Peter Bourne, who is a company director of a holiday lettings business, was caught on CCTV on September 19, 2019, approaching two horses – named Hannah and Urani – from behind, before sexually assaulting them.

Video footage then showed him sniffing the paintbrush he had used in the attack.

Bourne’s interference with the horses was confirmed by vets to have caused both animals to suffer unnecessarily.

RSPCA inspector Keith Hogben said: “Hannah and Urani are two horses who have been put through a horrific ordeal, which this individual must reasonably have known would cause them suffering.

“Fortunately, CCTV footage meant we could detect these crimes and take action.

“It must have been exceptionally distressing, too, for the horse’s owners to know a man targeted and interfered with these animals in such a manner. Thankfully, we have secured justice for the suffering these horses were caused by this man’s actions.”

The two horses have recovered from the incident and remain with their two owners.

Sue Neville, owner of Hannah, said: “This has been such an emotional time for me, and the whole family. It was such a disturbing incident, that was really the last thing we expected to happen.

“If it wasn’t for the RSPCA, we would have been completely lost. They have helped secure justice for Hannah; and have been supportive and amazing throughout.

“We’ve moved house on the back of this incident, to protect our horse. It’s caused us a great deal of anxiety and worry.

“Hannah was always such a friendly and trusting horse; but she is now nervous and anxious to strangers. We are just so relieved justice has been served.”

Urani’s owner Pippa Wells added: “It’s been a really difficult time for us – and this is certainly not something you’d ever expect to happen.

“Without the RSPCA taking this forward, we wouldn’t have secured justice for Urani. This has totally transformed my opinion of the work of the RSPCA.

“Fortunately, Urani is now fine – but this is obviously something no horse should have to face. Thankfully, a positive outcome was secured at court.

Sentencing: 150 hours of unpaid work; ordered to pay £390 in costs and charges plus £150 compensation to each of the two horse owners. Eight-year ban on keeping animals (expires July 2028).

Sandyford, Stoke-on-Trent: Jason Price

#TheList traveller Jason Price, born c. 1997, of Burnaby Road, Stoke on Trent ST6 – shot and killed eight pheasants with an air rifle on private land

Jason Price, a traveller whose previous convictions include sexual activity with a child, has apologised to the owners of the Whitmore Shooting Estate – after shooting and stealing his pheasants.

The owner was alerted to the crime after hearing gunshots and then spotting Price loading something into the back of his van.

North Staffordshire Justice Centre heard police later found the 22-year-old with eight dead pheasants in his vehicle.

Prosecutor Sue Hayers said: “The injured party was at home at 9pm on January 14 when he heard what he thought sounded like silenced rifle shots. He saw a light shine in the trees and formed the opinion someone was outside.

“He saw a van parked up the road and saw someone throw something into the rear of the van. The person was holding a rifle. The vehicle pulled away.

“Police later located the van and the defendant. They recovered an air rifle, pellets and eight pheasants from the vehicle.”

When he was arrested, Price claimed he did not know the Whitmore land was private and said he intended to eat the birds.

The court heard the landowner, the Cavanagh-Mainwairing family, rears pheasants to be used in licensed shoots held on the estate, and the theft left them £320 out of pocket.

Price pleaded guilty to theft and a charge of trespassing at night with an air rifle to destroy game.

The offences put him in breach of a conditional discharge he received for another theft, when he was collecting scrap metal and took property that the owner had not agreed he could have.

Mohammed Fiaz, mitigating, said: “He has written a letter of apology for his behaviour. The reason Mr Price took the pheasants was for his own consumption. He wasn’t going to sell them on. He purchased the rifle legitimately.

“He was working as a labourer but unfortunately he lost that job a couple of weeks ago.”

Sentencing: 12-month community order with 80 hours of unpaid work; ordered to pay £320 to the victim. He must also pay a £120 fine for breaching the conditional discharge.

Norwich: Jack Butler

#TheList Jack Butler, born c. October 1997, previously of Stanley Street in Derby DE22 and at date of sentencing Beechwood Drive, Thorpe St Andrew, Norwich NR7 – caught with child and animal porn

Butler was caught with sick child abuse images and movies showing people engaged in sex acts with animals. Police came across the vile photographs and films when they raided his then address in Derby.

