Three men have been jailed after being convicted of running an animal brothel in Swansea, Wales. The ring leaders Adam Cafferty and John Cafferty and their father David Cafferty ran a ‘gentlemen’s club’ known as “The Ram Inn” in Grange Road, Swansea. During their trial at Swansea Crown Court the jury heard they setup a website on the hidden “Deep Web” where people from all over the country could select the animal of their liking and book in for an appointment.
David Cafferty, 52 years, had pleaded guilty to keeping an animal brothel at a previous hearing and was handed an eight month sentence suspended for two years. During the trial David Cafferty said he and his sons were business partners. He said he knew the premises was an animal brothel, but that he was not involved in managing or organising it, and took no money from it. Cafferty admitted he had “full knowledge” that the building was once again being used as an animal brothel. As well as various bedrooms, some with mirrored ceilings, one had buckles attached to a wooden frame.
