An animal protection officer in the German state of Hesse has expressed frustration with a German law that makes spreading bestiality porn illegal — but the act itself legal.Madeleine Martin told the Frankfurter Rundschau that current laws were not protecting animals from zoophilia, and the problem was getting worse.

“There are now animal brothels in Germany,” Martin told the paper, and people were playing down the importance of the act by describing it as a “lifestyle”.

Luckily Germany’s animal protection laws, dating from 1969, are due to be reformed soon. Let’s hope the German government sees sense and outlaws animal brothels, finally.
