the seemingly more civilised parts of the world are plagued by stupidity. Mostly in their legal systems.

  I hope  
He gets mad sheep disease and his plonker falls off the Bah-tard.

  Jane, please be careful what you wish for  
There would be so many plonkers lying on the ground and sidewalks, that it would be unsafe to moonwalk anymore. People would be filing lawsuits over carpal plonker injuries.
