TALLAHASSEE, Florida (AP) -- Florida lawmakers may finally enact a law against bestiality after years of inaction.

A bill (SB 344) was scheduled on Wednesday for a final reading. It could be voted on in the House this week after being unanimously approved by the Senate in March. The legislative session is scheduled to end on Friday.

The state has no law specifically prohibiting sexual contact between humans and animals.

An infamous case arose in 2005 when prosecutors had difficulty bringing charges against a blind Tallahassee man accused of having sex with his guide dog.
