On Thursday, the Spanish Parliament approved a new Animal Welfare Law that decriminalizes bestiality so long as the creature does not receive "an injury that requires veterinary treatment."
According to Mundotoro, "Bestiality will no longer be considered a criminal offense if there are no injuries to the animal. This is established by the new Penal Code through the new Animal Welfare Law promoted by Minister Ione Belarra that was approved in Congress on February 9."
Ione Belarra Urteaga, Spain's Minister of Social Rights and 2030 Agenda, supported the law's passing.
Bestiality was previously illegal, with article 337.1 of the Penal Code stating, "He will be punished with three months and one day to one year in prison and special disqualification from one year and one day to three years for the exercise of a profession, trade or trade that is related to animals and for the possession of animals, the one who by any means or procedure mistreats unjustifiably, causing injuries that seriously impair their health or subjecting them to sexual exploitation, a domestic or tamed animal, an animal that is usually domesticated , an animal that temporarily or permanently lives under human control, or any animal that does not live in the wild."
The new law reforms the Penal Code and deletes article 337, removing the "sexual exploitation" of animals language from the code.
The new reform, or title XVI, states, "It will be punished with a prison sentence of three to eighteen months or a fine of six to twelve months and with the penalty of special disqualification from one to five years for the exercise of a profession, trade or trade that is related to animals and for the Animal possession is the one that, outside of legally regulated activities and by any means or procedure, including acts of a sexual nature, causes an animal that is domesticated, tamed, domesticated or that lives temporarily or permanently under human control an injury that requires veterinary treatment to the restoration of his health."
The qualifying change is if the sex act with an animal causes the creature to need treatment at the vet.