Analysis of Butler’s MacBook uncovered all three categories of indecent images, the most serious of which typically show young children carrying out sex acts with adults.

Derby Crown Court heard how since his arrest in October 2018 Butler has lost his university place and relocated to Norwich.

But he was spared an immediate prison term after seeking out help from a specialist charity and being deemed at low risk of re-offending.

Lauren Butts, prosecuting, said police attended Butler’s then address in Stanley Street on October 23, 2018 as an internet (IP) address from the home had been linked to downloading child abuse images.

She said analysis of his MacBook uncovered 16 extreme pornographic images showing humans and animals engaged in sexual activity.

Also found were 44 of the most serious category A indecent child images, 60 category B and 43 category C.

Miss Butts said: “It is fair to say the police got them because the defendant told them where they were.”

She did not reveal to the court the ages of the children involved

Butler was arrested and pleaded guilty to four counts of possessing the illegal images.

Gareth Gimson, mitigating, said his client has lost his university place.

He said: “He is working with a charity called ‘Stop It Now’ and receiving counselling.

“His mum and dad sit in court and he knows he has brought an incredible amount of shame not just on himself but on them.”

Sentencing: 10-month prison sentence suspended for two years. Ordered to sign the sex offender’s register for 10 years and given sexual harm prevention order restricting his computer and internet use. He is to undertake 100 hours of unpaid work and 20 rehabilitation sessions with the probation service.

Bolton, Greater Manchester: Kieran Huelin

#TheList Kieran Huelin, born 26/08/1983, of Felton Walk, Bolton BL1 8EN – caught on camera hitting and shouting at his pet dog

Animal abuser and paedophile Kieran Huelin from Bolton, Greater Manchester, UK

Huelin, a convicted paedophile, pleaded guilty to failing to protect the dog from pain, injury, suffering and disease.

In a video released by the RSPCA, the 36-year-old is seen walking around his flat while his brindle and white Staffordshire bull terrier Rosie is sat on an armchair.

In the two-minute video, Huelin waves a finger in her face before slapping her once. Rosie gets off the chair and follows Huelin before he ushers her back onto the chair.

He threatens to hit Rosie on a few more occasions, raising his fist in the air and putting his finger in her face, before appearing to slap her down again twice.

In the footage, Huelin looks unsteady on his feet and stumbles backwards on one occasion.

After being sent the video and some details of where the incident reportedly took place, the RSPCA investigated and inspector Danni Jennings visited an address on June 14, 2019.

Inspector Jennings recognised Huelin who lived at the flat as the man in the video and Rosie was also there. She also recognised the interior from the video.

Huelin signed Rosie over into RSPCA care while an investigation took place.

Inspector Jennings said in her witness statement that Rosie was in good bodily condition and was friendly and playful but showed submissive behaviour.

She said: “Dog owners should always make sure their pets are handled properly and not stressed or endangered with any aggressive or anti-social behaviour.

“Training should always be reward-based and should not include physical punishment as this may cause pain, suffering and distress.

“Rosie is a lovely and bouncy dog in real life but on this footage she is quite the opposite.”

Rosie is now in the care of the RSPCA and will be placed up for adoption soon.

Sentencing: 12-month community order – including an alcohol treatment order. Ordered to pay £800 costs, as well as an £85 victim surcharge. Banned from keeping animals for five years.

Forfar, Angus: Mark Findlater

#TheList animal porn offender Mark Findlater, born c. 1987, of Mains of Coul Cottages, Forfar DD8 3TX

Animal porn offender Mark Findlater of Forfar, Angus, Scotland

Mark Findlater was convicted in 2016 for possessing images and videos depicting sex acts between adults and dogs, cows, pigs and horses on his home computer.

Colleagues at an animal sanctuary where Findlater was working, had found a link to a bestiality website on a computer he used.

A search warrant at his home uncovered over 1,000 images and 400 videos of the sex acts. He was given a community payback order and banned from keeping animals for three years after admitting the offence, but flouted the latter restriction.

He was originally given a community payback order after he admitted possessing the extreme material between March 2011 and November 2013, but he repeatedly breached it and was warned by a sheriff he was “sorely trying” the patience of the court.

