Leviticus 18:23 And you shall not lie with any animal and so make yourself unclean with it, neither shall any woman give herself to an animal to lie with it: it is perversion.

Leviticus 20:15-16 If a man lies with an animal, he shall surely be put to death, and you shall kill the animal.  16 If a woman approaches any animal and lies with it, you shall kill the woman and the animal; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.


Deuteronomy 27:21 "'Cursed be anyone who lies with any kind of animal.' And all the people shall say, 'Amen.'
