A regular correspondent with a longstanding interest in the region stumbled upon this story from and passed it along. The law states that doing so is perfectly legal, so long as the animal involved does not suffer.
According to the Danish newspaper 24timer, this interesting gap in the law has led to a flourishing business in which people pay in order to have sex with animals. On the internet, several Danish animal owners openly advertise their services. The newspaper contacted several such individuals and was told that many of the animals have been engaged in this kind of activity for several years and that the animals crave the sexual stimulation.
Since Danish laws are so similar to Norwegian laws, the animal bordello phenomenon has led many to question if such a practice could be legal in Norway as well. Having no familiarity with the publication and having never heard of this phenomenon despite this particular report being more than six years old, I was suspicious that it was a lark.
Alas, not so much. Indeed, despite my obliviousness, the practice has gotten more recent attention in prominent publications. On Sunday, the news of the two-year-old Giraffe being killed sparked a spate of online outrage after a bid to save the animal by thousands of people failed.
The animal was killed, despite other zoos such as the Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Britain offering to give Marius a new home. Thousands of people had also signed an online petition to stop the killing. I was vaguely aware that there was some controversy over the giraffe killing from various social media headlines but never bothered to click through.
