A 39-year-old woman filmed herself having sex with her dog in a depraved act involving whipped cream.
Police found the extreme bestiality video on Suzy Cairns’ mobile phone along with a huge cache of indecent images of children being sexually abused and exploited.
Prosecutor Jim Robertson told Livingston Sheriff Court the movie “appeared to be self generated involving the accused and her pet dog”.
He said the animal, understood to be a Labrador, was present when the police raided her home in Livingston, West Lothian, Scotland in March 2017.
Although details were not given in court, it is understood the offence involved the use of whipped cream.
Cairns pled guilty to two counts of possessing pornographic material between February 2016 and April 2017. She admitted to the possession of indecent photographs of children being sexually abused, as well as, being in possession of “extreme pornographic images depicting in an explicit way a female engaging in sexual activity with a dog”.
Her name was added to the sex offenders’ register with immediate effect and sentence was deferred for background reports.
According to the prosecutor, detectives received intelligence from Police Scotland’s Cyber Crime Unit indicating that the suspect’s IP address had been used to access indecent images of children.
While executing a search warrant against her home in Livingston, West Lothian, Robertson said: “She [Cairns],was interviewed and a mobile phone was seized and examined.
“Indecent images and other images were found within the phone.”
He said no category ‘A’ images showing penetrative sexual activity with children had been found.
But there were three Category ‘B’ images showing non-penetrative sexual activity and 161 photographs in the least serious Category ‘C’.
In addition, he said, there was one Category ‘A’ movie involving children as well as the extreme porn video showing sex with the dog.
He added: “She was interviewed and made various admissions at that time.”
Defense attorney Neil Stewart, defending, said the usual criminal justice social work reports on his client’s background would be required before sentencing in the circumstances.
“The report might reveal certain other information. At this moment in time I wouldn’t be inviting the court to call for any other form of reports,” Stewart said.
Sheriff Peter Hammond called for a background report and an assessment of Cairns’ suitability for tagging under an electronic curfew.
He told her: “You pled guilty to a serious matter which requires me to obtain reports.
“In the meantime I have to explain that because of your plea of guilty to a sexual offence, as of today you have become subject to the notification requirements of the Sexual Offences Act.”
Cairns would be told how long her name would remain on the register when she returned to court to be sentenced on 9 February, Sheriff Hammond said.
