A 40-year old man has now been jailed after admitting to having sex with multiple chickens, leading many to deaths and also raping his own Great Dane dog.

Shane Waters, who is the father of two children has confessed that he used to sneak into a farm located in Accrington, Lancashire. Waters, who works as a supermarket stock checker has previous convictions for abusing horses, as well. The 'animal sex offender' has now been jailed at Burnley Crown Court, where he will be serving for 30 months. Apart from his time in jail, he has also been barred and banned from keeping or adopting any animals for life. 

His abuse came to light after a farmer discovered a number of dead and injured animals in a shed on September 19, 2020. After seeing the condition of the chickens at the farm, and spotting some 'dead' ones he feared “something sexual” had happened to them and called the RSPCA and checked the CCTV footage. The footage showed Waters sneaking around the farms and leaving the barn at night, around 11:40 PM, according to the Lancashire Telegraph report. Officers caught Waters on September 23, 2020, after which he said, “I need help. I know what I have done. I just get these urges.” During the interrogation Waters reportedly told the police department that he had been on the farm on about nine previous occasions “but usually only had sex with one chicken”.

Prosecutor Barbara Webster, said: “He did not like performing the act and said sorry to the chickens after.” A total of 15 chickens died because of Waters’ sexual abuse, the court heard. Waters also confessed having intercourse with his pet Great Dane dog during a four-month period but stated that the dog "did not like it and growled and bit him". Defending Waters acts, Anna Chestnut said Waters hoped to rebuild his life once he had been released from prison. She further said that “This is not the person he wants to be. He is thoroughly disgusted by his behavior.” During the hearing, Judge Dodd stated, “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 then made an unlimited criminal behavior order banning Waters from keeping animals and made him subject to notification for life.
