Depraved pervert jailed for just nine months after filming himself raping his pet dog

A depraved father will spend less than a year behind bars after raping his dog.

Dean Beer, 56, sickeningly recorded himself sexually abusing his pet before sending it to another person on via Facebook Messenger.

But the disturbing footage was uncovered when the police went to his home after receiving information from the National Crime Agency about the uploading of an indecent image.

Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court heard his phone also contained two inaccessible category C photos of young girls aged between 13 and 15 and extreme pornographic images of women having penetrative sexual activity with dogs and a horse.

The defendant had also searched the term 'dog porn' six times. 

Beer, formerly of Stoke-on-Trent, has been locked up for nine months after he was described as having an 'unhealthy and depraved interest in bestiality'.

Prosecutor Maria Brannan said police received information from the National Crime Agency and officers attended the defendant's home on July 21, 2020.

Miss Brannan said: 'A Land Rover mobile phone was recovered. It contained two inaccessible category C images featuring girls aged between 13 and 15; three accessible extreme pornographic images and six still and two moving images of adult females having penetrative sexual activity with dogs and a horse.

'The search term 'dog porn' was used six times. conversation was found on Facebook messenger between the defendant, 'Taffy Dean', and a person who has not been arrested.

'The conversation concerned sexual abuse of the defendant's dog. The other person encouraged the defendant to film himself performing a penetrative sex act on his dog. The defendant did the act and sent the film to the other person.'

Beer, now of Wentloog Close, Cwmbran, Wales, pleaded guilty to possession of indecent images of children; possession of an extreme pornographic image; intercourse with an animal; and publishing an obscene article.

Beer was made the subject of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) and was placed on the sex offenders' register for the same period. The judge ordered the forfeiture and destruction of the phone.
