CBC reports B.C. man charged with bestiality
CBC news anchor Miyoung Lee has tweeted that the first man in B.C. history has been charged with bestiality.
She identified a 38-year-old man named "Brian Cutterdige", noting that the station will soon broadcast a full report.
There's no indication at this point if it's a misspelling of the name "Cutteridge".
A man named Brian Anthony Cutteridge once wrote a paper full of footnotes, which is available on the Internet, arguing against laws prohibiting zoophilia (human-animal sexual interaction).
This was part of his conclusion:
Laws which criminalize zoophilia based on societal abhorrence of such acts rather than any real harm caused by such acts are an unjust and unconstitutional infringement on individual liberty. Though it has been argued that such laws are necessary for the protection of both animals and the greater good of society, the reasons given to support such arguments are not compelling.
With this kind of thinking around, perhaps it's time people start locking up their dogs.
