OK, so the emo thing wasn’t the best headline of the week. This is: Man sentenced over wombat rape claim. “A New Zealand man has been sentenced to community service after telling police he had been raped by a wombat and the experience had caused him to start speaking ‘Australian’…” Hat-tip to The Road to Surfdom.
A man who was accused of having sex with a sheep has walked free because the animal was unable to testify. Under Dutch law, bestiality is not a crime unless it can be proved the animal didn’t want to have sex.
Sadly, in Michigan, the defence that “a dead dog is not an animal and therefore cannot be violated against its will” won’t get you off charges of having sex with the carcass of your girlfriend’s dog. Saturday nights will never be the same.
