Dying Gambler Fights to Repeal Dutch Bestiality Laws

Unpopular Dutch law, forbidding bestiality, receives attention as an Amsterdam local decides to wager all he has on roulette

In February of 2010, after years of debate and soul searching, the Dutch parliament finally passed a law criminalizing the romantic involvement between humans and animals.

At the time, a large crowd of Dutch residents, some accompanied by their furry life partners, demonstrated with tears in their eyes for the last time outside the Parliament building. The Dutch are known for their love of animals, and naturally not everyone was happy with the parliament’s decision.

One of those heart broken practitioners of bestiality was Guillaume, a corpulent man in his late fifties with sad eyes and an uneven mustache, who told anyone willing to listen that he found his soul mate in the twilight of his life in the form of Marishka – a sheep goat hybrid.

Fast forward to July 2011. The Netherlands is moving closer to abolishing the Holland casino gambling monopoly, rewriting Dutch gambling laws and joining the online casino revolution that has been slowly spreading throughout Europe.

Guillaume, soul mate of the sheep goat will never see the opening of the first regulated online casino in Netherlands. The malignant cancer that’s feasting on his body has spread and it will be a miracle if he makes it till the winter. A life long gambler, Guillaume has decided to go out with a bang and hopefully do some good. Guillaume has sold everything that he owns, which after taxes and feed came to a lackluster 72,000 Euros.

Netherlands gambling news learned that in August, exactly sixteen months after the Dutch bestiality laws were enacted, Guillaume plans to bet the entire sum on a single spin of the roulette wheel at a renowned western European casino. If he wins, he plans to bequest the full sum to lobby for the repealment of the bestiality laws – The Guillaume-Marishka Project.

If the roulette wheel fails him that day, and he loses the entire sum, he hopes the publicity will put a spotlight on the law which he sees as fundamentally unfair. Whichever the case may be, Guillaume does not expect to see the next day.

Having completed counseling, Guillaume has a 6pm appointment at a private euthanasia clinic where he will end his own life with dignity. He plans to be cremated. He already put aside a sum of money to have his ashes mixed with Marishka’s and shot into outer space.
