Sex with animals was legalized in 1969

Germany's ruling coalition is calling for a ban on bestiality—or the practice of having sex with animals.

The German parliament's agriculture committee is considering a legal amendment to describe sex with humans as "inappropriate" for animals. A hefty fine could be imposed on offenders.

A final vote will be held in the Bundestag (lower house) on 14 December.
