A vet who was filmed having sex with a horse and a dog has been struck off by the RCVS.
Oliver Fraser Lown of Suffolk was found guilty of five charges by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) disciplinary committee.
Videos were found in his possession that depicted him having sexual activity with animals.
The RCVS panel were told that in 2012 he pleaded guilty at Northallerton and Richmond Magistrates Court in North Yorkshire to seven criminal charges relating to the possession of extreme images involving people and animal and as a result he was given a conditional discharge.
The committee heard the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) opted not to prosecute him in respect of a bestiality charge but the RCVS found the charge to be proven.
Lown did not attend the RCVS hearing in London. He was represented by a solicitor.
Three of the charges related to the discovery of images or videos on a laptop and a mobile phone at his home near Ipswich, Suffolk.
Another charge related to footage of him engaging in sexual activity with a horse and a dog, while a fifth charge related to him sending messages that referred to sexual activity with animals.
Prof Noreen Burrows, chairing the committee, said:
“The material found in possession of the respondent and his own conduct… involved the abuse of animals and a total lack of respect for their welfare.
“In the judgement of the committee, each of the charges individually amounts to disgraceful conduct and the charges certainly amount to disgraceful conduct when taken cumulatively.”
