Bad news for animal lovers who take the loving a bit too far.
Denmark has outlawed sex with animals.
The plan was first announced last year when a survey showed that 67 per cent of people supported the ban.
Yes, that means 33 per cent of people didn’t support it or weren’t bothered either way.
Previously it was legal to have sex with an animal as long as it didn’t come to any harm, but a new bill passed yesterday finally outlawed it.

Farm Minister Dan Jørgensen said: ‘The current legislation does not protect animals enough. It’s hard to prove that an animal suffers when human has sexual intercourse with it, and that is why we must give the animal the benefit of the doubt.’
A survey in 2011 found that 17 per cent of vets in Denmark suspected that an animal they had treated had had sex with a human.