The breaches included continuing to keep animals in defiance of the ban.

Findlater’s lawyer told the court that her client recognised his failure to comply with the community order had left little option other than prison.

“Unfortunately, criminal justice feel they can no longer work with Mr Findlater and I think that decision has been made with a heavy heart,” she said.

“They really feel they are at the end of the road.”

She added: “He would be someone who would be very vulnerable in a custodial setting.

“Custody is something that frightens him, he is honest about that,” added the solicitor, who asked the court to consider a restriction of liberty order curfewing Findlater to his mother’s home.

Sheriff Murray told the accused: “When I first sentenced you I said these were horrendous offences.

“I said then that the choice was between what would be, because of the number of images, a relatively brief custodial sentence, or a lengthy community payback order.

“I think you understand a restriction of liberty order is nowhere near serious enough to deal with this, and in my mind there is no alternative to custody,” said the sheriff.

He jailed Findlater for seven months and placed him on the sex offenders’ register for 10 years.

Pontprennau, Cardiff: Dean Williams

#TheList Dean Williams, born 15/03/1980. of 13 Clos Y Ffynnon, Pontprennau, Cardiff CF23 8HW – hurled a small French bulldog to the floor from above his head before punching her several times.

Violent Dean Williams from Cardiff, Wales, UK, can now add animal cruelty to a long list of convictions which includes rape.
Violent Dean Williams can now add animal cruelty to a long list of convictions which includes rape.

Construction worker Dean Williams, whose long list of previous convictions includes rape as well as dishonesty, violence and motoring matters, threw the French bulldog, named Koda, to the ground and punched her in the head before being chased down by a witness on a busy Cardiff street.

Cardiff Magistrates Court heard how 39-year-old Williams was later found lying on the ground trying to entice the “cowering” dog from underneath a car after she had ran off in the early hours of May 4, 2019.

Williams claimed Koda “jumped out” of his arms but magistrates said his version of events was not “credible in any way” and found him guilty of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal.

Violent Dean Williams from Cardiff, Wales, UK, can now add animal cruelty to a long list of convictions which includes rape.

The court heard that the three witnesses all saw Williams pick up the dog and throw her to the ground near Richmond Road.

Two of the witnesses were students Sarah Bill and Emily Johnson returning home in a taxi after a night out.

Giving evidence to the court, Ms Johnson said: “I looked behind me out of the window and saw him pick it up above his head and throw her to the floor.”

She told the court she believed Williams used two hands and had picked up the dog holding two of her legs.

Ms Bill told the court she only saw Williams throw the dog when it was “about a foot” off the ground, after Ms Johnson called out.

Ms Bill then left the taxi they were travelling in to chase after Williams and the dog, to “try and get it off him because in my opinion he was inflicting pain”.

With the dog under Williams’ arm, Ms Bill said she followed them down Richmond Road and onto Gordon Road.

Ms Bill said she also saw Williams punch the dog in the head “more than three times”.

After chasing Williams, Ms Bill realised she was alone so ran back “hysterical” and calling for someone to call the police.

At this point Uber Driver Chris Inchley stopped to speak to the women after also witnessing Williams throw the dog.

At first Mr Inchley thought Williams was chasing after the dog because she was lost, but he told the court: “[Then] he picked the dog up above his head and threw it to the floor with force.”

He said he was “shocked” and that the dog “yelped”.

Mr Inchley added: “He was punching the dog to the head about four or five times. It was hard, it was very hard.”

The Uber driver then picked up the two women and they returned to Gordon Road where they found Williams laying on the floor looking for the dog.

Ms Johnson said: “When we came down we saw [Williams] lying on the floor looking under the car with a French bulldog cowering underneath. The dog was clearly in fear of this man. When the police came the dog came out.”

Police arrested Williams at the scene, and later interviewed him where he replied “no comment” to each question.

One of the officers, PC Southey, was at one point visibly upset as she gave evidence on Thursday. PC Southey described blood around the mouth of the dog and that it calmed down once Williams had been put in the police car.

A vet report found the dog had some minor injuries, including a small hemorrhage on her eye and a lesion above her eye.

