Shane Waters, who works in a supermarket as a stock checker has been jailed for having sex with chickens and his own dog.
Waters who has had previous convictions and jailed for abusing horses, was also banned from having animals for life.
Waters’ abuse came to light after a farmer discovered a number of dead and injured birds in a chicken shed on September 19, 2020.
He feared “something sexual” had happened to them and called the RSPCA and checked the CCTV footage.
The video showed Waters prowling around the farm and leaving the barn at 11.40pm, the Lancashire Telegraph reports.
“I need help. I know what I have done. I just get these urges,” Waters told officers when he was arrested on September 23.
During his interview, Waters told police he had been on the farm on about nine previous occasions “but usually only had sex with one chicken”, which resulted to the death of 15 chickens due to abuse.
He also admitted having intercourse with his pet dog over a four month period, but said the dog “did not like it and growled and bit him”.
Anna Chestnut, defending, said Waters hoped to rebuild his life upon his release from prison.
She said: “This is not the person he wants to be. He is thoroughly disgusted by his behaviour.”
Judge Dodd said: “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 banned waters from keeping animals, and made him subject to notification for life.
