Pet proposals in Texas saving dogs, cats left in hot cars, banning bestiality and more

Maybe the Texas Legislature really has gone to the dogs.

Or maybe state lawmakers are just looking out for their furry friends.

Dozens of bills protecting animals — measures that range from getting them out of locked hot cars to preventing bestiality — are weaving through the Texas Capitol in a race to the governor’s desk before the session ends May 29.

TOPICS: Culture/Society; News/Current Events; US: Texas
KEYWORDS: animalcruelty; bestiality; deviancy; pansexuals; perversion
Be sure and read the paragraph stating that bestiality is not against the law in Texas:

Banning bestiality: It’s not a crime for Texans to have sex with animals, but a couple of bills would change that. Under the plans, Texans who have sexual contact with animals could receive a sentence up to two years in jail.

And if the animal has severe injuries or dies because of the sexual contact — or if that contact occurs in the presence of a child younger than 18 — the offender could face a felony charge. HB 1087 could soon head to the House. The Senate has already passed SB 1232.

What happens to the animal if the Texan suffers severe injuries or dies?

It's not a crime here because it's never been a problem here. Why pass a law for a crime that does not exist? Now. If Texas was was a liberal Blue State....

The law discriminates against Muslims.

Every car thief is going to say they broke into the car to save an animal.

Who then jumped out and ran away.

Politicians are idiots. They never think things through. The ones that do, pass this crap deliberately. This is a shout out to their fellow civillian criminal thugsters.

Every car thief...

OH has the law that it's okay to break into a car to save a pet. The police have to be called and I think they have to be there.

The overall impact just might be that people are less likely to leave their pets in overheated cars.

Not every law is written the same and thieves will still lie and claim whatever. Couldn’t get through. Pet was in too much trouble. Thieves lie.

“Every car thief is going to say they broke into the car to save an animal.”

And every murderer is going to claim self defense?

If that happens, the animal has to find a new Texan.

Save the babies from the abortion centers. They have a soul.

Then, and only then, can you even envision saving animals.
