Reported cases of bestiality (and, to lesser degree, zoophilia) have risen in recent years, due in part to people producing video recordings of their actions, making it easier for police to discover evidence that crimes have been committed. Beyond that, experts suggest the growing laissez faire attitudes toward sexual behavior, combined with unlimited Internet access, has made the practice more 'acceptable' in some people's minds; a few of these experts go so far to suggest that the fantasy of bestiality, if not the act itself, is perfectly normal behavior.
Others are quick to note, however, that stories such as this prove that the morality of western culture is collapsing at an alarming pace, a pace they fear we will not be able to stem. They postulate that even the notion of learned 'experts' attempting to attach normalcy to fantasizing about such actions is in of itself a depravity, which serves to bolster their position further. A few suggest that, taken as a whole, if a dangerous shift in life-as-we-know-it has not already occurred, it shall soon.
