Man ‘rapes’ sheep, but did the sheep suffer?
In the fields of Haaksbergen, Overijssel the police arrested a man ‘raping’ a sheep because the sheep’s owner, who must have seen it happen, filed a complaint. Sex with animals in the Netherlands is only punishable by law if there is proof the animal suffered and the police need to investigate the matter further.
So if the police conclude the animal did not suffer, it can’t be called rape. But what was it? It surely wasn’t consentual. What about ‘abusing’ someone else’s property? Yes, animals are property here last time I checked. Any thoughts, people?
This is not the first time that sex with animals has made it on 24 oranges. The law hasn’t changed since the last time we posted about it.
