Paedophile who boasted of sex acts with dogs jailed for child images and bestiality

A paedophile who boasted of performing sex acts with a dog has been jailed after investigators infiltrated a chatroom used by a “dangerous” community of offenders.

Under the screen name “wolfpupjohn”, 46-year-old Jon Page shared and discussed indecent images of children and extreme pornography online.

The National Crime Agency (NCA) said he had “responded enthusiastically to a fantasy about rape and necrophilia involving children” in the messages.

Analysis of his computers, mobile phones and external hard drives also uncovered 78 images showing Page “engaged in sex acts with dogs”, officials said.

He was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison at Southwark Crown Court after admitting 22 offences including making and distributing indecent images of children, bestiality and drug possession.

NCA officers investigated Page at his flat in Kensington, London, in February 2016 and released him on bail while the devices were examined, finding indecent images of children and extreme pornography.

They caused Page to be arrested for a second time, when searches uncovered crystal meth, a class A drug, and the class B ketamine.
