Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good evening! I can help you out with your legal question tonight. Is it only animals or are humans interacting with the animals?
it is humans interacting with animals
No, it is not illegal to view it, but it is illegal to participate in it.
even though I am not into stuff like that i accidentally came across a website that had bestiality and got really scared
No, you are fine. In California viewing images of bestiality is not criminalized. Penal Code 286.5 says that a person who sexually assaults any animal for the purpose of arousing or gratifying the sexual desire of the person is guilty of a misdemeanor. But viewing it, is not illegal.
thank you very much. That was all I really wanted to know
You are welcome! Have a great night. Take care!
one quick question viewing images and videos are both legal?
