Tallahassee, Florida -- One state lawmaker is trying pass legislation that would make having sex with animals illegal.
State Senator Nan Rich filed the bill, which passed the Senate's Criminal Justice Committee Wednesday morning.
The proposal bans any human sexual contact with animals. Violators would face third degree felony charges.
If adopted as law, it would not encompass certain husbandry or veterinary practices.
The bill must gain Legislature approval and a signature from Governor Charlie Crist before it can become law.
