A 37 year old ‘sick’ man who had sex with his pet chickens while his wife filmed him has been jailed for three years.
Rehan Baig, was arrested after a police tip-off that he had images of child abuse of children as young as six.
Police also found pictures of Baig and his wife Haleema, 38, carrying out sex acts on a dog and footage of him having sex with his pet chickens including one that was dead.
The video and photo clips were saved in a file called ‘Family Vids’ and were described in court as ‘first-generation, homemade movies’ featuring the couple performing bestiality. Some of them were ‘of some duration in length’.
In July 2019, their home in Bradford was raided by the National Crime Agency, by which time there were no dogs or chickens in the house.
Among the files they found were pictures of two dead chickens on the floor while Rehan Baig put one of the dead animals in a binbag.
The chickens, all family pets, died as a result of Mr Baig’s constant bestiality.
Sentencing the couple yesterday, Judge Richard Mansell QC said the acts and were carried out for Mr Baig’s ‘own depraved sexual gratification’, and ‘would make any right-thinking member of society sick to their stomach’
The judge said his act was ‘depraved, perverted and despicable’ and said the creation of the videos was ‘simply beyond comprehension’.
His wife, Haleema Baig was given a six-month suspended prison sentence after Bradford Crown Court heard she was a victim of coercive and controlling behaviour as police found a video camera in their bedroom that she did not know about.
The judge also announced Mr Baig had been banned from keeping animals and put on the sex offenders’ register for life.
