Apparently, a Pennsylvania couple loved their family dog too much and was arrested after police saw a sex tape. The newlyweds have been identified as Rachael Harris, 19, and Corey Harris, 24. They were charged this week with multiple counts of animal cruelty and obscenity. Rachael is facing four counts of produce/present/direct obscene performance; three counts each of criminal attempt-sexual intercourse with animal and conspiracy-sexual intercourse with animal; and four counts of cruelty to animals. Corey is facing four counts of produce/present/direct obscene performance and three counts of conspiracy-cruelty to animals. The whole incident came to the attention of authorities after Corey’s sister, Sheila Harris, brought her brother’s Canon PowerShot camera to a local SPCA office two weeks ago due to videos contained on the device. The videos show Rachael Harris on top of a dog “attempting manipulation of the dog’s penis into her vagina.” Harris is reportedly seen “attempting to allow the dog to perform oral sex on her vagina” and “masturbating the dog with her hand in a rapid motion back and forth.” Her husband Corey was recording the video. After viewing the video, the SPCA office called the police and a state trooper seized the video as evidence against the couple. On November 30, the trooper obtained a search warrant through Magisterial District Judge Jerome Nevling. According to the affidavit, he downloaded four videos depicting Rachael Harris attempting to have sexual intercourse with the dog.
The couple was married earlier this year and now faces a preliminary hearing on the charges on Jan. 11, 2017. After being charged this week, Rachael updated her Facebook page with an image containing the words, “Hakuna matata.” The Swahili phrase, made popular by The Lion King, roughly translates to “no worries.”
There is no word on where the dog is or his condition after the traumatic events.
