As the scriptures above state, the bible clearly prohibits bestiality. However, thank God for Jesus Christ who brought a way out of perpetual condemnation. So if you are struggling with the urge or are already involved in this and want to be free, LORD Jesus gives us a way out. Like all addictions, its hard to simply walk away in our own strength and be done with it; its essentially a demonic spirit trying to keep you (or your loved one) from experiencing freedom. In the ministries I've seen where people struggling with this problem have received deliverance, a demon of lust has often manifested. You can watch on YouTube a minister called TB Joshua delivering a man who was involved in bestiality as an example of what sort of demonic manifestations occur during deliverance. So begin the fight with the weapons you have at your disposal right now which are:
1. Prayer

If the battle has been so long and tiring that your faith is weak, going to a deliverance minister experienced with dealing with casting out demons is another solution. Jesus and His disciples did this deliverance ministry. So don't feel you can't seek help.

Here is a sample prayer for someone dealing with this problem:

Father in the Name of Jesus Christ, I come against this demonic spirit of bestiality that is ruining my life with the Blood of Jesus Christ and the fire of the Holy Spirit. I claim my freedom that was provided on the cross of Calvary and I received it now in the Name of Jesus.

Sodomy (/ˈsɒdəmi/) or buggery (British English) is generally anal or oral sex between people or sexual activity between a person and a non-human animal (bestiality), but it may also mean any non-procreative sexual activity. Originally, the term sodomy, which is derived from the story of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Book of Genesis, was commonly restricted to anal sex. Sodomy laws in many countries criminalized the behavior. In the Western world, many of these laws have been overturned or are not routinely enforced.

Zoophilia is a paraphilia involving a sexual fixation on non-human animals. Bestiality is cross-species sexual activity between human and non-human animals. The terms are often used interchangeably, but some researchers make a distinction between the attraction (zoophilia) and the act (bestiality).[1]

Although sex with animals is not outlawed in some countries, in most countries, bestiality is illegal under animal abuse laws or laws dealing with buggery or crimes against nature. 

Passages in Leviticus 18 (Lev 18:23: "And you shall not lie with any beast and defile yourself with it, neither shall any woman give herself to a beast to lie with it: it is a perversion." RSV) and 20:15–16 ("If a man lies with a beast, he shall be put to death; and you shall kill the beast. If a woman approaches any beast and lies with it, you shall kill the woman and the beast; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them." RSV) are cited by Jewish, Christian, and Muslim theologians as categorical denunciation of bestiality.
