My Disturbing Behavior Paper is on the issue of, “Teens and Bestiality.” According to The Humane Society of Southern Arizona, “bestiality” is defined as, “The sexual molestation of an animal by a human.

Another article in regards to the disturbing behavior of bestiality is from the Metro West Daily News. It is the case of an 18 year old Sherborn teen that was caught on camera having sex with a sheep.
