Bestiality

Sexual relations between a human being and an animal.

At COMMON LAW, bestiality was considered a crime against nature and was punishable by death.

Today, it is prohibited by statutes in most states as a form of SODOMY. The penalty for committing the offense is a fine, imprisonment, or both.
