Doll Stanley, campaign director for In Defense of Animals, said - "Thousands of In Defense of Animals supporters were moved by this horrific case and want to see justice done."
Stanley added, "A healthy society protects its innocents: vulnerable children, animals, elderly citizens. Sexual predators must be made to fear the loss of freedom and a stinging financial impact. We call on District Attorney Marvin Schuyler to take zero tolerance stance on bestiality and prosecute Yetman to the fullest if he is found guilty."
