In Georgia, bestiality (also known as zoophilia or sexual activity with animals) is a crime. Bestiality is illegal regardless of whether the animal is owned by the perpetrator or not.
Bestiality is considered a form of animal cruelty and is punishable by imprisonment and fines. It is important to note that consent is not possible for animals, and that engaging in sexual activity with an animal is a violation of the animal’s rights and can cause physical harm to the animal.
Georgia Code O.C.G.A. § 16-6-6 (2010) specifically addresses bestiality. The following is the actual law § 16-6-6 (2010) as it is written.
