A vet from Budapest, practising his profession in the U.K., has been struck off after being filmed having sex with a horse and a dog, and boasting about it online.
The Daily Mail reports that Oliver Fraser Lown from Suffolk, was found guilty of five serious charges by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) disciplinary committee. Videos of his actions were found at his apartment as well as other hard core pornographic material featuring animals.
The suspect, who is in his 20’s, was in court in 2012 having been found with bestiality porn in his possession.
Lown has previously pleaded guilty to seven criminal charges for possession of bestiality pornography at Northallerton and Richmond Magistrates Court in North Yorkshire in 2011.
Lown was born in Hungary and graduated from the Szent Istvan University in Budapest. He was registered with the RCVS in 2013.
Three of the charges against him were in relation to the discovery of images or videos on a laptop and a mobile phone at his home near Ipswich in the U.K. One of the video clips shows Lown engaging in sexual activity with a horse in a stable setting; another is with a dog in a “dog house” setting.
Professor Noreen Burrows, Chair of the Disciplinary Committee, said: “The committee has no doubt the conduct was of the utmost seriousness, the material found in his possession and his own conduct involved the abuse of animals and a total lack of respect for their welfare.”
She continued: “In the judgment of the committee, each of the charges individually amounts to disgraceful conduct and the charges certainly amount to disgraceful conduct when taken cumulatively.”
The committee’s findings state that: “The Committee has no doubt that the only way in which the welfare of animals can be safeguarded, public confidence maintained and proper standards of conduct upheld is by directing the Registrar to remove the Respondent’s name from the Register.”
