Police have arrested and charged a man with a sickening array of child abuse and bestiality offenses on Tuesday after receiving a tip-off from an American team tasked with tracking pedophiles.
Australian Federal Police located and seized a mobile phone in Sydney which later revealed files allegedly containing child abuse material, highly explicit conversations about abusing children, and bestiality material, which police will allege was produced by the man.
As a result of the charges, 19 puppies and dogs that had allegedly been kept in cruel conditions and allegedly raped by the man, were also rescued and removed from the property.
The news of the raid comes as a Sydney festival has sparked uproar for describing sex with animals as one of society’s ‘last taboos’ in an advert for a famous professor’s talk about the ‘ethics of bestiality.’
Historian and author Joanna Bourke plans to discuss the morals behind ‘humans loving animals’ and ‘zoosexuality’ at the Festival of Dangerous Ideas (FODI) next month.
The festival, to be held at Carriageworks in inner-city suburb Redfern next month, has been touted as Australia’s original festival of provocateurs with speakers tasked with ‘holding uncomfortable ideas up to the light’.
The description of Ms Bourke’s controversial session states that while bestiality is ‘generally’ regarded as abhorrent, the subject is still depicted in a number of books, films, plays, paintings and photographs.
The historian plans to present a modern history of sex between humans and animals and will invite audience members to look at the ‘changing meanings’ of bestiality and zoophilia and the ethics of ‘animal loving’.
‘It is only in very recent years that some people have begun to undermine the absolute prohibition on zoosexuality,’ the speaker is quoted on the website. ‘Are their arguments dangerous, perverted or simply wrongheaded?’
Outraged Australians took to social media to lash festival organisers for allowing a presentation they argued was intellectualizing animal abuse.
