We’ve heard of people being arrested for getting it on in public. Which is pretty understandable. Even if you are in the throes of uncontrollable passion, society does ask you to refrain until you are in the comfort of your own home (or at least out of sight). However it’s a different thing to ask this of animals. Yeah, watching two beasts going at each other isn’t fun - especially on a family outing to the zoo. But it’s generally accepted that these things happen.
Well, not in Oklahoma it isn’t. A woman there has been fined after her two goats were caught mating in their own yard. The law in Oklahoma says it’s illegal for any two animals to have sex in public within Dibble city limits - even if the animal is fenced in on private land. How was she supposed to have stopped them – constant sex watch? Special ruminant chastity belts? Oh those naughty goats!
