The Denmark government has passed a temporary law making
bestiality legal once again in the country.
Denmark had become one of the last European countries to ban
bestiality in 2015 but parliamentarians chose to suspend the law
this week for an undetermined period of time.
Police forces in Copenhague were overwhelmed by citizens
denouncing their neighbors having sex with their domestic
animals during the confinement, forcing Parliament to
temporarily legalize bestiality until the pandemic is over.
“I would rather my citizens having sexual intercourse with their
domestic animals, and enjoying themselves during the confinement
than to go completely insane with boredom,” said Prime Minister
“Multiple studies indicate that sexual intercourse with pets is
a powerful form of stress relief, lowering not only blood
pressure but also harmful stress hormones associated with
depression and anxiety, and elevating beneficial ones linked to
happiness and relaxation,” Health Minister Heunicke explained.
When asked if the law could be sustained indefinitely after the
pandemic, Prime Minister Frederiksen said she was not closed to
“Many things will change after the end of the pandemic, maybe
the population will wish to carry on with such practices. The
people will decide,” Frederiksen told reporters.
Imam Mohammed Eriksson Shroeder, a representative of the Danish
Shia Muslim community, praised the announcement and said it was
great news for the Shia and Sunni Muslim communities alike
explaining that the practice had always conformed to Islamic law
“if, and only, the animal is butchered after the sexual act.”
