"There's a 100% recidivism rate and that's why we wanted to make sure mental health was a part of something that would be addressed," said animal activist Gina Greisen. "Not just take away all their animals and charge them with a crime but actually make sure they're getting the mental health to deal with the issues that led them to hoarding in the first place."
Greisen says the law for bestiality was necessary because Nevada never had a law against it.
According to Greisen, someone was caught committing that crime a few years back but was only convicted of indecent exposure.
"It's quite disturbing what people are doing to animals and we are so glad that this law is now on the books."
