    10 Louisiana Senators vote against bestiality ban !

    The state Senate has approved a bill designed to make it clear that bestiality is illegal in Louisiana. 
    A law on the books prohibits “crimes against nature,” but it also outlaws so-called sodomy and was ruled unconstitutional in 2003. 
    New Orleans Senator JP Morrell says it’s important that the state has a way to arrest someone for having sex with animals.
    He told fellow lawmakers, “God forbid you vote against this bill, good luck explaining it.”
    Ten senators did vote against it.
    The measure does also specify that previously illegal forms of “sodomy” are no longer against the law.
    “Anal sexual intercourse between two human beings shall not be deemed as a crime,” part of the bill states.
    The measure now heads to the House of Representatives.
