A serial animal abuser has been jailed for a sickening string of sexual abuse acts against animals.
Shane Waters’s sick sexual abuse of animals came to light after a farmer discovered a number of injured and dead birds at his Accrington farm.
Waters, 40, also admitted having sex with his own Great Dane dog and has now been jailed for 30 months, reports Lancashire Live.
As a result of his crimes he has been banned from keeping animals for life and has been incarcerated for 30 months, reports Lancashire Live.
Burnley Crown Court heard Waters, a supermarket stock checker, has previous convictions for abusing horses in 1997 and 2016.
On September 19 2020, the farmer at Lower Holker Farm, Accrington, opened the chicken shed to discover a number of dead and injured birds.
Fearing “something sexual” had happened to them, he checked CCTV and called in the RSPCA.
CCTV Footage showed Waters walking around the farm before leaving the barn at 11.40pm.
He was subsequently arrested on September 23 and told the arresting officers: “I need help. I know what I have done. I just get these urges.”
Barbara Webster, prosecuting, said: “He did not like performing the act and said sorry to the chickens after.”
The court heard a total of 15 chickens died because of Waters’ abuse.
He also admitted having intercourse with his pet dog over a four month period, but said the dog “did not like it and growled and bit him”.
Judge Dodd said: “As I understand it, at least 15 chickens died as a result of your sordid sexual activity.
“Those who kept the chickens are understandably horrified and appalled by what you have done.
“I have no doubt anyone hearing the details of this case will be disgusted.
“Your conduct is distressing and truly worrying, particularly in light of your previous convictions.”
The judge made an indefinite criminal behaviour order banning waters from keeping animals, and made him subject to notification for life.