Williams' solicitor Luis Williamson of Grech Gooden Solicitors based in Harrowby St, Cardiff, implied that witnesses to his client's latest act of sickening violence were drunk.
Williams’ solicitor Luis Williamson of Grech Gooden Solicitors based in Harrowby St, Cardiff, implied that witnesses to his client’s latest act of sickening violence were drunk.

Luis Williamson, defending, questioned if Ms Ball’s and Ms Johnson’s consumption of alcohol on their night out had impaired their judgement, which they both denied, and said there were inconsistencies in the evidence by the three civilian witnesses.

Mr Williamson added that the injuries of the dog were caused previously through “puppy play”.

Giving evidence, Williams said: “She jumped out of my hand and I tried to grabbing her because it was a busy road. She jumped out and I picked her back up. I’m an animal lover myself, I have had her since she was a pup. She was a family pet.”

He added that the dog was under the car only because of the number of people on the street, and denied hurting the dog or remembering interacting with Ms Ball.

In their verdict chair of the bench Martin Dennett said: “We have listened to the evidence we have heard today and while there maybe some inconsistencies, the underlying facts and descriptions are clearly articulated.

“We can clearly see there are facial injuries. We felt it suffered abuse at the hands of [Williams]. We are satisfied an attack took place and substantial in nature. We do not find your version of events credible in any way.”

Williams had pleaded not guilty at a previous hearing after being charged with one count of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal.

On Wednesday 17 July 2019 Williams appeared in court for sentencing.

The court heard Williams was alcohol-dependent and had consumed around four to five pints of lager on the day of the incident but “was not drunk”.

A report by the probation service said Williams was on anti-depressants and he told them he drinks “as much as I can get my hands on”.

Castle Bromwich, West Midlands: Wayne Horkan

#TheList sexual deviant Wayne Tarot Horkan, born 10/11/1970, of Chester Road, Castle Bromwich B36 9DP – filmed his partner having sex with a dog; collected almost 2,000 images and videos depicting bestiality involving horses and dogs

Company director Wayne Horkan admitted two charges of possessing extreme pornographic images.

Police found the businessman had downloaded 1,469 still images and 210 moving ones involving sexual acts with dogs and horses. He had also used particular search terms to look for this kind of pornography.

Mr Timothy Harrington, prosecuting at Birmingham Crown Court, said the material had been downloaded between April 2014 and April 2015.

He added: “Two of the videos, it was readily apparent, involved a woman with whom the defendant had been in a relationship with.”

He continued: “He admitted he got sexual gratification from these films and had watched them on a number of occasions.”

In passing sentence Judge Melbourne Inman QC said: “Between 2014 and 2015 you downloaded imagery which it is not necessary to detail again, which are abhorrent.

“Two of them involved a lady whom you were living with which is an aggravating feature.

“There is no suggestion at all this was anything other than consensual adult behaviour.”

He said he had taken into account the significant delay involved in the case and that there had been no repetition of the behaviour.

The judge said Horkan was an intelligent man who had lost “important” employment as a result of the offence but had since set up a company with a partner.

Lynette McClement, defending, said the defendant’s initial relationship with the woman had been a financial one although that had changed.

She said: “In the course of that relationship his interest in extreme pornography was limited to that timescale. This was a shared interest.”

She said the business he had embarked upon had every chance of being successful and employed 10 people.

Sentencing: fined fined £4,000 and ordered to pay £1,200 costs.

Peter Gladstone, who has also been exposed by anti-paedophile vigilantes for online grooming of young boys, formed an online relationship with another man who coerced him into having sexual activity with a dog. Gladstone then took pictures which he retained.

Gladstone admitted a charge of bestiality, committed between May 5 and June 17 2018 in his home. He also pleaded guilty to possessing extreme pornographic images of himself and the dog.

Defence solicitor Willie Young told Sheriff Gordon Fleetwood: “He had never met the man concerned. But he carried out these acts because he was coerced into committing these acts or the relationship would come to an end.

“He is sickened by his behaviour. This is a young man who has on-going needs and continuing assessment.”

Since Gladstone had been in custody for several months, Sheriff Fleetwood told him: “This time you have spent in custody is punishment enough.”

But he placed Gladstone under three years of social work supervision and ordered him to participate in a sex offender’s programme.
