A young Montérégie mother pleaded guilty to bestiality yesterday for filming herself masturbating her nine-month-old puppy.
The 30-year-old lady received an absolute discharge following a joint suggestion by both parties yesterday morning at the Longueuil courthouse.
However, she had to donate $350 to the Roussillon SPCA.
“The lawsuit has made the rounds of the case law. It is not yet a crime that is abundantly repressed. By demanding a donation to the SPCA, it seemed important to us to denounce the illegal nature of the gesture, ”explained Mr.e Mélissa Léonard, Crown prosecutor.

According to the statement of facts, the young woman still shared the family residence in the fall of 2020 with her ex-spouse, in order to facilitate childcare. Their nine-month-old puppy also resided there.
At the time, the mother frequented a website on which people offer their sexual services for payment.
It was established in court that the motivation behind this activity was to fund breast surgery.
At the request of a user who had this fantasy, she agreed to film herself masturbating her dog.
Subsequently, it was the father of the children who got his hands on the cell phone, which belonged to him, but which was used by the accused.
Opening it, he made the strange discovery of photos and videos of the event.
More than a year later, the 30-year-old was arrested by the Longueuil agglomeration police department, then charged.
His two cell phones were seized.
According to the prosecutor, it was visible by the reactions of the accused that she did not understand at the time that the actions taken turned out to be criminal offences.
“Just because there’s an absence of physical abuse doesn’t mean it’s not abuse. We cannot speak of appropriate behavior towards an animal,” said Ms.e Leonardo.
“Madame had great repercussions in relation to that; awareness. [La peine] take all of that into consideration,” she continued.
A report would also attest that the accused does not suffer from deviance.
Although her motivation was only pecuniary, she would never have received the promised compensation for the video.
The family dog was quickly offered for adoption after the fact.
