A veterinarian from Suffolk, England has been banned from the profession after videos emerged of him having sex with a dog and a horse.
Oliver Lown, 28, pleaded guilty to criminal charges relating to the videos in 2012, according to the Mirror. He was placed on a conditional discharge from practicing veterinary medicine at the time, but the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons has now totally removed him from the registry of veterinary surgeons, the BBC reported Monday.
“The committee has no doubt the conduct was of the utmost seriousness," Professor Noreen Burrows, Chair of the RCVS disciplinary committee, said in a press release. "The material found in his possession and his own conduct involved the abuse of animals and a total lack of respect for their welfare.”
The videos, which were filmed in 2009, depicted Lown having sex with a horse in "a stable setting" and a dog in "a house setting," according to the East Anglican Daily News.
Lown, who was trained in Hungary, never actually worked as a veterinarian in the U.K., according to the RCVS.
