Man Admits To Bestiality, Says He ‘Made Love’ To Dog
Monday November 28, 2011 7:19 PM
UPDATED: Monday November 28, 2011 7:25 PM

A man who admitted to having sex with his dog will not face jail time.

Evidence photos obtained by 10TV show Peter Bower with two of the dogs he used to own. A file of evidence against Bower also contained a love letter he addressed to his dog named Maggie, 10TV’s Glenn McEntyre reported.

In the letter, Bower wrote repeatedly of his love for Maggie and admited to having sex with her. "We made love," he wrote.

The file also contained photographs of Bower engaged in sexual intercourse with the dog.

In the absence of a law banning bestiality in Ohio, the strongest charge prosecutors could pursue against Bower was animal cruelty, McEntyre reported.

In order to prove animal cruelty, prosecutors had to prove that the animals were injured because of the sexual contact Bower had with them.

“The prosecutor moved to dismiss several charges that he felt he could not prove due to the fact that he could not show the actual harm to the animal,” Shelby Municipal Court Judge Jon Schaefer said.

Schaefer said both sides agreed to a plea deal. In exchange for a “no contest” plea to charge of injuring animals, Bowers was sentenced to community service, mandatory counseling and was banned from owning animals again.

Investigators, the prosecutors and the judge all said that under current Ohio law, it was the best they could do.

“I think the resolution is appropriate because we have a very sick individual,” Schaefer said. “This way we’re gonna get that individual, hopefully, into counseling.”

They say for a tough sentence, Ohio will need to create a tougher law.

Schaefer said that if Bower fails to get counseling he could be ordered to jail for 180 days.

Bower declined to comment, McEntyre reported.

Ohio Bill S.B 191 WEAKER SUBSTITUE for H.B 289
6 years ago

An Ohio bill, S.B. 191, that would make sexual bestiality, a crime is set for a vote in the state senate on Wednesday, May 30, 2012. (There is no record of this be voted on) The problem? There is a stronger bill, H.B. 289 that has languished in committee since its introduction. S.B. 191 would only make the act of sexual bestality a misdemeanor of the first degree on the first offense and a felony in the 5th degree on subsequent offenses. 

H.B. 289, on the other hand, would make sexual bestiality a felony on the first offense and allow the court to bar an offender from owning, keeping or living with animals and participate in counseling. H.B. 289 would also make clear the animal victimized by this crime could be seized regardless of whether he or she is a companion animal.


Below is the Ohio senate calender, the only action taken was:

Sub. S. B. No. 191 — Senators Hughes, Wilson 

Cosponsor: Senator Jordan 

To enact section 2907.12 of the Revised Code to make engaging in an act of sexual bestiality a criminal offense.
(Committee on Judiciary recommends passage of substitute bill January 26, 2012)

Raymond..We all know with animal abuse (torture..killing)..that it usually doesn't stop there and some abusers (probably more than we want to know) move on to killing people.. 


Don't forget..that some ( again, probably more than we want to know)..people who sexually abuse (RAPE) animals, also molest children too.
