A former couple are facing serious jail time after filming ‘morally repugnant’ sex acts with their pet dog.
Kevin Thregold, 48, and Rebecca Thredgold, 36, pleaded guilty to bestiality charges after police uncovered a secret folder on their computer during a separate investigation.
Sixteen videos of the two performing sex acts on the dog on three separate occasions were found under a file titled: ‘Do not view – delete if we die’.

Police don’t know whether the lewd acts caused the dog harm because it had died by the time the videos were discovered, news.com.au reported.
The couple, who lived together in South Australia for several years but have since separated, pleaded guilty at Adelaide District Court on Thursday.
Ms Thedgold’s lawyer James Marcus told the court the mother of six was ‘disgusted with herself’ over her behaviour.
‘From the perspective of Ms Thredgold, she thought that that was something her partner wanted and it’s quite apparent that, from Mr Thredgold’s perspective, that is also what he believed,’ he told the court.

‘The offending arose out of an extensive sexual experimentation between the couple in which they engaged in risque activities.’
Police Prosecutor Georgina Venn pushed for a custodial sentence, telling the court the offending was too serious to warrant home detention or a suspended sentence.
‘The offending is undoubtedly serious and … morally repugnant in nature,’ she said.
The former couple will be sentenced over the offences later this month.
