SYDNEY: A man faced an Australian court yesterday charged with having sexual relations with a rabbit and the sadistic killing of 17 other rabbits
whose carcasses were found dumped in a lane.
Brendan Francis McMahon, 36, North Sydney, appeared briefly before Central Local Court Magistrate Allan Moore yesterday charged with having allegedly
committed the offences over the past three weeks.
McMahon, a New Zealand born finance company director, sat quietly in the dock during the hearing at which he was represented by barrister Doug
No plea was entered to a total of 21 charges laid by polcie against McMahon, a business partner with Jason Meares, the former brother-in-law of James
McMahon, who's company website claims he is a former Bachelor of the Year winner, was arrested by detectives at a house in Tamarama early
The investigation began after skinned and partially-skinned dead and dying rabbits began to appear in a laneway off York Street, near Circular Quay in
The laneway adjoined a building in which McMahon occupied a first floor office from which he ran a financial planning and mortgage brokerage
Before McMahon was charged police alleged some of the rabbits had been thrown from some height into the laneway.
In addition to 17 rabbits, police also found a dead guinea pig in the lane.
Alarmed at the continuing discovery of freshly killed rabbits, some whose genitalia had allegedly been mutilated, detectives began contacting city pet
stores to determine who had been buying rabbits.
Just what the hell is wrong with this world? First a man dies from a horsepounding in Washington state and now we have a Kiwi banging rabbits?
Just ...........what the?..........nevermind.......
PS anyone heard from Stewart? Maybe he can shed some light, I always kid my Kiwi and Aussie friends about sheep but this takes the cake.
