BESTIALITY is said by Muslim jurists to be the result of the most vitiated appetite and the utmost depravity of sentiment. But if a man commit it, he does not incur the Hudd or stated punishment, as the act is not considered to have the properties of whoredom; the offender is to be punished by a discretionary correction (Ta’zir). According to Muslim law, the beast should he killed, and if it be of an eatable species, it should be, burnt. (Hidayah, vol. ii. 27.) Obs According to the Mosaic code, a man guilty of this crime was surely to be put to death. (Ex. xviii. 19.)
